Richard you are odd!

your books are as weird as hell.

I have read every one many times over and can still say i do not truely understand any of them, they confuse me like mad (especially the amazing dead things trilogy)! I still love them and relish the challenge of trying to decifer each and every one of them.

I look forward to babylon with much anticipation, i cannot wait to once again be thrown into the world of the bizarre and spend many hours scratching my head trying to work out what exactly it's all about!

Jon --

Odd is my middle name. Along with Weird. And Hell, perhaps, could have been my surname if it hadn't already been used by the frontman of the Voidoids.

You do me a great compliment in saying you've read my books 'many times over'. The 'Dead' trilogy has indeed caused quite a bit of head-scratching over the years, so you're not alone! Suffice to say, I hope you enjoy BABYLON -- K.J. Bishop has contributed a *very* fine introduction.

Best wishes
Richard

Ellen --

Hi. Nice to hear from you. Babylon is scheduled for late 2005 -- I believe that means November.

There's a synopsis up on the PS website, by the way.

I think the common theme in all Richard's books is human dreams and desires made real trying to find a balance with the ordinary world.

Anyway I can't wait for Babylon either!

Thanks, Jason. When the Babylon artwork is available, I'll post it on my website and/or this messageboard.
