Vermillion was the best graphic novel ever. Any other such projects in the works?

Thanks, Ed. No, no ongoing projects. I wouldn't mind doing more, but nobody's asking...

Damned shame. I've followed your work since the Eighties (when I was an obsessed, very young kid reading you alongside Rudy Rucker in various magazines), and always thought it would be perfect in graphic novel form.

Vermillion fulfilled that for me, and while it ended the only way it could... ehh. Vertigo needs some street cred after 'Constantine.' Who knows?

We'll keep the good thought, huh? Anyway, thanks again.

I really enjoyed Vermillion, but I could tell it wasn't doing well when a badly written email of mine turned up in the letter column.... Did you ever give any thought to adapting your original plans as a novel or series of novellas?

Fantastic news! It's Lucius Shepard month in my house. Just finished rereading Life During Wartime for the first time in about 10 years - I didn't really understand it then and I'm not sure I do now, but I've always said it's one of my favourite books and it still is. I also went on a spending spree and picked up Floater from a UK 2nd hand online dealer called Cold Tonnage (after a line of yours I believe), Viator, Louisiana Breakdown and Handbook of American prayer from another online store. Then, the piece-de-resistance - a branch of UK bookstore Waterstones had a copy of Trujillo still in stock which they mailed to me and which arrived today. Maybe after that little lot I'll reread Vermillion

Well, that's certainly a list. I hope you enjoy some of it, Jonathan.

Still working on it all. Thought Viator was fantastic, but hope the expanded edition will explain or develop more the vision of where the ship was going. Loved Floater - a superb variation on a classic story type. My absolute favourite was Handbook of American Prayer, for which words fail me. I'm currently reading through the Trujillo stories. I've just read "Eternity and... but I'm afraid I didn't really understand it....

Glad you enjoyed the stuff, Jonathan. As for E&A, I think the moral of the story is you are what you eat...

Indeed an excellent series. But from memory, it finished it's print run without resolution on issue twelve?

Most irritating!

Not my fault, A. Vertigo tubed on me and made me collapse the last issue into an ending,

Didn't think that it was. What was the last issue by the by? Issue twelve?

When I emailed PS in July, Pete Crowther said he hoped to have copies late August or early September. I believe they're trying to launch a proper eshop on their site, so hopefully the two will coincide.

Damn - meant to post that in the Dagger Key thread. Curse me having multiple windows open! If only PS could reprint/continue Vermillion, that really would be surprising...

That was my feeling. Karen berger had me do another treatment, but said she didn't understand it.

Of course she didn't understand it. How could she understand it?

People don't understand David Lynch either. Most of the time people don't understand anything if it's weird enough to be interesting and good enough to be original.
