News / The problem with graphic novels!
« on: November 30, 2012, 06:09:01 AM »
Literary prizes have no business with comics. I was tickled to death by the announcement last week of a Costa Book Awards shortlist that included not one but two ‘graphic novels’, and the subsequent declaration by the chairman of next year’s Man Booker judges that he would be open to the idea of such things being submitted for that as well. You idiots. You miserable, slavish, pompous old greyhairs.

Just read 'In the Company of Ghosts' and really enjoyed it. I think Stephen Hunt had the greatest imagination of any author working today in just about any genre and am astounded that he can turn his pen to so many differerent genres without blinking. Does anyone know if he teaches at any colleges? I know lots of writers do to make some money in this times of change. I would love to sit in on his course on world and character creation.

He was the last of his kind.

No more impossible missions for him.
