Thanks Michael for being one of the most thrilling writers of all time. I first read Headhunter when it first came out and have every one of your books. You are the only writer that I can not guess who is the killer until the last of the book. I can do it with every other book I read but not yours. This my dear sir is the mark of an excellent story teller. I liked the last 3 books but not as much as the first 13. I love books that tell a story and keeps me guessing. I am waiting for the Headhunter movie to come out. I am telling everyone about it ever since you told me about it at Chapters. Keep writing the thrillers.

Welcome, cottonpatchhoney. Stick around, we don't bite - at least not hard.:wink:

The more, the scarier.

Hope you enjoy yourself here.

Welcome, Cottonpatchhoney. This is Slade.

We'll see what you think of # 14. It's more like the earlier novels.

Any more clues for us to ponder over, guv'nor...
my vote is for a tour of the old haunts of the previous stories.

Hello. I've been a forum member for awhile now, but don't post too often. However, I do have a scrolling slideshow on my MySpace page of different Slade covers. A horror board that I practically live on, I have a Ghoul cover as my sig. Am I worthy of being a disciple?

I'm back and loving the site!

Postby The Doctor » Fri Feb 27, 2009 1:35 am

It's so unusual for an author to go this far!
You have surpassed yourself and I will now be frequently here!
My life has changed somewhat since earlier postings and I now work for a company, who works with law, literay agents and such.
The boss is a great nephew of Catherine Eddowes!
The basement is where David Bowie wrote "Space Oddity".
You can tell, I'm in my element!
... and I tried to get Lloyd Levin introduced to Slade.
I now set occassional cryptic questions on LBC through the night on the rolling quiz. I'm due to put a Slade question on soon! Listen out between 3 - 4 am, in Canada it's going to be evening / late evening and you can catch LBC on the web!
I have forced Slade on many people, friends and work colleagues and from previous posts shown my devotion to th work.
Swastika made me delve deep into the web and the information I uncovered made me fear for my life for a while after!
Especially after writing an email directly to Sir Jonathan Henry Sacks and receiving a preserved reply!
Trust me, this planet is very weird! Thank heavens for the sanity of Slade!

Will I qualify for a key? Hope so!

...and another thing!

Postby The Doctor » Fri Feb 27, 2009 1:43 am

Yes, like others posting info on other author sites, I upset Stephen King readers on his site when I told them that King's books were running out of puff and it was difficult to decide if it was ever worth reading another!

Yes, I created a mild revolt on the site and mentioned Michael Slade as the better author!

Hows that for a "killer" blow???

a review on Amazon

Postby The Doctor » Fri Feb 27, 2009 3:43 am

I just posted my first review on Slade on Amazon.co.uk.
I am so amazed I never thought to do this before! Check my review on headhunter... it'll make the author want to buy it!!!
