All you need is to come to a gathering of the Ghouls.

Now go back and read them all again, but slower..
Find out the bits you missed.

That would be fun if y'all (did i really just type that ha,ha) could see past social ineptitude ha,ha.

I do have a pile of other books to read but reading won't be the same again, not to cast aspersions to other authors and books but nobody quite does it like Mr. Slade.

Oh and i forgot to add in my previous gushing post i liked how you wove all your other books into this this one in certain ways, such as the Headhunter taunts, the use of Uber and so on, clever :mrgreen:

Ah, erm, i notice you allude to Corkscrew's death via Naploeon again, remember when i mentioned that Corkscrew was left in hospital...

In the conversion to e-books, I can make changes.

I'll decide that when I'm doing RIPPER.

Hmmm, mysterious...look forward to your decision, we'll leave Corkscrew hanging by his hooks then for now... :mrgreen:

So you might be changing Ripper slightly?
Or would you spin off the story into a short story, because there are a few loose ends in all thw books. Like you said in an earlier post somewhere on the board..

What other loose ends are there dreab, from the other books ? I know Ghoul still had 'someone' at the end...

This single post has sparked a huge debate on facebook.

So, to set the record strait for those who are worried, I'll ask the question that is buzzing facebook:


Does this mean that you will be changing the content of the books in electronic format, effectively altering the cannon of the series?

Or are you just talking about tightening a loose end like the Corkscrew issue?

Well . . . that's the one thing good about ePublishing . . . corrections can be made much more easily. Also it would be way too cool if you included jpeg links to some of the pics you have here in the background info in the morgue drawers . . . or just include the pics as jpeg files. :music: to my eyes . . . :lollol:

Naw . . . you've just been reading all the books more recently than most of us . . . so it popped out at you. :D I was listening to a brief interview that was provided about Jeffery Deaver and he said he uses the audio formats of his novels to remind himself of where his characters are coming from . . . (he has several story lines going) . . . I think that's a useful tool when there may be several years between new books with the same characters.

E-publishing is forcing me to reread every word of the 5,600 page Slade canon.

Consequently, I'm not only making notes about every detail I've forgotten - i.e. in what month was Robert DeClercq born? - and thinking of plot ideas that were subconsciously planted years ago, but THE MICHAEL SLADE COMPENDIUM is taken shape at the same time.

Except for cleaning up flubs, I won't change the novels. It would be cheap of me to keep loyal fans buying the same book again and again and again.

Ask and ye shall receive.

Thank you, Slade.


For some reason that post became a topic of rumor and speculation on FB, even though it was easily solved by asking a direct question.
