I slaved like a manwoman on my V.C: The Game proposal. When I go back to Preston in January, I should find out what Jim thought of it. :D

Admittedly, I did use the Graphic Novel for inspiration on alot of my character designs. I mean, how could I not? Ian Bass is wonderful!

One of the concepts for a Purple Zombie;

& on my first board, I introduced the plot by doing a short comic stip of Lucifer & Joshua's conversation in the lavatory. [My game starts in Naples, & skips out all the London fiascos].

I was wondering how would I contact Mark.. would it be through the publisher or through the people who (cant think of the word damit) to do with tv the production people, I know who it is and what the site is.

Reason is not just a crazed fan but I was reading the book last night and it was when Lucifer met with Emmanuel and it mention about moving books aside and one of the authors was Bleasdale... I was sat in shock for ages repeating to myself "Mark Gatiss wrote a book and my last name is in it"

I know he probably wont get the letter IF I wrote one but its worth a try.

Well....I just finished reading it yesterday. WOW. I am amazed haha. I only read it because it was by Mark, but I really got into it and liked the book a lot! I think I might write to him and tell him how good it was hehe. I was constantly shocked by it and I have recommended it to a non-League friend. I'll let you know what he thinks. I bet he loves it, like most people should! :P

Yeah, I liked that the style was just old-fashioned enough to give you a nice taste of old adventure stories, but not enough to be confusing during a relaxing read. Of course, he does need to sell the book, so it can't be off-putting. :)
