The Blog That Time Forgot

It's been a while but I haven't been idle, I promise! Monster Odyssey Book 2, The Wrath of the Lizard Lord comes out at the beginning of June and I'm preparing for the onslaught. Much of the run-up to last Christmas was spent with me being offline and on task which was great.




I love this cover. It takes me back to my childhood fascination with dinosaurs, monsters that really roamed the Earth! Awesome. The book was really fun to write, too. I do believe in connecting with my inner eleven year old when I'm writing these stories. 

I watched At The Earth's Core and Warlords of Atlantis recently and they didn't stand the test of time for me. I can't remember how impressed I was with these films at the time. The first Doug McClure film The Land That Time Forgot stood up better and I suspect Michael Moorcock's involvement in the screenplay probably helped. I do remember going to the cinema to see that one!


I also used to enjoy reading comics about this chap:


 

But more about him another time!

What about the James Mason version of Journey to the Centre of the Earth? Now that has stood the test of time. Great film. Oh and yes, your cover looks awesome :-)
