The Geomancer


Hellboy and Me

All writers are fans. However much they attempt to be the consummate professional in public, at conventions or in private they geek-out like the best. I have so much on my geek agenda it's almost a book in itself: The Prisoner, Twin Peaks, Twilight Zone, Batman, Ray Bradbury, Michael Moorcock, Orson Welles, The Doors and the Universal monster movies for starters.

But way up the list is Mike Mignola's Hellboy. So when I was asked if I wanted to write a novel about the big red guy, I did what any other fan would do...

What would be your geek moment?

  1. Congratulations! That sounds like a lot of fun. The cover's lovely, too.

    Writing a Hellboy novel would definitely be a geek moment for me. As would writing episodes of a new, less cheesy ThunderCats animated series. Or voice acting for a cool animated series too, like Venture Brothers, Family Guy, Simpsons, Metalocalypse, etc. Those are just a few of many.

  3. I'd like to write a 6-part Wonder Woman comicbook series. Why not dream big, eh? ;)

    Congrats on the gig - Hellboy is officially Very Cool.
