I'm Werner Peeters, I'm 29 and I'm from Belgium. My first encounter with
Julian May books was during a trip to Russia in the late '80's, where
these books with their attractable covers (you know, the snake, the skull
etc.) were on display in one of the tourist shops. Unfortunately, they
were to be paid in Western valuta only, making their price outrageously
high. When I returned to Belgium, the first thing I did was to visit my
local library, and they even turned out to have a translation in Dutch.
After reading them (being a slow but thourough reader the books took me a
week each, which is in my standard pretty high), I took the first sale
opportunitiy to buy the whole series, and I've been buying all newer works
Julian May was also for me the gateway to a bunch of other authors in
whose work I've become interested, just because their books are edited by
the same publisher, or at least are on display next to each other in most
stores. Some names: Zelazny, Martin, Jordan, Kay, Bradley... I really
cannot recall them all.
About bringing the works of Mrs. Majewski to the big screen: would the
British actor John Thaw (a.k.a. Inspector Morse) not be the perfect
Rogatien? Just wondering... I also would pick Matt Damon as a younger
