Has anybody read any of this bloke's adventure books? His most famous book is 'Ice Station'. I recently read 'The idol', and previously I read 'Contact'.

If you are after a novel where the storylines are twices as fantastical as a Bruce Willis action thriller, then this is the author for you.

*sorry for necromancing, only just noticed*

I love his books. Utterly brilliant. Can't get enough of them! Just finished the newest Scarecrow book, and am waiting for the new Jack West books to come out.

Haven't seen any new ones come out in Britain unfortunately! (nice to see you back again, again.)

I feel terrible. That's such a nice sentiment, after I just left a smart arse comment in your composition thread...

Yeah, I overlooked that. Mostly because the name 'ElliotViola' is rather obvious ;)

And amusingly this is actually the first time I've been on here in months as well!
