aw,I understand your pain! Have been wondering about Thomas' and Dennis' travels since they left us..the thing is,you cannot force art..it is either in SK's mind and willing to flow,or not..I think when you do,you end up with crappy sequels,and nobody wants that,we have enough of those.Me,personally,I am hoping his creative juices flow and he hooks up his grandkids,like he did Naomi and (who else,someone help me I forget who he dedicated Eyes to)..the thing about storytellers,especially ones like SK,is they love telling the story..and their minds don't stop churning them out.I am hoping Stephen thinks about this project,but,as I say,you can't force art.. :)

I am sure he has heard it before , because it has come up before on this message board.. I think every now and then he reads the message board or some of it, so I'm sure he probably knows the people would like that.. :)
What? I hear he's hardly ever on! Barely knows it exists . . .at least that's a rumor on Facebook.
;;D
Come to think of it, what happened to Facebook . . . I wandered in here and now I'm stuck.
Eyes of the Dragon is one of my favorites too, for a variety of reasons. A sequel though? The cool part about the original was that it could be considered a young adult book. I read it when I was eight and again recently. It was like reading a different book!:eagerness:
I venture to guess that his entire body of work consists of amalgamations of Eyes of the Dragon.

I finished reading the book for the first time this evening. I loved it and, I know, it took me long enough to get round to it but even at 51 I'm still a young adult at heart and would love to find out about the further adventures of the characters from Delain.
