He was awful, wasn't he? Lucky for him Mark is so good at interviews, and is always amusing and interesting, or it would have been rubbish! Particular moments of rubbish note: "In Devil In Amber we find out Lucifer has a sister. Do you have any siblings?" (what?? Are we at primary school now?!). Also when he asked, "How old were you when you went to Bretton Hall?" (how old are most students? How is that interesting??) Then Mark replied with "Six." And the interviewer looked really thrown until everyone started laughing! :D

But hey, Mark is ace. And hopefully someone decent will want to make the fillum soon...

PS DEVIL DOG!!!!! ;)

Aw, wish I'd known about this!

Sounds like the interviewer was a total dick though, but at least Mark got some jokes in.

Didn't know where to ask this and this seemed a good place.

Has there been/going to be an audio book for The Devil in Amber as there was with the last one?

Mark said something about this at the event at Foyles, but can't remember exactly what. Was it that he was struggling to find the time to do it? Anyone else who was there remember??

Yeah, Mark said at Foyles that there probably wasn't going to be an audio book for DiA. I assume the sales for VC weren't brilliant.

He should do a version for Radio 4 instead.

But hey, we have the BBC TV version of VC to look forward to, so can't complain I suppose! :)
