As an aside...


whilst I await a call from Scott Pack with Haruki's mobile phone number, I thought there'd be no harm in sending this e-mail to Stan Lee

Hello Stan,
We own a bookshop in London, England, and have run a competition to ask our customers who they want to see to do an event in our shop. Stan, you got the most passionate response from our customers. Tell me, when do you plan to visit the UK again, and when you do, could you fit a visit to our shop into your busy schedule. If you want to know more about us, we're called the Big Green bookshop, so googling the name will bring up all sorts of stuff about us.
Look forward to hearing from you soon,

I'll let you know what he says.

I can't believe he's still alive! I was a huge Marvel fan when I was 12 and would still love to meet him.

Stan is very much alive and well and involved in comics, if not quite the creative whiz he was back in the 60s. He gets a bad press from a lot of comics fans who think he gets too much credit for creating all those wonderful characters, and that the artists get too little credit. My feeling is that the artists are hard done by, but actually Stan deserves all the credit he gets - without his imagination what would those artisits have been drawing.

Anyhoo, good luck getting him to the UK, but I think you'll have a tough time. I'm sure I read something a while back about him not liking long plane journeys anymore.

There's always the Big Green Bookboat, Monty.
