Mr. Scott, you posted this a year or two back and I was wondering if anyone had guessed correctly yet or not? I've trawled through the site but I didn't see an answer. If not: is it possible that the individual Hekate described as a 'man of Scots' from the '1200s' - the man she first Awakened yet later killed with a hailstone - possibly be Alexander III who died in 1286 under mysterious circumstances and/or weather conditions? flamelssecret/idk.gif
AND
There are 5 magics and 5 elements: Do the 5 elements correspond each to a specific magic or do the magics utilize bits of all the elements in order to function properly?

Great article in the Feb. 2011 issue of National Geographic on the Paris catacombs, including a nice picture of a carving of Cernunnos himself. Will fit quite well with my reading of The Magician at school!

Speaking of Cernunnos, all I've been able to find regarding pronunciation of the name is either KAIR-noo-nos or kair-NOO-nos. Michael, can you add your insight to this, please?

Thanks
Pat

Mr. Scott

I was wondering if the Five Invasions of Ancient Ireland might be a good place to look for clues in your amazing book series. Thank you for your time and once again I love your books.

Hi there

CAN you please let me know if there are plans to release all (of your) back catalogue on Kindle Ebook Format? I am dying to read some of the other books written. I love Irish Mythology and have read about the Sidhe - from the likes of Kenneth Flint and Morgan LLewellyn...

Please read the CoC regarding the sharing of personal information, and asking for Michael to contact you directly. Thanks. Kris/dreaming

**removed language related to modern religion. Please see the CoC. Thanks. Kris/dreaming

and the fact that the Norse goddess Skadi was both goddess of ice and hail, and vengeance....

But, as modern religions won't be used, and only Odin has been mentioned, I am clueless.

So my question is, Have we met or heard about either the victim or the killer who used the hailstone before?

I think someone guessed the name of the gentleman killed by a hailstone of the forum earlier, but no, it is not Alexander.

I can give you a clue: Dante's Inferno.

flamelssecret/clap3.gif Thanks for taking the time to reply, Mr. Scott, I know you've been super busy and I'm really excited to read the next installment. In response to your answer, I have to say I feel like a real flamelssecret/confused0058.gif because my dunce cap is made of iron to protect my fragile skull. Did you mean that particular 'Scot' as Hecate's victim?

We see a lot of Immortal characters and Elders, generally they do not appeared to have aged a day unless they are reliant upon an external substance for immortality, as the Flamels are. But Dora was actually quite old in appearance. Could that be because she gave pieces of herself away over the millenia, wrapping the living in her "auric energies" to provide them knowledge?

I do know the answer to that... yes he does, very much so! He really enjoys seeing how much thought and research you guys put into some of your theories and posts, and is often surprised to see how close some of you get to situations that are about to happen, or characters that he is about to introduce! That's why he pops in most days! flamelssecret/clap3.gif

Dear Miicheal Scott,

I have a very strange question. When you write do you find it more difficult or less, not to allow outside influence?

What little research I've done following the story, you've taken characters that are from deep bodies of work, and they are but they aren't the same. That definitive line between the two is so crazy sharp!!! Wow. I pray that unto you the responsibility of * writting awesomely * is not a burden . whatever you do don't stop.

Ps. J. Dee? 007? he must pay Charon two silver coins. No good deed goes unpunished.

It is an interesting question - and I always answer those!

Some writers come up with the characters first and build the story about them, others create the story and then fit the characters into their tales. I began with the story - specifically the idea of using the great myths from all across the world and tying them together.

Once I had the story outline (which was very, very detailed), I populated it with the characters I needed. For example, I could not have my twins wandering around Paris without meeting the most famous French warrior, Joan of Arc. So there we have an example of the location suggesting the character. Other characters - like Dee and Machiavelli - were in the book from the very beginning.

Once the story and characters are in place, nothing must interfere with that because, of course, a single change impacts across the entire tale.

So, to answer your question: no, I allow no outside influences.

And I'm sure Dee will pay a price ... though to whom is a different matter!

Michael
