Home, Home Again
I’m in London, and it’s brilliant. Utterly.
I’m in final revisions for The Ghosts of Southwark, the sequel to The Zombies of Mesmer, with fresh inspiration as I walk along the streets of London. Today I’m visiting The London Dungeon with a friend. I haven’t been there in 15 years, and it’s quite different than it was back then. In a new location, too! Afterward, we’re taking a Jack the Ripper Walk. My first ever!
I’ve also started to plan the OMG London Tour for 2014, where we’ll stop at all the places I’ve mentioned in my stories and books, most of which take place in this city of my soul. Yesterday I visited Brompton Cemetery which played an important role in Avalon Revisited. I’ve also seen Arthur’s home; The Wellington, where Arthur and Avalon had their first date; Nick Stanton’s home in Bolton Gardens, which is important in the AR sequel (of sorts): Avalon Revamped, aka Sewn; and Southwark Cathedral, the central location in The Ghosts of Southwark.
Today I’ll be visiting Nickie Nick’s home and the site of Bedlam Hospital as it was situated in the late 19th c.
More to come!
