FROM THE GREAT BEYOND BLOG HOP




AngelaGwen, and Roland Yeomans are hosting "From the Great Beyond Blog Hop!


We have been asked to write a post about a famous deceased author or celebrity who we would like to contact in a seance,


My choice would be Stieg Larsson, author of the series, Millennium Trilogy - The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.

I would be fascinated with his response to learning that the series became an international success after his death and his reaction to learning his books were made into movies.

There would be many questions that could be asked about his writing and the creation of his characters.  The focus character of his books, is such a dark, strong woman it would be interesting to find out how he developed her and where his inspiration for his development came from.

I haven't read any of his stuff... yet.
Maybe I'll get a chance over the holidays...

My goodness, that's an excellent choice. I think I'd want to contact Abraham Lincoln and learn how that man survived the insanity of his amazing presidency.

I loved that series. The MC is incredibly flawed, but knows how to take care of herself and get even. I rooted for her all the way. Great choice. It would be so interesting to know what Larsson thought of becoming famous after his death.

It would be interesting to know his thoughts on fame after death. Cool choice Carolyn.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Excellent choice. The dude deserves some fan love!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That's right, he didn't live to see the success of his books!

Perhaps I'd want to meet E.A. Poe in a seance. The important thing would be - do not invite all of them at once. Paranormal overload.

It would be fascinating to learn more about his creation process for the series. I've seen the swedish movies. Those were great.

Tara Tyler said...

i feel bad that his great success is post humous! those would be excellent questions!

L.G. Keltner said...

Great choice! He wrote some great books. Too bad he didn't live long enough to enjoy his fame!

Angela Brown said...

Very interesting choice. I'm just hoping my books will see some level of success before I pass to the Great Beyond :-)

Michael Di Gesu said...

I had no idea that this author was departed. WOW... to have such fame after death. I didn't think this happened to artists anymore.

Very interesting choice, CM.

I've not read his work, but they sound like some great questions!

Popping over from Dan Brown Portal to say hi, and have a great weekend!
