People will no doubt now always assume that certain parts of stories, characters,

etc. are drawn from others. This is simply not true. I have been writing these

particular stories since I was a child. Sadly, they probably will never be taken


That is not to say that these places or people had anything to do with these old

stories, they did not. And some things though stolen from me did not ever go

anywhere and maybe others did. Who knows? But does that mean these stories,

which I still insist I will write someday, should be considered pointless or silly

copies? I think not. I am not the hack in this regards.
