    Re: The Gates of Hell

    Amazing but obvious portal site.

    Maybe with the right “key”, opens directly to Hell.

    Elementary my dear Doctor, the “U” and “I”, being next to each other on the keyboard, were pressed together by my somewhat arthritic fingers.

    Sorry Doc, it was a typo.

    Speaking of magic, I saw Secrets of Dumbledore. Too much “wand-waving and weird if cute animals”.

    Question: will people relate to “intelligent” magic as portrayed in the Demon Accords?

    Idyle thoughts about Deamon Accords actors… Fantasy casting is a hoot!

    The fact is that there are many, many wonderfully written characters and dialog to die for…

    Timothée Chalamet – Declan

    Anya Joy Taylor – Stacia (Although Florence Pugh might be an equally good choice)

    Chris Evans – Chris Gordon

    Tanya – ????

    Meryl Streep – Anything she wants!

    Seriously, would be better than Marvel!

    Thank You!

    I’m sure that the Maine winter, even though it’s milder near the coast, isn’t helpful.

    Despite the obvious attraction between two “outsider” 17-year-olds, there was a huge gap between Caeco and Declan’s emotional maturity. One was nurtured and loved and the other was raised in a deadly hyper-masculine environment. its a wonder that Caeco was as sane as she was.

    Remember, at this point, Declan’s romantic relationships were only in his head and it’s probable that Caeco did not have any given her environment.

    If John, and this is a big “IF”, can retain “creative control” with a veto on casting and script approval, it might be possible to produce a great series. It probably would seriously cut into writing time and the set location would not be in Maine where he lives. (This was Jim Butcher’s error in giving up effective creative control.

    Technically, no problem with current CGI.

    Casting, I think most fans would be willing to make suggestions, but there actually are some very talented actors who could do a great job in Demon Accords
    Budget, Aye there’s the rub. With CGI, it gets expensive, so the exec. producers need deep pockets.

    Think we could get Denis Villeneuve to direct? (LOL)

    Good Morning, I am a big fan of both Jim and John. Re: TV series, one of (the many) biggest flaws of the Dresden Files was the casting. I could not get past them casting a short Harry and a tall dark Karen??? Oddly, I thought that having Bob manifest as a character was innovative and worked better than expected. Overall, the TV Dresden Files was better seen as a low budget “different universe” than the book series.

    A DA TV/movie series would need strong tough author input and creative adaptation as well as great casting (see Pinterest for ideas).

    Loved your style from the first paragraph. Probably comes from a mutual love of Heinlein first person dialog and teen scouting forays into the Canadian wilderness (Algonquin Park circa 1960).

    There are a couple of clues in the Compendiums.

    However, (and I have not read Demon Divine yet) my expectation is that Holly, due to her Demon/Werewolf transformation, will be a challenge for Declan when he faces the Queen of Demons.
