Hi Jason,
Thanks for the question! I'm so glad you love Legionnaire. I love the series too and it's been frustrating not being able to publish a new book in more than a year now. Like so many people, the pandemic disrupted my life and I had to get a new job. The new job is great, but it takes a lot more time than the previous job and that has disrupted my writing routines. I am slowly putting together the thirteenth book in the series. It's tentatively called The Seduction of Malaquita (Malaquita is one of the city states conquered by Diamonte). Never fear, Marcus and his legionnaires have a lot of fighting left to do!

Hi Mr. Balkind,
I responded to your note on Linked In. Thank you very much for letting us know about this exciting documentary you are producing. The podcast, The Hijack, is excellent. I listened to it through Audible. It is really shocking. I'm looking forward to your documentary.

Dear Gilbert,

I just sent you a message through your LinkedIn account about your terrific comments on the Audible Original podcast 'The Hijack.'

I was one of the passengers/hostages whom Owen interviewed. I have been collaborating with Owen for two years now since June 2019, when he did his first recording on this topic in London.

Then we met up in Karachi and Islamabad in November 2019. We found the actual ghost-like aircraft (a Boeing 720 similar to the iconic 707), which is moth-balled in next to a museum on the outskirts of Karachi, and we entered the cockpit, where I re-enacted to Owen my voice broadcast 40 years ago to Kabul Control Tower. That original broadcast was done at gunpoint and with lead hijacker Tipu holding a grenade to my head.

I also did a talk at the World Bank office in Islamabad.

I am halfway in making a documentary film of the same topic/story.

Also, I have written jointly with a London-based playwrite/dramaturg a theater version playscript.

I am happy to talk about any questions you may have on my triple media projects, or on the Podcast itself. Google my name and see the WAPO article/story by Frank Van Riper. Also the 1818 Society article/story written by me (attached to my LinkedIn message to you).

My contacts are below. Grateful for your receipt of this message.

Thanks and best regards,

correction to my message on the vaccine:

I got the 100 mcg dose level in July and in August. In fact everyone in the country who got either the Pfizer or the Moderna vaccine, got the 100 mcg. level.

I have been in the Moderna Phase 3 large trial since last July. I got the two doses (1000 mcg. each time) in July and August respectively. Last week I got a booster shot, since I was accepted into the new Moderna trial on booster shots. 50 mcg , half against SARS-2 and half against the variants.

Fascinating process. I was on 'Good Morning America' (Zoom) on July 27, when the Moderna Phase 3 trial launched.

I am happy to answer any questions from the perepective of a trial participant.

We're all staying inside riding out the Corona Virus. If you're bored you might check out the March to Other Worlds Promotion. You can find the discussion on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/GilbertStackAuthor/. Or you can join in the discussion of a lot of great classic books at Written Gems on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/519247-written-gems. Our next discussion will be on Nine Princes in Amber starting in early April, but you can always join in on one of the older discussions.
