    Dear Mr. Sellers,
    I enjoyed reading your well-written and informative book “John Carter and the Gods of Hollywood.” I was grateful to get the perspective of someone who is both knowledgeable about the ways of Hollywood and a devotee of the works of the great Edgar Rice Burroughs.

    Thank you for your info in Wikipedia on Captain Nieves Fernandez. I am writing an adventure novel (my sixth) with the lead characters being two English, off-center, Coast Watchers displaced by the Japanese. In this novel (tentative title – When All Else Fails) Neville and Clyde are involved in the Leyte invasion. Your material will be useful in constructing backgrounds/personalities for some of the Filipino characters. I will not be using actual names, but if you have any concerns regarding my using any of your material, please contact me.
