You have an amazing home page, very cool-congratulations on the baby.

To the Mandel family,

Congratulations on your baby girl. Josh, I grew up playing your games. Some of the happiest moments early in my life can be summed up in 2 Acronyms: SCI and SCUMM.

For over a decade, my collection of legacy games gatered dust. Upgrading to XP made most of those games unplayable. I sold and gave away most of the games, except for my favorites. The adventure games stayed.

As most people are oft to do at points in their lives, I've fallen on some hard times lately. Coincidentaly, I have also discovered DosBOX, giving those old Stories a chance to take me back to happier times. Those games help me through some bad nights. Cliched, but true. Freddy Pharkus is still, and probably always will be, one of my favorites. For that, I want to thank you.

I still have faith that the art of interactive storytelling is far from dead, and I look forward to seeing and playing your future work.

To Josh Mandel. I must say I am a fan of your work. You have a knack for Game Design. I loved frontier Pharmacist, and Your voice acting as King Graham of Daventry is top-notch. I just have to ask, do you have any suggestions on getting into the game industry? I am currently enrolled at ITT Tech getting a bachelor's degree in Game Design, but I would love to hear it from the words of an expert.

I'm 17 years old. King's Quest is one of my favorite series of all time.

Thank You.

For Loring Mandel: Wow! Although it isn't recent, I have seen nothing better than Branagh, Tucci and Firth performing your script for Conspiracy. I was searching on Amazon for the author of Conspiracy because I couldn't, momentarily, think of anything better I would like to read than something by the author of that movie. However, I found very little. Amazing. You must get busy. Time is of the essence. Thank you. Carol, glass artist in Maryland

Mr. Mandel,

I am a science fiction and fantasy author who played all of the old Sierra On-line games while growing up. At one point, I tried to major in computer science and did well in the programming classes, but I performed miserably in the Calculus and upper science courses, etc. Therefore, I changed majors to English and, relatively soon after graduating, published a science fiction story "" in "Parsec," an article on the former child actor David Henesy of "Dark Shadows" in "Filmfax" (you are probably aware of that gothic soap opera series from the late 60's and early 70's that was an influence on Stephen King and Anne Rice according to some sources), a very limited edition Oz novel by the late March Laumer's The Vanitas Press, and poems, essays, and articles in numerous sources. I have also self-published a book, _Cycling the Moon and The Darker Side of the Moon: Book I and III of the Greenmyn Moon Serialization_, as an on-demand trade paper-back through

I have been thinking about turning my work into adventure games for quite some time and would like to discuss this with you.

Thank you.
