read the "hiero" books in my teens and was wraped.both books were lost in the following years and i have only recently re-aquired them.
ive always wondered if there is a No 3 and, after finding this site and reading the books again, i can only hope that someone is offered the opportunity to use what Mr Lanier had written to finish a fantastic story.
i bet it would be a best seller!

No worries. Cute and fuzzy won't be any part of my script!

Are you writing the script on spec?
Please try to avoid making the Klootz and Gorm"cute". Hollywood always does that to its profound detriment. HJ is not a children's book despite the lack of sex and extreme violence.

Below is an excerpt from bad translation of a German web posting.
STERLING E. LANIER
...Also as sculptors it had successes and was represented on some exhibitions. (1927)

Re the query of the Sculpteres at the Smithsonian, in a postscript to one of the Lanier books I read it mentioned that he had exhibited at this Institute, so looks probable.

Can anyone cofirm to me that this Sterling lanier, the author, is the same Lanier who created a series of small miniature bronze sculptures of prehistoric animals for the Smithsonian Museum back in the late 1950's, early 1960's. I am trying to confirm this information for a book I am writing about Dinosaur collectibles.

I'm adapting Hiero's Journey as a screenplay! Follow my progress on my blog.

I remember reading an interview by an author who was a friend of Sterling Lanier (can't remeber who, but it was published on the web). He had outlined a 3rd book and had started writing it and then suffered a stroke (could have been an accident). He is still concious, but is unable to remember what he did the the work and is unable to write any longer. The only real hope is that when he finally passes, someone will find the work and complete it. Sad to hope for the death of a favorite author

I first picked up Hiero's Jouney in 1974 in a used bookstore in Torremolinos, Spain. I was more than hooked, I was addicted! In a way it's ironic that I'm typing this from my laptop on my dining room table!
What would Hiero think?
I long for the third book, please don't leavethis story as a cliff hanger.

Dear Mr. Lanier. I'm still waiting for the conclusion of your Hiero series. It's a really interesting series and I would jump on the last book if you will just write it before we both die!
