  1. How can I get in contact with Allan Folsom or his agent /publicist?

    I am a British actor interested in The Day After Tomorrow in a feature film context.

    Who can I call or write to?

    Cheers,

    I just read Machiavelli Covenant. Not a bad story but the foreign languages are so mangled. Please, Allan, get an editor who knows French and Spanish at least.

    While I enjoyed Folsom’s books, I was appalled by the horrendous, word-by-word, literal translations from the Spanish in this book. As a native Spanish speaker, I found that they were so outrageous and incorrect that some were downright laughable! Is there a way to write to Allan Folsom directly? I really would like to comment on these translations directly and encourage him, by all means, to consult a native Speaker before publishing.

    I have read the Day After Tomorrow, The Day of Confession, and am currently in the midst of The Exile. I was wondering if Folsom had a website to join or something of that nature. I really appreciate his work, and would love to know when he planned on making more books.

    I have read all Allan Folsom’s books and I cannot wait for the next one to come out. Does any one have any idea when his next book is coming out, its really been long. Whats his official website?

    Allan–
    When will “The Day After Tomorrow” become a film???
    I have read it 4 times–(never happend before)
    The 4th time was to try and figure out why I liked it so much.
    I remember reading many, many years ago (1997???) that the rights to the movie had been sold —
    So who has the rights and will there ever be a movie???
    Thank you for writing this fabulous book.
    Best Regards,
    Cole Mulcahy

    I just finished the Machiavelli Covenant and part way through I had very stong impressions that I had seen a movie on TV that at least very closely mirrored the book and would love to see it again. Am I crazy? If there is a way to get the video or at least the title of the movie I would appreciate getting the information. I too would love to see The Day After Tomorrow made into a film and was so very disappointed when the movie with the same title was not based on the really exciting read by Allan Folsom. I am now hooked and will need to catch up with the other books now. Thank you.

    I have been a fan since your first book, and have always waited patiently for a new one to come out. I just finished The Hadrian Memorandum – and have to tell you whoever did your editing should be shot! I have never seen so many errors in writing a book, and I have read plenty of them. Words spelled wrong, grammatical errors, missing words, duplicate words – instead of wondering what would happen next in the story line I was wondering when I would come upon another error in writing. Very disappointing.

  9. Jane says:

    As a former Spanish instructor, I cannot believe the numerous mistakes made by the author in The Machiavelli Covenant. A bilingual translator needs to be employed to assure that the Spanish content will be correct! I have laughed and laughed at page 244 when he writes “Mosca encima”. For those that so not speak Spanish, it means “a house fly at the top”, not “fly over”.
