I come from Pyrenees in South-West in France. I saw Sir Christopher Lee near my home at 5 kms... in Arreau where he has been in THE PASSAGE. i am a french author currently writing a "heroic Fantasy" (& sword sorcery) genre book about the Metal world. It will be published at the end of 2010. The book's subject matter is inspired by and adresses and cultural codes linked to Heroic fantasy (even history) and Metal genres at large. I included interviews of lot of bands and illustrators even writers (in fantasy).
Should have any questions, contact me. i will be glad to include point of view of mister Lee !
