Thank you for the most generous space allowed the late John Dixon in yesterday's newspaper.
Whilst I understand your need to edit some sections, I was disappointed that your included material that was not in my submission, given that my writings had been approved by John's family. John was always embarrassed by his artistic contribution to Biggles (as well as his Catman stories run by Frew), mostly because they were properties owned by others at a time he was seeking to strike out on his own. It was the reason I wrote: "Although he worked on other characters...." Still, I can see that that information would be of interest to the general public. However, from a historical perspective, they were done earlier in his career (before Air Hawk); your editing gives the impression they were done later in his life. Perhaps I should have asked for your final copy pre-publication?
I acknowledge that I am the publisher of "John Dixon's Air Hawk Magazine" from 1988 to 1990, but I am also -- more recently -- the publisher of two books on John Dixon and Air Hawk (2011 and 2013), with a third planned later this year. I'll send you one when it's published, if you'd like; lest you feel I harbour any resentment.
