 Haywood is a scoundrel and has no sense of decency.  His shameless exploitation of a tragic and premature death, hinting at the Prieure de Sion's murder of Patrick Litchfield will not soon be forgiven.

Well the treacle may have stopped flowing as time draws on, but is this party over?

Sorry, no can do on a POS Badge...

However you may consider the finer offerings of the 'Ancient and Grand Order of Rodentia'

They can nock up a parchment or two at the 'Dropping' of a hat and also do a nice sideline of emblazoned tea cosies (which the sleeping dormice are particularly fond of).

 Mort, It's hard cheese about the badges.  I assume you're currently playing "Ben" to your murid friends as a tribute to the latest, tragic Monarchic victim of Project MKUltra?

Hi Guys!

Roger - to be fair to Haywood, there's an email in the Dossiers in which it appears (to me, at least) that Haywood didn't suggest or encourage the comments that were later circulated (or implied) about Litchfield's death. I'll discuss with you privately...

Hey Mort! - I wonder if the Ancient and Grand Order of Rodentia has any connection to the Exalted Order of the Furry Thingy? Furthermore, could this be the source of the true meridianic (I think I just made that word up) origin of locations such as Rhodes and Rodez - to secretly designate the hyper-dimensional mousehole coordinates to initiates?!

W - all I can say is... avoid the Artichokes at all costs!

 ... there are many sites describing the various "project" experiments on furry animals.  Could the Ancient and Grand Order be a self-help group for survivors?  There are also stories that lab technicians no longer use rats and mice for their experiments.  Instead they use lawyers and investment bankers because the technicians become less attached to them.

BTW I like artichokes, especially the ones imported from Manchuria.

So, essentially, this exercise simply confirms what was already obvious from viewing "Bloodline" - that this Nic Haywood character is nothing more than an opportunist who's read the same silly genre books we've all read.  And, as usual, all roads (or should that be "Rhodes"?) lead to Watkins Books.  I don't think I'd need three guesses to properly identify Haywood's correspondent in this e-mail exchange.  Are his initials "R.H." by any chance? 

StellaMaris 7/6/2009 2:26:32 AM

Yep. Having been part of the Watkins scenario in the 90s, I'm aware of the whole convoluted backstory, although I didn't know Haywood's exact name until Bloodline came out. In fact, I actually thought it was a pseudo when I first heard it, so I was surprised that it was confirmed. 

So, what I find interesting, if it's really true, is that his involvement traces back to old Geoffrey's coterie. In other words, he's been around for a while. Baigent doesn't really remember him, though, which is also interesting.

 In any case, having watched the clips of Haywood's "performance art" turns in the "Bloodline" film, I found them so devoid of substance and of such lack of interest, that I found my mind wandering obsessively to musings on the numerous possible activities that might account for those very obvious rug burns on his chin...  

ProfessorW 7/6/2009 1:45:24 PM

 I can't imagine what caused the chin damage, but I do think Mr H would make a very good Hollywood villain a la Steven Berkoff: he's mysterious, he's British, he smokes (ach!) and he's so fiendishly clever at parrying the brilliantly incisive questions of the director, eg: 

Q: Would the body of evidence held by Zion (definitely pronounced with a "z") be incontrovertible?

A: Yes.  Incontrovertible.

A true master swordsman at work.  One wonders what occurred during the numerous cuts in the interview.  I always imagined that there were fits of giggles which might have spoilt the sombre tone...

Hi there.   Am new to this mystery.  Fascinating stuff tho.  Been out of country for a while (USA) and have just returned and caught onto this.   Need to ask questions to save me trawling through endless hours of internet.   Reading the comments I am intrigued as to why all roads lead to Watkins.  Have looked up Watkins Bookshop on internet, but cant get anything.  Can you answer????

Also in relation to Nic Haywood I find one of the comments refers to the correspondent with Mr Haywood as R>H>   Can you verify who RH is please.

Also has anyone else found anything more out about Mr. Haywood.  All information would be greatly greatly appreciated.  Thanks
