Dan to appear in Kafuka Asagiri's manga Bungō Stray Dogs

When asked to participate, Brown responded, "I've always wanted to be Mangafied."

brown_mangaTHUMB2 Dan will appear in Kafuka Asagiri's manga Bungō Stray Dogs (Literary Stray Dogs). "The 'battle action' story centers around a league of literary figures with supernatural powers. Together, these writers solve mysteries as part of the 'Armed Detective Agency.'

Brown himself will have the power of 'Inferno' — the ability to compose a three-line poem that offers a glimpse of 'hell.' The 'hell' is actually a reflection of what the real world would be like, 33 minutes from now, so anyone who can decipher the poem can predict the future. Unfortunately, 'only Brown himself has the historical and religious knowledge to decipher the poems.'"

When the manga's publishing team asked Brown to be a part of their project, he agreed, saying: "I've always wanted to be Mangafied."

The New York Times sits down with Dan to talk about his favorite books, characters, and writers throughout literature.

"For me, a good thriller must teach me something about the real world. Thrillers like “Coma,” “The Hunt for Red October” and “The Firm” all captivated me by providing glimpses into realms about which I knew very little — medical science, submarine technology and the law. To my taste, a great thriller must also contain at its core a thought-provoking ethical debate or moral dilemma."

Huffington Post's Gary Jansen asserts 9 reasons why Dan Brown makes a difference in the world. He writes, "what Brown does in a way that appeals to millions of people around the world is tell stories that remind us there's more to the world than meets the eye. His books--filled with history, intrigue, secret codes, and symbols embedded in paintings, books, churches, monuments, and government buildings--suggest that the things we take for granted are imbued with hidden meaning. A painting may not just be a painting...and the façade on a building may be more than a simple decoration."
