: For some years I have had a good idea for a great Indy adventure... or so I think. Does anyone know how to make submissions to Lucasfilm? I've tried with Dark Horse and West End Games, but none of them are longer interested in Indiana Jones. And I really wouldn't like to see this good idea sinking... anyone could help me on this?
: Besides, I'd like to contact Mr. McGregor or any other writer involved with Indiana Jones. Again if anyone could give me e-mail adresss? Thanks in advance!
A friend of mine who is a good writer, sent in a submission to Lucasfilm Ltd., addressing the cover letter to Lucy Autrey Wilson. She enclosed an outline and the first three chapters of her story. (She made sure to have the story copyrighted first before sending it in.) This is what was returned as a response:

So, as much as it would be great for everyone with a great Indiana Jones idea to have it submitted, it looks a little hopeless. I have a story also, but I'm having it done as a comic first, before I get the chance to show it to Lucasfillm Ltd.
Gullyver, I don't know what to tell you, but I can give you the address to Lucasfilm Ltd. if you email.
