He may not be a household name (yet!) but Peter's name has graced the pages of more than a few articles in the mainstream press and on the web. Below are articles from newspapers, magazines, press kits and websites relating to Peter or his works. Some of them have the audacity to just mention Peter briefly instead of devoting a whole piece to him. In those cases I've bolded Peter's name so you can skip the drivel and get to the most important parts! Peter's name is also bolded in the list below for the articles that he wrote!

Many thanks go to Jana, who tracked down most of the articles pertaining to Peter's pre-Highlander work. If you happen to come across other mentions of Our Guy, drop me a line at AdamMethos@aol.com or leave a message in the Guestbook.
