Never mind Fu Manchu, what about the Manchurian Candidate? Perhaps the VMs' author was a soldier back from a distant war, troubled by a recurrent dream (in a strange alphabet?) which he had to write down to try to understand... :-)

Seriously, Manchu wouldn't have been in my top 50 language/alphabet candidates for the VMs: ATM, I would predict this will prove to be another "projective solution", where the decoder's subconscious has something important to say - perhaps some unfinished business from earlier in life, much like the main character in Mark Romanek's (excellent) mid-80s film "Static", who can hear his dead parents in the static of an untuned TV (though, naturally, no-one else can).

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
