A Few Quick Links to My Work Online

I've focused on print for the past two years, so that's where a majority of my work is, but I still have a bit of an internet presence.  Some people asked me for links, so here they are:

Hello CrimeSpace

Nice place you've got here. 

I like the antique electric-chair collection. 

Mind if I look around a little bit?

Glad to hear it. Good luck. What is Bill Thompson doing these days? Is he a consultant-editor or something like that?

Thanks for the invite, Bernard. Did you know THE WIRE was almost filmed in Philadelphia? After either Season 1 or 2, Baltimore's mayor was unhappy with how the city was depicted and threatened to withdraw the permits to film. David Simon said fine, we can our cameras and money to Philadelphia. When O'Malley heard Phully would just be a stand-in for Baltimore (can't really expect people to believe all those cops and slingers and fiends just up and moved to Philly en masse, right?) he relented.


I read that in an interview with Simon, so i'm taking it as a true story.

No.  Never heard of Lone Wolf and Cub.  I have a mix of covers: three publishers and my own designs for the HOLLOW REED trilogy. You probably refer to the Penguin editions.  They are the most colorful.  Alas, they will not continue.
