Sorry, I haven't been around here enough to know if this will be (1) a worn out subject, or (2) of interest. Nevertheless:Are there any other frustrated James Ellroy fans out there? If so, what are…Continue

Iain Ryan – hot tip for fans of James Ellroy

Hi Guys:If you've read my previous posts, you'll know I'm a huge James Ellroy fan. You'll also have noticed that I've been disappointed by Ellroy's recent work. Anyway, I've discovered a new author who takes a lot from Ellroy, but whose work I've enjoyed it FAR more than Ellroy's recent output. I recommend checking it out (!) and if you do so, you'll be helping a new author who really needs all the readers (and all the publicity) he can get. To that end, please review the books on Amazon if you…See More

"I made it a personal point of honor to get through The Cold Six Thousand. Among my least enjoyable reading experiences. It was my first Ellroy, so I'll take part of the blame for that. I enjoyed Blood's a Rover a lot, and…"

James Ellroy Frustration

Sorry, I haven't been around here enough to know if this will be (1) a worn out subject, or (2) of interest. Nevertheless:Are there any other frustrated James Ellroy fans out there? If so, what are your thoughts? What consolation or advice can you offer?Basically, L.A. Confidential, White Jazz and American Tabloid of three of my all time favourite novels. I read crime fiction widely, but struggle to find anything that (for me, given my taste) can compare. And, bottom line, I find myself unable…See More

"Thanks all. I've read Lawrence Block, but none of the others. Evanovich and this Tucher guy both look like an interesting change for me, so I'll definitely give them a try. Dana, yes, you're right, I need to make time for some…"

Albert Tucher replied to James Buckley's discussion New York Voice
"Brad Parks is very good on Newark. And there's this guy Albert Tucher, who has lived in central Jersey since 1955 and has a Jersey girl protagonist named Diana Andrews. The novella THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE is her latest case. (Sorry, but if you…"

"I'd recommend TV and movies if it's the voice you're looking for. Get the sound in your head and it will come across as much more organic on the page. There is no shortage of NY-NJ characters you can listen to."

J. E. Seymour replied to James Buckley's discussion New York Voice
"Well... Janet Evanovich writes about New Jersey, and does a great job with it.  It's a completely different kind of book, but the voice is good.  Lawrence Block sets his Scudder books in NYC.  There's also Small Town (by…"

New York Voice

Hi there:My work in progress will include a POV character from the New York / New Jersey area (more New Jersey). I will be writing a close 3rd-person-limited POV and I want to bring as much "authentic New Jersey" as possible into the narrative and dialogue.Any general advice on this would be greatly appreciated, but specifically here I am hunting for novels that will guide me towards the right kind of voice. For example, I'm a fan of Charlie Huston's Hank Thompson books so I'll probably try his…See More
