Just thought I'd let you all know there's a very interesting article in the Los Angeles Review of Books this morning. John Banville/Benjamin Black is interviewed by Jon Wiener. While I'm not a fan of…Continue

The WSJ has a very good and perhaps provocative article about popular culture, Elmore Leonard, and some TV series. Some will agree with the premise; others might be pig-biting mad. But a good read.…Continue

Folks, I’ve been off-line for a while working on the third book in a series. But I’d like to present a question. By background, I was interviewed recently for Open Book Toronto. The interview wasn’t…Continue

Good morning. I haven't been posting much -- not at all, actually -- lately for two simple reasons: finishing book and art projects and travelling, and frankly there isn't much going on on the site beyond self-promo and book reviews.

I’ve been away from the site for a while, finishing a couple of projects. (No, I won’t use this to self-promote; the next book is the next book … we all have one. The tone of this thread is too vapid and foolish and depressing to use as a marketing tool.)
Having been asked the question…Continue

Folks I'm sure all you sharp crime writers/readers on the site are too smart to be fooled, but just in case ... the spamming of the site by "Pauline Atta" of Thailand is of course spam. This individual has been deleted/banned from several sites. The thought is this individual is involved in either a money transfer scam or is trolling for a husband. A quick Google tells the tale. Just FYi. Lee
