More books...

I just finished 2 more from the Hard Case Crime series;

Shooting Star by Robert Bloch is a good natured and witty tale of Hardboiled Hollywood. A great read.

I didn't find the chatter very interesting or useful and for the most part, the participants come across as a bunch of f'in blowhards. They have a lot of people on the list but I think the majority are afraid of commenting for fear of getting the verbal equivalent to a forearm smash to the head if they say the wrong thing. There are the exceptions and occasional gems that come your way like Allan Guthrie's… Continue

Made some changes to my Librarything page. Found a vintage paperback copy of Anatomy of a Murder at a yard sale. TVO'd Nightmare Alley which is playing on the Retro Channel. Off to work.

And my daughter is wearing raingear in Oregon! So are the beagles :o) Thanks for accepting my friend request. Hope the heat breaks for you soon, so Rocky can be "Joe Cool".

Hey Paul, greetings from the Illinois prairie. I take it Rocky is the photogenic pup in the picture. Book sleuthing sounds like a great thing. Welcome aboard!

I don't think so. It was painted on a truck at a tattoo expo in Los Angeles and I don't recall any Iron Maiden anything around at the time.
