Parker and Wyatt

Richard Stark's Parker and Garry Disher's Wyatt are a case of literary tribute and possibly symbiosis like none other that I know. Parker, created in 1962, is a prototypical professional, an unsentimental planner of elaborate capers who kills only when necessary but does not hesitate to kill when he must. So is Wyatt, created thirty years later.

Each is identified only by his last name. Each is harassed by the mob, which is called, in both cases,…

Hi PR,

I am aware of Detectives Beyond Borders.  I'm the Eastern Hemisphere editor of Noir Nation: an international journal of crime fiction.  First issue due out as an eBook Spetember 1.  Would you be willing to review it?  It is still a bit  US/Canada heavy; I've been trying to grow our European network and it's much slower-going than in the English speaking countries. (I"m in Prague) (Please give us a "Like" thank you)  (Please leave a comment)

I think I finally figured out to read the messages, my last accompllishment of the old year.

Thanks for the kind wished, and the same to you and to anyone else who reads this!

Hi PR, my mysteriously missing message said "Wishing you a safe New Year's Eve and a terrific 2008." :) Can't hurt to say it again!

Daniel: I received notification that you had sent me a message, but I haven't been able to find it yet. I'm still feeling my way around the site.

Ah, good. That one was mine. Cheers!

BTW, I sent you a message. Did you get it?

Daniel: One was inspired by an old blues song about a card player. If that was not yours, pass my compliments to the author!

I think the friend concept is more a way of bookmarking the people you find interesting. It doesn't mean you have to borrow each other's best dresses for hot dates or anything. Sounds like Maxine has the right approach--say yes merrily and remain eternally young. :)

Oh, and if any of those stories were mine, well, thanks!

Know what you mean about all these "friends" requests, Peter -- but as I have young children I can see it is similar to what they do on all their sites so have merrily said "yes" to all the ones I got -- we remain eternally young, heh?

Thanks. I heard about it from Maxine, or Petrona, in the UK. This is my first experience with "social networking." It was a bit unnerving to get a bunch of e-mail from people who want to be my friend, something like getting jostled by Krishnas and Jesus freaks at an airport. I'll have to figure out how this whole thing works.

I read some of the short-shorts you posted on your blog a while back, by the way. Man, some of that stuff is damned good.

Welcome aboard, Peter. I was planning on inviting you myself, but obviously word has already spread! Hope you enjoy the place.
