Again, sorry for the absence. I've been swamped with work for two months and haven't really had the time to do any side stuff.

I'm editing the Finnish translation (my own) of Duane Swierczynski's The Wheelman. The translation will be out in October and will start a new paperback line I'll be editing - handpicking the best of the new hardboiled and noir. Al Guthrie's Kiss Her Goodbye will be the next novel in the series. Arrangements have been made for another three novels.

The books will have illustrated covers, like Hard Case Crime. I'll be posting the illos in the photos section. The art is done by a young Finnish guy called Ossi Hiekkala, who really knows what he's doing.

Wow - congrats Juri! That's great news - and makes me wish I spoke Finnish. Good luck- - I hope it goes well.

Fantastic. I hope things go well with the new line.

Thanks, Ray. Hopefully this thing will continue for a long time. Hardboiled has never really been big in Finland, so we'll see about this.
