I just read what Dash wrote about my outfit--it was brown eyeliner!! He's soooo catty!
And it is a proven fact that cell phones stop inertia--cars cannot hit yuppies talking on them. I've seen it.

Have fun at noir con!

I know about being a black sheep. I'm a black sheep among crazy people. How out of bounds is that?

Hey Carole: Switch isn't available in the U.S. yet — even though the story is set in Portland, Oregon. It just launched in trade paperback in Australia and will arrive in mass-market paperback in the UK in July and in Germany in August. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I land a U.S. and Canadian publisher in the New Year. It would be nice to see it in a bookstore on a continent where I live ;-)

That's why I always site behind refractive windows and have three doubles to confuse the competition...

Ah, but Teel, he is a man among boys. A rare gem that one. Glad to call him friend I be. Freaks are always more entertaining when viewed through altered eyes. ;-) I'd rather see freaks than suburban house wives. :-(

YES MAMAM! *salutes*
(brillo works best to get that Teel image out your brain) :-D

And thanks. :-)

The Courageous One.

Ah, Blondes, they tend to like my company. :-) And blondes can do highlights, depending on what type? Strawberry, dirty, plain, except platinum...hmm..

Over the knee's too Hollywierd, gotta go more stealth. Like shin-high tight around the calf boots, hidden under a pair of black straight legged jeans.

Yes, me and Teel will out there at the con, pimping our wares. Him in a fishnet belly shirt and fedora, sporting crotch-high cut up jean shorts and Freddy Mercury eyeliner, while I'm in white ankle-length fur with spackled-on mascara, smoking a long thin cigarillo. A rough looking broad-shouldered latina missing her front teeth, in a lime green El rumbles up to the corner, reaching over the passenger side seat, winding her window down. The smell of cerveza and weed flowing.

Teel shimmies up to the window, bent fully over from the waist, half his body inside the car.

(hahahahaha, god what an image of Teel. :-P)

Yup, we'll be selling ourselves and my anthology (as imaged) at a con.

I got to speak to Mickey on two occassions and still have his number. Friend of a friend intro'd me so I could drop him a line. Short conversation, though from y understanding that was the way he was, but he was definitely cool.

Doesn't Max look like the fifth beatle? :-D

Mickey was one of my influences, out of 4.

Good, good. Oh the subtle hostilityof a woman with a semi-automatic and a clip to spare *sigh*. Ya make the woman's right movement so proud I tell ya. A light rouge, kevlar body suit, and a flat heel goes well with semi-autos. Stilletos will break under the recoil. :-D Don't forget about highlights, it all the rage with Molls such as yourself.

If you like Spillane, shoot on over to my site and read the tribute I wrote back when he passed. Good guy, and a true throwback to an era long lost.
:-( (though some parts of that era......are better off lost) :-/

Okay--so violence is its own reward:).
Or so I'm finding with my stuff.
I just try not to shoot blanks...

rittin? Darn, but that be hard! Wordz iz tuff.
So top ten things to say to the guy pointing the gun at your face...
At 4:17am on December 5, 2008, Teel James Glenn said…
"Are you thinking now that you SHOULD have paid me on time?
"A shame you finished paying off that bridgework."
"Don't I know you from some where?"
"Oh, please, don't whimper, it'll give me nightmares."
"The women I am saving from that look--if they only knew."
"You gotta ask yourself--oh hell, you finish it."
"Splink zoing dorf--and you'll never know what that means!"
"Left eye or right?"

And the number one thing to say before you shoot someone in the face:
"You better hope I remembered to load this or I'll have to beat you to death."

Ah, Bill, he's a friend of a friend who've I've spoken to on occassion. Good man, Great writer. He's the writer for the Nameless Detective series which I highly reccomend, & the longest running PI character ever! Been scribing Nameless since the mid-70's I believe. Hardboiled is somewhere on my shelf (or in a box as the case, cleared my living space out for a nice new desk). :-)

Ah , Brett Halliday. Located an original anthology with his work. I live on the light side of planet pulp that stands for, ADVENTURE, ACTION & REALLY TOUGH GUYS!!!!! *cue flapping scarf, smile-bright teeth, and theme song to Indiana Jones, and leather flight jacket*. :-)

'Be honored. I steal my friend's names all the time. Its old Scots Gaelic. I've seen it as a last name (John Wesley Harden had a lawyer named John Teel).
I've also seen it as a last name Tiel.
Just have me brought to Justice (if I'm not the cop):)

About forty degrees here but the hot tub is warmer:).

Wow, someone that acknowledges the existence of Carroll John Daly, who are you, and what planet you drop off of? :-D

Jaundice is just another way of saying 'golden california sunlight' ain't it?
