Yeah! I love this title too. And there are real jewels in this book, especially Charles Beamont's (who wrote lots of screenplays for the Twilight Zone) and Davis Grubb's... That's the first stories that gave J.-P. the idea of the book, then he asked authors to write for the book, including some profesional, pretty famous musicians.
[Just got your comment on the blog: I had great fun composing the playlist. Actually, I listed almost all the titles mentionned in the book and searched them on Deezer.]
About your book, if you ever finish it and want to tell me more, please send me an email (, I'd be delighted to read it!

Yes, we published Jazz Me Blues in April 2008, and as usual Jean-Paul made a great work. You can check it on Moisson rouge's blog (I made a sountrack of the book:
What about your work? Have you something out?
And yeah, this Spanish festival is THE event not to be missed. Fabulous atmosphere and excellent authors. I'll try to write a daily post on MR's blog about it.

Hi Chris, here's my new avatar on Crimespace (couldn't log in with the previous one). If I'm not wrong—or tell me if I am—you were part of the anthology made by Jean-Paul Gratias about Sherlock Holmes... I saw you're a fan of Jim Thompson too: good point! Let's br crimefriends.

Wow, this is a good profile. I think people should check out his blog - looks a clever, informed chap. I am impartial in this, naturally.
