Been a hell of a Fall

Sorry not to have been here almost for all of the Fall. Been too stressful, with everything flying in air at the same time - and I literally mean it. (Umm, no, not the things flying in the air part... That hasn't happened. Yet. We'll keep our fingers crossed.)

The paperback line was delayed, but Duane's and Al's books are coming out in March and April. Kevin Wignall's Who Is Conrad Hirst? (which is one of the best thrillers I've ever read) should follow in June. Then come James… Continue

Editing the translation

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… Continue

And now in Sweden

I posted more stuff on Nordic private eyes, this time with the help of Anders Engwall, who's the premiere hardboiled aficionado in Sweden. Here's his lengthy comment:

Current readings

After having finished editing my porn book and writing another one (both, sadly (?), non-fiction), I've been reading Bill Granger's Schism from 1981. It's one of his Devereaux spy novels. I'm not big on spy novels, but I find myself liking this very much. It's about a Vatican spy that worked as a missionary in Vietnam and Laos in the fifties, disappeared and gets back around 1980. CIA, Vatican and other people are of course interested in him and Devereaux is hired to find out what the man… Continue

Hi Juri,

No, I didn't get the e-mail. Try sandraruttan @gmail .com (without the spaces) and see if that works.

Juri, I honestly don't know what the date of that piece was. Tribe had to send me a copy because I no longer had one and he did that a month or so ago.

I feel I should almost apologize for lightening up your recent reading, considering your blog posts above! I mean, those stories are dark, but not the same shade of black as Hard Man (which I loved) etc.

It's a cover for a seventies Finnish crime digest. Probably the ugliest and stupidest cover I've ever seen.
