Thank God for the internet.

It is possible to network without seeing people face to face, and possible to have rational long-range conversations abgut books and writing.

Looking at your reading list, I suggest you give Cormac McCarthy a try. He's as dark as they get and with a terrific style that most likely will never be successfully emulated.

Try his short one, THE ROAD, about a man and his son traversing a post appocolipytic world, or NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN. For the first 90 percent of the book the action is as packed as a book can get, and for the last 40 pages, mellows out to an explanation of why the USA is no country for old men.

There is not a lot of action in the long denouement, but the writing is so compelling, you can't stop reading.
