Thanks for stopping by my message board Gordon. David Corbett is a friend of mine, and one heck of a writer, so I hope we will have another chance to talk with him soon. Currently, "Behind the Black Mask" is booked through fall, but we may find a way to work him in.
Hi Shannon - Thanks for the invite, I'm much obliged ... any purveyor of Chandleresque fiction is a friend of mine. Not to mention Kazantzakis ... As for 'the dark love child of Cain and Thompson' ... sounds damn fine by me. If you want to wander over to Crime Always Pays and drop the opening paragraph on us, with a link (?) to the first chapter, we'd be glad to give it a plug. Cheers, Dec
Well I there and thanks! It's nice to meet you! We share so many tastes on books and things and trying to launch! I'm still working on my rocket though! But no one gets anywhere without trying (and then succeeding)!
Thanks Megan. As I listened back to that episode, I felt like maybe I was a bit too enthusiastic about the film. But compared to most neo-noir, it really is great. I'm glad you found the new noir categories useful. Truth told, I just needed them so I could keep track of what I was saying. Thanks for "stopping by."
Hey, Shannon--Just listened to your fabulous HOLLYWOODLAND episode--filled with gems. I love what you say about the 1950s as a decade pulling a hoax on itself....and your proposed noir category reorganization is superb (noir style, faux noir, neo noir)...
Hi Tribe. Thanks for stopping by my chatterwall (I'm still not used to saying things like that). We've always appreciated your support of the podcasts. Hope our link to your blog has driven a few people your way. You write one of the best blogs out there, bar none.
