Haven't seen it yet, but we can usually get anything we want with a request to the publisher. I see the U.S. release date is Feb. 2 -- usually the same in Canada, or very close. I'd love to be able to read it in time to review for my next column, which will appear Saturday, Feb. 13. I'll speak to our Books Editor about getting a copy from Holt. cheers, js

Roger, I've been offered a chance to be e-published in Uk, you've been around the writing business a while, what do you think of it?

Just finished MIXED BLOOD and loved, loved, LOVED it. Wow. Talk about a book that resonates long after it's over. Well done!

Hi Roger, I'll add that movie rights bit to the blog later this week. Hope to see you here in the states sometime, too.

I don't think you get much cooler than Robert Mitchum. There's a photo of him from around then where he's wearing a suit but paddling in the sea, it's a great shot. I have to dash I was cooking dinner, now I'm just burning it, A x

Well I quite like her! She had great movie posters too. Given my line of work perhaps I should aim to be more like a crime writer and less like a dead actress! Who do you fancy being today?

I think I don't have the wit for Harlow or the assets for Van Doren. Can I be Veronica Lake for today? That would be flettery!

Hi Roger,

sorry I was so slow at responding to your 'add', I wasn't being rude! All the best, Alison

Hi Roger, I'm in Chicago and I think our state government can compete with South Africa. Good luck with Mixed Blood! :)

Hey Roger, It seems McGuane spends most of his time raising Quarter Horses and fishing. I loved that whole Montana group of writers, Crumley, McGuane, and Jim Harrison. It's a shame about Westlake. Have you read the Stark novels with Alan Grofield as the main character? The booze got a hold of me pretty good. I somehow managed to break away. I read an autobiography that centers around England, Ireland, and drinking that as good a book as I've ever read; 'The Grass Arena' by John Healy. I hope you can find it although I think it's being reprinted this year. Congrats on your book, I'll be grabbing a copy in March. Good luck!

Roger -- Thanks for the invite, and for being the first to comment. We do seem to have similar taste in authors. Best of luck with your debut thriller, which I look forward to reading.

By the way, I'm also a fan of The Big Lebowski. Here in the U.S., that movie has acquired quite a cult following. There are actually Lebowski Fests in several cities, where attendees dress up as the Dude, Walter and even the Nihilists!

You can get my new book (SQUID PULP BLUES, a collection of 3 bizarro-crime fiction novellas) at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. But if you send me your address, I'll send you a copy as a gift.


Btw, what are your favorite Thompson / Leonard / Stark books??

Thanks for your comments on my blog and the music. Clearly, I'm heavily into the lounge/swing/standards scene. Both my wife and I enjoy it.

I am looking forward to reading Mixed Blood when it hits the American book stores. It sounds like my kind of story.

"Cheers"
Bish

Thanks, Roger, glad you liked the blog. And congrats on the US publication of MIXED BLOOD. It looks like something that'll be finding its way onto my TBR list.

Roger, thanks, and congrats with your own book. Holt's a top publisher here in the states. Btw. The South Africa paper, The Citizen gave my latest, Small Crimes, a nice review.

Nice to meet you. Congrats on the upcoming book!

Thanks for the comment. Yeah, Stark, Leonard and Thompson are excellent. It's always nice to find someone with good taste : )

looking forward to reading your book
