Book Review: 52 WEEKS & 52 WESTERN NOVELS

Posted by / in Book Reviews / 2 comments

52 WEEKS & 52 WESTERN NOVELS edited by Scott Harris & Paul Bishop. First, I have to admit a bias. The coauthor of this book, Paul Bishop, is an old friend of mine and many of the authors profiled, and the contributors who wrote about them, are my friends, too. Also  one of the books […]

Cheesecake

Posted by / in The Writing Life / 2 comments

Here’s the main title sequence for SABLE, an awful series that only lasted for a month in 1988. William Rabkin & I wrote an awful freelance script for this awful series that thankfully wasn’t shot — but it had a lasting impact on us. The show had a terrible, expository character, an African-American tech wizard […]

A Brash Birthday

Posted by / in Me Me Me / 2 comments

Three years ago this week, Joel Goldman and I launched our publishing company Brash Books with thirty titles, all of them acclaimed, award-winning books that had fallen out of print…and that we brought back in new print and digital editions. Our mission was cocky and ambitious: to publish the best crime novels in existence. We believe […]

My Strange Encounter With Shelley Berman

Posted by / in In the Trades Today / 8 comments

Comedian Shelley Berman died yesterday. I never worked with him but we did spend an afternoon together. Six years ago, I was having my car repaired at MBZ Motors in a dreary corner of the San Fernando Valley. I can’t remember why, but I was stuck there all day while the work was being done. […]

DVD Reviews: DECOY and CORONET BLUE

Posted by / in TV Shows on DVD / 2 comments

Two short-lived, NY-based crime shows have finally come out on DVD…and they are both gems. DECOY stars Beverly Garland as police woman Casey Jones and was the first TV series to shoot on location in New York. It was also the first series to feature a police woman in the lead role. All 39 episodes […]

The Mail I Get – Long Overdue Monk Edition

Posted by / in Monk Books, The Mail I Get / 7 comments

I’ve been getting lots of questions about my MONK series. Here are just a few of them. Hi Lee, quick question about the Monk books. I know they’re stand-alones, but did you intend for the characters to have gradual progressions from book 1 to book 15, which wouldn’t necessarily require the reader to read them […]

The Mail I Get – Scammers Edition

Posted by / in Scams, Self Publishing, The Mail I Get / 3 comments

Even in this age of easy self-publishing, the scammers are still out there… and there are still plenty of suckers. I recently ran into an author who not only “published” his book through Authorhouse, he also paid them extra to buy positive reviews for him in the worthless “self-published books” versions of Publishers Weekly and […]

Book Review: Two Masters at Work

Posted by / in Book Reviews / 2 comments

Little White Lies By Ace Atkins. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again… Ace Atkins is writing better Spenser novels now than the last few that Robert B. Parker wrote before his death. Not only does Atkins perfectly channel Robert B. Parker’s voice, without slipping into satire or pastiche, he also matches Parker at his best […]
