Great new book from pulp reprint masters Black Dog Books

Tom Roberts' great imprint Black Dog Books has released an excellent new collection, Dead Man's Brand. It contains the western short stories of pulp master Norbert Davis (1909-1949), who is usually known for his detective stories. I was proud to add a blurb to this book -Davis was a heck of a writer. You should check it out. In fact, if you love Depression-era pulp fiction like I do, you'll find this publisher to be a treasure trove. I'm currently in the middle of Unmasked, which contains the earliest adventures of the Lone Ranger, Zorro, the Cisco Kid and Hopalong Cassidy. Great stuff.

New interview is up

I have an interview up, mostly about my crime fiction, on the website of author Nigel Bird:

Bird's site, Sea Minor, includes a series called "Dancing with Myself" in which invited authors interview themselves -Lawrence Block, among others, has participated. I was delighted to get this fresh exposure from a writer who is fast making a name for himself.
