Wednesday Morning

Well, I finally got my comp copies of Kolchak Tales: Night Stalker of the Living Dead #1 yesterday. Unfortunately, the paper stock used seemed to cause the art to print a bit too dark, obscuring some of the details in Tim Hamilton's art, but otherwise, I'm pretty happy with how it all turned out. Hopefully it's doing well.

I also received the two Ken Clark spy DVDs I wrote about on Monday. Once again, the discs showed up in about three days. You know, I'm not wondering why my orders from Dorado Films get here so fast – no, I'm wondering why my orders from everyone else take so long! (By the way, I watched them both last night. I wasn't disappointed. Good stuff.)

Speaking of other orders, I just ordered the new Richard Stark novel, Dirty Money, from Amazon. I'm a huge fan of the Parker series, and this book apparently wraps up the storyline that began in Nobody Runs Forever and continued in Ask The Parrot. Can't wait to read it!

I also decided to pick up the novels The Wheelman and The Blonde by Duane Swierczynski. Craig recommended The Wheelman to me long ago, and I'd had both books on my Amazon Wish List forever, so I finally decided to give Swierczynski a try.

Well, that's enough for now. I'm hittin' the hay.

Glad the Kolchak book turned out decently. Sorry I haven't been around. School has been kicking my butt.

Craig Zablo said...

Congrats on Kolchak coming out. Can't wait to read your reviews of Wheelman and The Blonde.

Craig: Kolchak came out a month ago, but Moonstone'ss low sending out comps. Issue #2 should be out in a few weeks.

Haven't read The Wheelman, but The Blonde was good.

I'm looking forward to that new Parker novel, too.
