> Mark Blumenthal will be your guest thememaster for:
> Sep 2001: Los Angeles (John Shannon, Raymond Chandler, Michael Connelly,
> Robert Crais, James Ellroy, Walter Mosley, Stuart M. Kaminsky,
> Roger L. Simon, William Campbell Gault, Richard S. Prather,
> Ross Macdonald)

> Jan 2002: Manuel Ramos tentatively scheduled for a month of Latino
> noir and hardboiled writing
> Having a theme for a month, where people can read any book by a particular

> related to the theme of the month and mention it on the list. All the
> regular RARA-AVIS talk goes on as well, of course.
> Suggestions for future themes include: the continuing question of
> hardboiled women writers, Barry Gifford, Patricia Highsmith, W.R. Burnett,
> Nick Tosches, politics, Los Vegas, gangster-related
books, and moral
