<<Didn't someone recently say Get Carter was being remade by Steven
Soderbergh? I couldn't find any info from imdb.com, which does list a couple
of his
upcoming projects. Does anyone have confirmation of this?>>

I'm the one who put forard the 'news' of the remake. My information came from
some time ago, and that's a long time in Hollywood, so anything may have
happened. I believe it was also to be retitled.

The film rights to several other Lewis books have been sold, including Plender
to a French film company.

Several people asked about an article on Lewis appearing elsewhere other than
in Crime Time. That'd be Brit Grit by John Williams, in Arena (Winter, 1992).
The article is about 1000 words long and includes some bad mouthing from
former editors - it plays up the 'hard man' image of the novels. Lewis was
also featured in the July 1969 issue of Fashion, before Jack's Return Home was
published, in their People Going Places section.
