RARA-AVIS: A Different John Wooley (Re: Hardboiled?)

From: kip.stratton@ni.com

No, it is a different John Wooley. The John Wooley in question here is a writer for the TULSA WORLD and a long-time fan and expert on hard-boiled writing and pulp culture in general. And a hell of a good guy. He and I went to college together a long time ago, and it was he who opened a lot of doors for me when he gave me a paperback of FAREWELL, MY LOVELY with the simple instructions: Read it. John's collaborated with Ron Wolfe on a couple of pretty interesting neo-pulp sorts of novels. Here's an interview with him at amazon.com.
