| BRC: What can you tell us about FIREBREAK, the next Parker novel to
| be published under your Richard Stark pseudonym?
| DW: A firebreak is a small fire set in front of a big fire, to stop
| the big fire by robbing it of fuel. I wanted to adapt that idea, by
| having people commit a small robbery, in the course of which they
| discover, but don't get, something much more valuable. But the small
| robbery, by forcing an upgrade of defensive systems, makes the big
| robbery that much harder, or perhaps impossible. I also wanted Parker to
| operate in the Internet age without losing being Parker. He's always
| operated in the world without really being with the world, and
| cyberspace means that the rest of us are more and more living the same
| way.
