************ After I finished THE DAMNATION OF ADAM BLESSING I surfed around the net for information on her and came up with the email address and wrote her and asked her if she would come on and she agreed. I chose the later date to give me time to read more of her books.

Most of the short online biographies don't have much to say about her before she launched her Vin Packer career, and I was hoping I might find some of that in her ME autobiography. I told her we were a surly hardboiled and noir crew, so I think she will be expecting a lot of Vin Packer questions.

I've got her Highsmith book coming, plus a couple early Gold Medals. If you have ever contemplated reading some of her books, now would be a great time, but I might also add that reading Highsmith might not be a bad idea, either. I think if anybody would have insight into her work, it would be Ms Meaker.
