I'm delighted that James Sallis month has arrived. I kicked it off by reading Difficult Lives, his study of Thompson, Goodis and Himes. It made me realize how woefully underread I am of their work. It's a nice book and it gives some background on Sallis's exposure to this genre as well.

During RA's Nineties Month I sprinted through his Lew Griffin series as quickly as I could, loving every minute of it. I'd recommend this series to any rare bird that hasn't read it yet, but advise you to read it in order.

I'd love to hear comments from anyone else who enjoys the Lew Griffin books like I do and I'll try to comment more on my favorite aspects of this series soon.
