Re: RARA-AVIS: New Charles Willeford Editions

From: JT Lindroos (
Date: 25 Oct 2004

Point Blank will reprint THE DIFFERENCE (probably the first we get out), and two oldies that have not been reprinted since their original publication, UNDERSTUDY FOR LOVE (under the original title, THE UNDERSTUDY) and LUST IS A WOMAN (as MADE IN MIAMI). Possibly as a double-edition. Also, we'll be doing NOBODY WALKS: A CHARLES WILLEFORD READER, which will contain unpublished stuff, stories, articles, plays, and a full novel (KISS YOUR ASS GOODBYE). Sort of an introduction to his work, or a best-of collection, if you will.

Only DIFFERENCE exist in an electronic form and thus the conversion process will take a lot of time & effort (especially considering the fragile state of the two early novels), but they're slowly on their way.

Also, in light of the recent translations discussion, Point Blank will publish English translations of listmember Tapani Bagge's novels, starting with his Lansdale/Leonard flavored urban hardboiled knockout, PUHALTAJA (tentatively titled THE JACK), sometime in 2005.
