Re: RARA-AVIS: Too Much Monkey Business for Me To Be Involved In...

That is scary about Barnes and (Ig)Noble.

The rumor about George (supposedly first made public in a Dennis McMillan newsletter) is that he is getting publisher pressure to tone down (or lose) the "social content" and write straight, plot-driven thrillers. Personally, I always thought it was the social content that made a Pelecanos novel a Pelecanos novel.

Oh, and I forgot one of my favorite writers in my earlier list, Jack O'Connell.
