A couple of other Thompson dead-narrator books include "Savage Night" (my favorite) and "After Dark, My Sweet" (also excellent). My first published crime story, A Long Time to Die (New Mystery Magazine), also has a soon-to-be-dead-narrator, as do a few other of my other works. For anyone interested, you can find A Long Time to Die at:
