RARA-AVIS: Re: Name Your Poison

KBS -- we're in agreement. Characters can be larger than life (such as The Last Quarry), or much smaller than life (such as my favorite Thompson book--and maybe my favorite crime novel, Savage Night), but as long as their actions, rationales, thought processes, etc. are consistent and make sense for them--as opposed to being something artificial to drive the plot, then for me it works as a reader--and that's what I strive for in my own writing.

You're in trouble there, pal. I believe Stephen Colbert has "truthiness" trademarked. My guess, you now owe him at least a buck (or $1.46 Canadien) for your trademark infringement ;)
