    LOL ---- that's what I get for trying to watch a film and send email at the same time.
      As one might deduce, this was meant to be sent privately to Todd --- but hey, as with most everything I do, there's nothing I wouldn't say Publicly that I say Privately!
      So, you voyeurs enjoy yourselves, and the rest of you...apologies for the inconvenience! ;)

    Hey, Todd ------------ --------- ---------
      Thanks for the heads-up on the JR profile in MYSTERY SCENE.
      Are you at all interested in Westerns, by the way...?? (I've found, over my many years mixing in various Fandoms, that there's a serious cross-over between Noir/Det fans and Western fans...mainly with males, but some gals, too.)
      Reason (no pun intendd) that I ask is that James & I are members of an APA (ask me if you don't know the term, but somehow I suspect you do know it) called OWLHOOT. It covers all aspects of the Western genre, from Film to Fiction to History to Toys and beyond --- and of course, there's plenty of Personal Ramblings unrelated to the Topic At Hand, as in most fun APAe.
      Anyway, I've greatly enjoyed your Posts on the R-A list (I tend to Lurk, as most of youse guys are WAY more knowledgeable than I --- I'm mostly a Film Noir film fan [watching CRIME AGAINST JOE as I type], but what books & stories I've read, I enjoy the Noir/Pulp fiction as much if not more), and thought you might want to join us in OWLHOOT.
      Let me know, and I'll fill you in on the details --- and feel to prompt me with any Q's, eh?
      Keep up the good work, amigo! Best an' all,
    ------------ --------- -----ap

    Picked up the new BUFFY comic for Alice the soon to be former housemate, as the most leisurely residence move I've ever made continues (100 degree days, occasionally Celsius, encourage leisurely transport and box hauling up the stairs), and in the Meet the Dark Horse Comics folks page, a photo and squib of Mark Finn is on offer, in this month's HELLBOY comic (assuming there is such this month) and such as well, I'd suspect. (I believe he's working with them on their CONAN magazine).

    Also, the new MYSTERY SCENE features, among much else such as the Lawrence Block interview-piece by Kevin Burton Smith, a short but informative interview about James Reasoner's career with MIKE SHAYNE MYSTERY MAGAZINE, and its editors and a little of the pre-Reasoner history, as conducted by Ed Gorman, founder and original proprietor of MYSTERY SCENE.
