Just for fun, let's see what other crime writers are Iowa Writers
For one, Max Phillips, author of the Shamus-winning FADE TO BLONDE (and
visionary art director who designed the look of Hard Case Crime).
For another, Max Allan Collins, whom I don't recall anyone describing
as an excessively nose-in-the-air literary type.
My tentative conclusion: Iowa only breeds insufferable artistes, unless
their name is "Max."
