The Many Faces (and Formats) of THE IMMORTAL GAME


Over the years, my first novel, The Immortal Game, has been issued in four (paper book) editions. Today I'm announcing release of a another edition in an entirely new medium: audio.

Der Malteser Falke


Swiss Publisher Diogenes borrowed the photograph I use for the masthead of this blog to promote their German translation of The Maltese Falcon.

The text in white is a line from the book, "Most things in San Francisco can be bought, or taken," which Sam Spade tells Brigid O'Shaughnessy.

The photo was originally done to promote my novel The Immortal Game, and if you look closely you can see the first paragraphs of Chapter 6, "Jodie's Tip," sitting in the typewriter. Quite an honor to have my words on a poster for one of Dashiell Hammett's books!

Joe Gores


Joe Gores, one of my favorite authors and an all-around wonderful guy, died on Monday, January 10th, 50 years to the day that Dashiell Hammett passed away. Read my tribute to him on The Rap Sheet here.
