I can’t even remember what it was I came here to get away from.

You can find the Kindle edition of my novel Bloodbath, a neo-noir pulp thriller, here.  My Western novella Missouri Green can be found here, and my novella Circus, a romance of the big top, here.  If you don’t own a Kindle you can get free Kindle reading apps for most computers and portable devices here.

My book Fourteen Western Stories is available in a paperback and a Kindle edition here, and my latest Kindle book, Christmas In the West, six Christmas-themed Western tales, can be found here.

  3. I wanted to say ‘thank you’ .. I stumbled on your blog after googling ‘ Victorian Academic Art’ & then got transported all over the place following your hugely enjoyable postings !
    By way of return some ( very random ) things it occurs to me you may enjoy & might perhaps have missed ( I grew up in England & live in Kent ):

    ‘ Snow 1963 ‘( Geoffrey Jones) : an 8 minute short of the UK railways of that winter (easily found on You Tube).

    ‘I Am Love ‘(‘ lo sono amore ‘ ) : 2009 film starring Tilda Swinton

    ‘Diva’ / ‘Subway’/’ Le Grand Bleu’ : 1980s French art house movies .. full of stuff -you -miss -the -first -time -you -watch -them and ..I especially love the last of these , think is so beautifully made in every regard.

    ‘ Gregory’s Girl ‘ ( Bill Forsyth 1981) : Quirky , full of background jokes & amazing performances from ‘ ordinary’ Scottish kids.

    Many Thanks Again
    With Best Wishes


    • Hey, Sophie — thanks for your note. So glad you enjoy the blog. I know some of the films you mention, will look out for the others!

  4. Did you ever write about Sweet Smell of Success? I watched it tonight for the first time. Lovely James Wong Howe photography and lots to like, but what a nutty piece of work that is, that a man should love a sister so.

    • I’ve never written about it but I like it a lot, dark as it is. Kevin was especially fond of the line “Come back, Sidney — I want to chastise you”, and of course found many occasions to use it.
