Kevin Burton Smith’s “100 Eyes of the Mystery Scene Era” has been published in the 100th issue of Mystery Scene Magazine. Vincent Calvino is listed under #9.
“9 VINCENT CALVINO (Christopher G. Moore) A transplanted New York shamus is our man in Bangkok, doing the ex-pat shuffle. This is the world calling.”
Kevin observes that the list is in alphabetical order as “any other sort of order would surely led to madness.”
It is a great list, including: Lydia Chin & Bill Smith (S.J. Rozan), Elvis Cole (Robert Crais), Lionel Essrog (Jonathan Lethem), Philip E. Marlow (Dennis Potter), Sam McCain (Ed Gorman), Charlie “Bird” Parker (John Connolly), Stephanie Plum (Janet Evanovich), Easy Rawlins (Walter Mosley), and Jack Reacher (Lee Child).
In Publishers Weekly 18-25 July, the deal with Grove was announced for 4 books in the Vincent Calvino series:
“Title: VINCENT CALVINO Author: Christopher G. Moore Agent: Bridget Wagner at The Sagalyn Agency Editor: Morgan Entrekin at Grove/Atlantic Blurb: four novels in the Bangkok-based series starring Vincent Calvino, disbarred American lawyer Deal: No deal listed”
In the language of Publishers Weekly it would be a “good deal.”
In any language it is a great deal.
