In a world gone wacky, one thing that keeps me grounded is great fiction by the likes of writers like John D. MacDonald. He was a virtuoso of prose, plotting, suspense, and writerly professionalism. The WordPress spellchecker says that “writerly” isn’t a word but what the hell. I think you know what I mean.
The two novellas in this book, BORDER TOWN GIRL and LINDA, are well worth reading.
The cover is by the great Robert McGinnis, who is still doing covers for publishers like Hard Case Crime.
Yes, a good book and a cup of coffee enjoyed al fresco help maintain the sanity…
I haven’t been blogging much lately so I’m going to do a series of short posts like this to get myself back into it. Check back again soon to see what I’m up to next. Even if it’s just putting up a picture with a few lines, it’ll get me going.
