Couple of fiction notes

1. Someone in IRC just pointed me at, a collection of classic pulps of The Shadow. Takes me back to when I was a kid and listened to the radio shows on tape/radio . . . too cool.

2. Update on Hostage. I was very tempted to pull an all nighter for this one. It's very different in flavor and pacing than the Elvis Cole series. I've stopped missing them, and have been drawn into Chief Tulley's world. The set up Crais creates in the first hundred pages or so is brilliant. This is all going to go horribly, horribly bad. Which means it will be incredibly fun to read. Only question is how dark Crais will let it go . . . .

my guess is very.
