Comments: Just started THE WOMAN today, and am shaking in delight! Would have started earlier, but had to read Dunwich Romance by your buddy Lee first. Hope things are well! Bob

Comments: Well its off for another round of back surgery this Tuesday. One of the upsides, except for the obvious relief of pain, are some new arrivals from my wish list!
Dangerous Red - Mehitobel Wilson
Suffer the Flesh - Monica O'Rourke
A Feast of Snakes - Harry Crews
Blood Meridan - Cormac McCarthy (one of Stephen Kings all-time top ten)
Hope everyone has a great weekend, happy reading!

Comments: Dallas, I am trying to recruit another reader for you. I gave them Off Season to start off since it's your first one, and maybe a top 3 or 4 in my opinion, among, The Girl Next Door, Red, and Right to Life. I need to reread that myself. I'll let you know their feedback. Hope you're doing well...Later.

Comments: I've been away from the board for a while, I know. I'll try to be better about it in the future. Life -- damn thing tends to intrude...JOSH -- I couldn't find the page for your song at that address. Sure it's correct? SEAN, KONNIE, DIRK -- I've done walk-ons in all my movies, including THE WOMAN, but in both that and THE GIRL NEXT DOOR if you blink you'll miss me. In THE WOMAN the shot's the interior of a car and I'm walking a dog behind it, also grilling burgers way in the distance in the picnic scene. In GIRL I'm also way in the distance as a carny, letting the kids onto the ferris wheel. But hey, in RED I've actually got lines! I doubt I'd take a part in a movie that requires much serious acting, SEAN -- I hate learning lines -- though I do like doing commentary. I'm open to that anytime. Glad you liked the one in THE LOST. And DIRK, cigars and cocktails sounds just about perfect. IAN -- Lucky and I work so well together that we're considering yet ANOTHER project after the current one is finished. Stay tuned. JOHN -- see you at KillerCon! BOB -- you get the novel yet? I think CD is catching up now. MEAGHAN -- I'm sorry we threw your cousin into a panic. Hope it wasn't serious. But glad you all liked the thing. DIRK - I don't have a paperback of IN THE DARK, only the hardcover, but I think I know what you mean. Was it payback for my mentioning THE WOODS ARE DARK in OFFSPRING? Stay well, folks, and all best, - D

Comments: Hey Dallas, hope all is well. Just finished Laymon's 'In The Dark'. I don't want to ruin the surprise for those who haven't got a hold of this one yet, but page 373 (paper back) very nice! I'm sure you know what I mean.
Have a great weekend, Dirk

Comments: OMG The Woman is great I showed it to my cousin and she had a panic attack afterwards, and I had to walk her to her car and then sit with her for a good 30min before she felt ok to leave. So far everybody I've shown it to sits there with a terrifed, painful look on there face. RIGHT ON!

Comments: Hey Dallas! Man, I am stoked. Just watched THE WOMAN on blu ray and it is indeed better the second time! In addition to my positive feelings on the film itself, this time the soundtrack by Sean Spillane really stood out. I purchased the CD and listening to it now. Amazing. I think I heard Lucky saying in the special features that he hand picked Sean for the music, and it is perfect. Loved seeing you for a few minutes in the special features too. Now waiting on the novel to be shipped by CD. It's killing me! Congrats! Bob

Comments: Hope this finds you all well. After last year ending in a truly craptacular fashion for me, this one seems to be starting out okay! Some success with the writing and other projects. Dallas, I fear I won't make it to NECON this summer but will be at Killercon and will buy you a drink, sir. Deal? Everyone have a great week and weekend.
434 Tue February 07 2012 - 06:16:11
Comments: Hey Jack, I'm really happy to hear that you and Lucky are working together again. It's good to see that great filmmakers are finally discovering you. It'd be nice to see the film adaptations of your work actually approach the quality of the source material. The Woman came close, but your writing is probably just too damn good for that to be possible. I hope you have as much luck with the movies as Stephen King has had.

Comments: What an evening! Had the neighbors over for a cigar and cocktails, then we settled in to watch the much awaited 'The Woman'. Outstanding! Pollyanna was amazing, casting couldn't have been better. I can't say enough, the four of us all gave it 4 stars. The only down side was the lack of your cameo!
Have a great weekend! - Dirk

Comments: I have to agree, The Woman movie is the best movie of yours!! I had to order through Amazon, as Best Buy isn't selling this! Too bad there isn't a commentary, I love the one with you and Monica O'Rourke on The Lost! Also, the interview you did on Header was awesome as well! No cameo in The Woman, though! :(

Comments: And I won't link to my site, because that ain't classy (not even classy to mention I have one probably...) but I was a really huge fan of Off Season and reviewed it, and plan to review Cover at some point.
Cover is one of my favorite novels, so I've been putting it off, as it's understandably nerve-wracking to review something you genuinely love.
Red was really heartbreaking too, and brilliant. As a huge lover of animals (work at a pet store currently) all the animals in your work, and the abuse they sometimes encounter, shakes me to the core.

Comments: You've said you were an actor at one point in your life. You've appeared in Offspring, and pretty sure you were a bartender in The Lost Anyway, my question is, could you ever see yourself having an acting role for more than a cameo, in either an adaptation of your work, or a different role unrelated to your written work?
Also, would you ever consider recording another commentary for a film adaptation of your work? Do you enjoy listening to dvd commentary tracks?
My favorite is Polanski's commentary for The Ninth Gate. He just randomly mentions how he's smoking a cigar and eating chocolate, and is silent for a good chunk of its duration. He explains the silence is because he hasn't seen his own film in a while, and is enjoying it.
I just like the mental image of Polanski sitting in silence eating chocolate and smoking, watching his movie, when he's supposed to be recording the commentary.

Comments: Hi there. I'm a huge fan of your work. Just finished reading The Woman. Loved it. I'm an amateur musician and The Girl Next Door inspired me quite a lot. I just finished up a song about it. Thought you might enjoy it.
Not trying to spam or anything, just thought you might think it was cool.

Comments: Howdy out there...JIMBO -- I admire Mr. King's work immensely and he seems to like mine too. But I don't know about collaboration -- that would be like the tortoise (me) working with the hare (Steve.) He's got a billion ideas an hour, I'm just a plodder...DIRK -- thanks again for the recomms. I'll have to get on some of these, if I ever get out from under. IAN -- glad you liked THE WOMAN. They never asked us to do a commentary, which I agree is too bad. Oh well...Lucky and I are currently working on something else, but another WOMAN movie certainly isn't out of the question. We have had some ideas...take care, folks. -- D
441 Sat January 28 2012 - 03:41:42
Comments: Hey Jack, I just watched The Woman and it is definitely the best movie based off one of your books, you and Lucky should be proud. What a great cast, great editing, great soundtrack, great writing and direction, I loved it! I was disappointed there was no commentary by you guys on the disc though. I hope Offseason can get made to complete a great trilogy of horror films, maybe The Cow can make it a quadrilogy. Any plans to continue this great series in book or movie form. Please say yes!
442 Fri January 27 2012 - 15:02:41
Comments: Hi all, just finished another that is worth a look, 'The Last Motel' by Brett McBean. This one is really nasty and mean, well worth it.
Also have another Kilborn on the way, 'Trapped'.
Have a good weekend!

Comments: I'm sure you'll roll your eyes at this question Jack, so I apologise if you've been asked it countless times. But I understand that Stephen King and yourself are good friends and he gives you a lot of praise. Do you think you two might collaborate on a book in the future? I'm sure it would be an incredible piece of work and a huge hit for both of your readers.

Comments: Sorry about all the typos. My brain's going faster than my fingers...
445 Sat January 21 2012 - 20:57:40
Comments: DIRK, GAIL -- thanks for the recommendations. Always happy to open this page to that kind of thing. And DARK, I will be at NECON. See you there! IAN -- 2011 was a good year for me professionally, not so much personally. So I figure it's a wash. For 2012 I predict that the media will continue to Kardashian us to death, do virtually no digging into stories we really need to know about, and generally annoy me. KONNIE -- THE WOMAN's out on Tuesday the 24th. Pounce! And yep, I'll see you at KillerCon. BARTEK -- thanks for the OFFSPRING linke. Excellent! Bet to all, D.

Comments: How many more days until The Woman comes out? Too damn many...
Dirk, I Saw The Devil was really good, I'll have to check out Eden Lake.
Oh, and we are planning on going to KillerCon in Vegas this September! Jack Ketchum and Edward Lee?? I will not be missing this, even if I have to leave my hubby at home! :)

Comments: Hey Jack, any thoughts on 2011 or predictions for 2012?
450 Sat January 07 2012 - 12:52:28
Comments: Happy new year to you too! For those of you out there still waiting on your copy of 'The Woman' from Amazon here are a few titles to keep you occupied:
'I saw the Devil', a great sleeper, you wont be dissappointed.
'Eden Lake' isn't bad either.
Some recently good reads, any of the Jack Kilborn books, just finished 'Endurance', fast paced and in your face good. Though so small in size, 'Freeze' by Daniel Pyle is original and fun. Currently back to Laymon reading 'Quake', you can't go wrong.
D, will you be at NECON this year? If so we will be booking our spot, take care, Dirk
