Comments: Hello, all...GAIL -- I know what you mean about wanting bigger texts in books. Picked up a mass-market paperback the other day, which I haven't done in a while, and if you think the text for SAM was small, try one of those! Getting old sucks...FEDY -- I'm pretty sure that MIDNIGHT ECHO #8 with our story in it is still available electronically, if you have an e-reader. DIRK -- enjoy SAM...TOBIN -- glad you took our advice and paused before starting WHO'S LILY? Works, doesn't it. JOHN -- thanks for the recommendation. The ghost of Hank Williams? I'm on it. And it's been a pleasure working with you guys in a VERY cool magazine. BOB -- hope you're still enjoying I'M NOT SAM. Don't forget to pause! Best to all, D.

Comments: Finally got around to starting I'm Not Sam, and 75 pages in. This is a hell of a novel, thus far. I am curious to know what is going to happen. The prose is spot on and the story keeps me turning the pages. Good show, Dallas! Bob

Comments: I want to take a minute say I hope everyone is having a great 2013 so far...
All of the adaptations of ketchum's books have been solid, I think RED may be my favorite, if for no other reason than the incredible casting. Tom Sizemore is quite the sonofabitch.
I also wanna take a moment and mention that not only did I have the honor of interviewing Dallas for SHOCK TOTEM issue #5, but we were blessed with a rare-ish story of his for the upcoming 6th issue.
We're really proud of what we put out and it means so much for D to have enough faith in us to do these things. Thanks so much, D!!
I know we all share great things we've read or are reading, I wanna share a novel by Steve Earle called "I'll Never get Out of This World Alive." I found it rawly brilliant and can you really go wrong with a novel that has the ghost of Hank Williams as a main character!?

Comments: Hey Jack. Two things. First and foremost, just finished I'm Not Sam. Did what you suggested and took a day between the main story and Who's Lily. Really glad I did, loved it. Second, I left you a message through the Facebook inbox and also through and email through Kev. Just checking to see if you got it. Thanks, Tobin. Keep writing, man. The world needs more Jack Ketchum.

Comments: Hey D! Just wanted to let ya know received Sam yesterday, can't wait, but have to finish up Laymon's Body Rides first, will keep ya posted!

Comments: @Gail... go get "The woman" movie! it is absolutely amazing!!!
108 Wed January 23 2013 - 03:21:22
Comments: Hi Dallas,
Thanks, it is so good to be back!
I received ¡§I am not Sam¡¨ (signed of course) a couple of days ago and just waiting for the perfect conditions to begin reading it cos once I start I know I¡¦ll keep going till the end. Can¡¦t wait.
On the other hand, unfortunately, I was so busy lately I completely missed the release of your story on the Australian Horror Magazine (a disaster of a fan I am), do you know if it will be printed anywhere else?
And for the drinks, you realise that those could become more expensive than the flights with us as fans? Lol ƒº

Comments: Mr Ketchum ,
Thank you for your response and recommendation, I have ALL of your movies but The Woman. Red was fantastic, but TGND was still the best adaptation of a book I have EVER SEEN. I just received I'm not Sam today in the mail, my only complaint however is even with my damm glasses on I find the print very small and really have to look at it. Maybe it's my kindle that has spoiled me this way. It's just constructive critasium ? sorry,I can't spell, but you could make the text bigger for us over 40 ! hahaha

Comments: GAIL -- glad you thought the movie of THE GIRL NEXT DOOR was "on the money." Me too. And since you liked RED so much as a novel, you should try that movie too. Brian Cox really nails it. Hope you enjoy SAM. FEDY -- welcome back. And sure, organize all that flying and drinks are on me! CATHY -- hope you like SAM...and no tea stains! Best to all, D.
111 Fri January 18 2013 - 17:36:00
Comments: Cool lol. Im just terrified of flying!
Received my signed copy of "Im not Sam" today finally. Will have to order another copy to read as knowing me ill spill tea all over it or something.
Thanks Jack it made my day.
112 Tue January 15 2013 - 21:09:15
Comments: @Ian, we should then organise a "Ketchum fan charter flight" to NY, departing first from the UK, picking me up in Oz and you as last in Seattle. Quite expensive and time consuming, but I reckno it'd be fun! :)
113 Tue January 15 2013 - 07:11:59
Comments: Fedy wants Jack to go to Australia, I want him to come to Seattle, and now somebody wants him to go to England! I'm thinking it'd be easier for all of us to just to go to him in New York City, even if they don't have any used bookstores to visit. The city that never sleeps, and apparently never reads either!

Comments: Jack, I finally searched for I'm not Sam on amazon - IT'S COMING - IN THE MAIL !!!! YEAH - I can't wait to read this and as I have a Kindle, it is coming in paperback to add to all of the books that you have written for my book case - you have your own shelf !
115 Tue January 15 2013 - 00:21:57
Comments: Hi Dallas,
it's been a while since I last wrote here, hope you and all the fans are well. It's also been a while since I updated my facebook page, my apologies, I'll get back to it shortly cos I have not given up on you being invited to Australia yet!
I am off to the Australia horror con next weekend and I'll see if I can talk to someone there who might get some wheels rolling for this.
Well, what else, like every true obsessed fan, lately I have been checking the mail three or four times a day since "I am not Sam" should be arriving now and I can't wait to read it...
I haven't read anything about it on purpose, so it will be a surprise on all fronts.

Comments: Hello Jack, so number one for the top disturbing novels eh ? congratulations ! when they said guess what would be number one, I knew it would be this one. The book is very disturbing,and I was quite shocked at some of the scenes. The movie was RIGHT on the money, never before have I seen a film that was even remotely like the book, kudos to you sir. If your " new readers " would like something as disturbing I would recommend "RED " When I told you how this made me feel and how I cried,you replied-" It was suppose to do that " thank you for your work :)

Comments: Hi out there...CATHY -- I've never done a Con in England because nobody's ever invited me. If and when they do, I'm there! SUE -- glad you're liking the work. Good question. The fact is that most of the books I read and movies I see are out-of-genre. As a reader I'm all over the place I'm as likely to pick up a biography of Steve McQueen as I am to read FULL DARK, NO STARS, for instance. And most of the movies I see are either foreign or small indies. I think that if you only stick with genre offerings you tend to lose perspective. There's a lot of great art out there of all kinds. What draws me are the people, the characters, and directors and writers who tend to focus on that. Have a good week, folks! Best,

Comments: Greetings from Normal, Illinois. I watched The Woman a few weeks ago. Blew me away. That started me off reading your books. I finished Off Season (fantastic) and now am reading Peaceable Kingdom. (terrific!) I love your pacing in your writing. It's great and refreshing how you really keep things moving. One question for you: What do you read or watch that is NOT in the horror/thriller genre? Do you ever just have the need to "look at something else"?

Comments: Do you ever do any conventions in England? Id love to come but have only see them in the states. I see most your fans here are in the states but im near London.

Comments: Hello folks...IAN -- we don't even HAVE second-hand bookstores in Manhattan anymore. Miss 'em. And I guess I'll have to warn my lady friends about Portland...JIM -- glad you got a good introductory experience with THE WOMAN. Some ambassador, she is...CATHY -- I could write that, if you put the book in front of me. Convention one of these days? Best, D

Comments: Hey Bob, I have sadly never been to Powells Books myself. I do love the Portland transit system and the show Portlandia though. Next time I go down there I will have to see if any more of Jacks books are at Powells. Interesting fact- According to Americas Most Wanted, Portland is the human trafficking capital of the U.S., I never would've guessed that.

Comments: Hey Jack, I had a signed copy of im not sam ordered for me for xmas from cemetary dance. Unfortunatly it didnt turn up for xmas, so looking forward to getting that.
If you could write "to my no.1 fan cathy" in it id appreciate hehe (yea i know.. not possible but i can ask). :P
Have a great new year.

Comments: Hi Dallas,
I just discovered you through the movies The Woman and The Girl Next Door. The Woman was one of the most disturbing movies I've ever seen, loved it. I haven't read anything by you yet, but I will, you got a new fan.

Comments: Ian, Powell's Books is the place to be, isn't it? (I like to call the place heaven) I am going there next month from Florida to propose to my GF of 6 years. Portland is one of our favorite cities to visit. And those breweries!!!

Comments: Happy New Year everyone! Hey Jack, I've never read Closing Time or Peaceable Kingdom, so I'll definitely be checking them out soon, if I can find them. I have I'm Not Sam on hold at the library. Sadly, it's very hard to find your books at libraries or second hand bookshops, which are my main sources. My parents did find me a signed hardcover of Only Child from Powells Books in Portland though.
