Comments: Joe, Aggiecon isn't exactly the best con for writers, and it's difficult to find any writers unless it's before or after a panel. point is i was wondering if you know how available you'll be at this year's event. i'd really appreciate some signatures for some friends. also will you be selling in the dealer's room by any chance? i don't see any bookdealers at the event.

Comments: For those of you interested in hearing Joe's telephone interview with David English on the Book Crazy Radio Network on Thursday, March 13th, let me prewarn you about the confusion regarding the times that the interview will be aired. David told me once again today that he was informed the first interview would be broadcast at 3:00AM Eastern Standard Time, and then again at five hour intervals till the last one at 11:00PM. If you go to the webiste, however, it says that David's show will air at 2:00AM Eastern Standard Time, and then again at four hour intervals--2:00AM, 6:00AM, 10:00AM, 2:00PM, 6:00PM, and finally at 10:00PM. Neither David, nor I, know which is the correct time because this is an experiment that the Radio Network is trying. They don't usually have specific times for each show. Anyway, that's the news at it stands right now.

I’ve just read, “Live Girls” by Ray Garton. What other books of his would you recommend?

Comments: Hey, Joe. Interviewed you some time ago. We both knew Barbara Puechner. Also...Met you at Dark Delicacies in Burbank a short time ago. Just wanted to say "Dark Line" is a wonderful book and that you keep getting better each time to bat, which is pretty amazing. Another Hap and Leonard in the works by any chance?

Comments: Looks like I'll have to read CAPTAINS OUTRAGEOUS again. I read it when it first came out, but for some reason, I can't remember seeing Jim Bob Luke in there at all. Hmm. Thanks for the info, Wayne.

Jim Bob Luke makes an appearance with the boys in Captains Outrageous (the newest Hap/Leonard novel). For everyone else, I received an e-mail from David English early this morning about the times for Joe's interview on the Book Crazy Radio Network at www.BookCrazy.net. David informed me that Joe's interview would first air at 3:00am on the morning of Thursday, March 13th. Now, whether this is is Eastern, or Central, or Pacific time--I don't know. I would guess Eastern Standard Time. The interview will then be broadcast at five hour intervals--3:00am, 8:00am, 1:00pm, 6:00pm and 11:00pm. If I find out more on the subject, I'll let everyone know. I don't you about you, but I'm already pretty excited about hearing Joe being interviewed. My only regret is that Hap and Leonard won't be with him!

Comments: Hey Joe,
I wrote to you few years ago (prior to my reading BAD CHILI for the first time), asking if you'd ever pair up the boys with Jim Bob Luke (probably my favorite character of yours), and you answered me with a signed paperback of BAD CHILI. I'm am eternally grateful, but I can't help wondering if ol' Jim Bob will ever turn up again in the future. Not that I'm expecting another free book or anything.
I'd certainly shell out my own cash for another peek at the Red Bitch. Or anything else you write. Loved A FINE DARK LINE.

Very glad to see you have your own board. I run Graham Masterton's board/site, so it's always a pleasure to see other authors I admire with their own Horror World forums.
I've been a big fan of yours since I first read Savage Season, which I guess would have been late 80s or thereabouts. I've avidly read your books since then; indeed I just finished Rumble Tumble. Great book! Some of that some of the narrative/dialogue had me in stitches. It's been great fun following Hap and Leonard's adventures, and this one was certainly up to the high benchmark you've set yourself. Totally unique, wacky and violent narrative. I read it in about 2 days. Can't wait to read Captains Outrageous.
I remember once quoting a passage from The Bottoms on the Masterton board. The reason? Well, you and Graham are a rare breed in that you both use language in a way that's simultaneously shocking, evocative and hugely funny. With just a few words you have the ability to graft metaphors and images that remain seared into the mind. You both also make use of food metaphors and ruthlessly spare descriptions which say all they need to with a minimum of words (which as any author knows is much harder to achieve than it looks). I guess it's also down to the way you guys view life and the people that populate it.
Anyway, thanks for listening to me ramble on. I guess it goes without saying that I wish you luck with future endeavours and that I, for one will be searching out and devouring your books (not literally you understand) as long as they're published. Keep up the fantastic work!
