“A ship is safe in a harbor, but that is not what ships are built for.” – Author John Shedd.
The fifth Max Strong, BURN THE NIGHT, is out with the Advance Team. It’s always exciting and nerve-wracking to put something out into the world but sharing stories is why we write.
Ok, let’s get to it.
Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:
- The latest IQ book by Joe Ide was released this week and Ide gave an entertaining interview to the New York Times on on Nurse Ratched, three unlikely dinner guests, poetry, back problems, and finally reading FRANKENSTEIN.
- CrimeReads gathers some of the vanguard women pushing espionage thrillers in new directions for a round table discussion of the genre.
- The Guardian has a profile on BEHIND HER EYES author Sarah Pinborough and yes, they talk about the genesis and reaction to “that ending”
Two from Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN:
“Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.”
“Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.”
- Did you read BEHIND HER EYES or is the Netflix show the first time you’re hearing about it?
Until next Thursday, happy reading,
Author the Max Strong thriller series
