Thanks, Mario and all who sent congratulations for Blood Drive making the best seller list at Mysterious Galaxy. It means a lot. The anthology, Many Bloody Returns, is out now and doing well, too. I remember someone saying you build an audience one reader at a time and I have some pretty damn good ones! Thank you.
Saw the movie 310 to Yuma
this weekend. How can you beat a movie with Christian Bale and Russell Crowe? It was excellent. I never saw the original (my daughter says it’s even better) but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Then, coincidentally, this article popped up from Cinemablend.com.
It named the top 5 modern westerns and guess which movie was #5? Serenity! Here’s a quote: The turmoil between the alliance and the crew of Serenity is wonderfully presented in a way that’s reminiscent of U.S. Marshalls tracking down an old west gang.
Now no movie made before 1990 was considered, which leaves out the best westerns of all time—the spaghetti westerns—but the list is interesting nonetheless. Any of you have a favorite western?Time Magazine
did a list of the 100 Best TV Shows of all Time. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is included. What more can I say?
And something just for fun—Who is the dancing demon in this photograph? If you know, you’re an unapologetic dork fan just like the rest of us…
Mario and I are off to the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Colorado Gold Conference this weekend…well, not exactly off since it’s here in Denver. But we’ll try to post some pictures and I’ll try to keep Mario out of trouble. Good luck with that last one, huh?
