SHIBUMI!!!! Fond memories. Out at dinner with friends tonight, we discussed how some of the problem with publishing today and low enthusiasm for reading was due to the lack of explicit sex scenes in today's popular fiction. CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR, ENDLESS LOVE, and SHIBUMI all came up as the sort of stories that got people interested in reading. I think ENDLESS LOVE had a twenty-something page sex scene. That just doesn't seem to happen in serious fiction any more.

Being a Go player, this is great news :)
Thanks!

JD Rhoades

Oh, yes. Yes. Yesyesyesyes. This is GREAT news.

How does THE GENTLEMAN'S HOUR not have a US pub date. This business is getting sketchier and sktechier.

Dean Bryant

Spelunking AND killing someone with a rolled-up magazine. How can you go wrong?

Mitch Hoffman told me about this at Bouchercon and he said that Winslow is continuing the Nicholas Hel character, but that the style will be his own. He's not trying to ape Trevanian. (Or something like that.... It was a conversation over cocktails.)

I can already picture the blurb: "It's like Trevanian, only without the misogyny!"

David--if we use that blurb, we'll be sure to give you proper credit.

Scott Phillips

And of course Trevanian wasn't even Trevanian himself while he still lived--he sold off the rights to the name (in the '70s or '80s, I believe) in order to pay for his daughter's medical care.

John McFetridge

Looking forward to it already.

Now, if only there would be a sequel to THE MAIN.

Swierczynski

This sounds great. Though I'd also love to see another Sanction novel -- be it a prequel/sequel to THE EIGER SANCTION or THE LOO SANCTION.

David J. Montgomery

Another Hemlock novel makes so much more sense.... But Mitch didn't ask me.

Step back and brighter!

It better be good. Doesn't have to be as good as Trevanina, but it better be good. I just purchased the ARC and will be reviewing it.
