A recent conversation with Jeffery Deaver revealed details of a survey he had undertaken.

I have to count […]

You and Hank

Jan 31, 2011 in Guest Posts, Popcorn Fiction, Short Stories

A Popcorn Fiction selection. Two salesmen see the dark side of Bangkok in this short story from screenwriter Darby Kealey. Oh yeah, and one of the salesmen is: you. The first thing you notice as you step out of the airport is the heat. It’s hot in Bangkok. Not like LA heat, either. It’s thicker, […]

Alone in a Room

Jan 28, 2011 in Guest Posts, Writing

Not long ago I found myself alone in San Francisco with some of the most famous paintings in the western world. One entire room was devoted to Van Gogh: Starry Night Over The Rhone, The Bedroom at Arles, Portrait Of The Artist, some of Van Gogh’s most famous works. Paul Gauguin’s self portrait (right), was […]

A Conversation with Brian Koppelman

Jan 25, 2011 in Film, Guest Posts, Writing

As the co-writer (along with his writing partner David Levien) of movies like Rounders, Ocean’s Thirteen, Knockaround Guys, Runaway Jury, and Solitary Man (which he also co-directed with Levien), it’s safe to say Brian Koppelman knows a thing or two about making criminals and con-men spark for wide audiences. As his film Solitary Man blazes a path across the DVD shelves, […]

A Writer’s Life

Jan 24, 2011 in Guest Posts

A writer’s life is often considered to be a life of ease. Apparently there was a survey last year of the British public, and following on from “professional footballer” as the most favored profession, “writer” came second. I think somewhere there must be a viewpoint that a writer rises late (he would have to following […]
