Saw an eerily prescient, 60 yr old ep of IVE GOT A SECRET today where a 5yr old warned host Garry Moore that smoking would kill him. It generated lots of laughs from him & the panel...but the kid was right.

Here's Richard Markowitz's theme to JOE FORRESTER, a short-lived, 1975 spin-off from POLICE STORY.

I got a nice write-up today in the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin for my new book TRUE FICTION, which comes out April 1. My mothers side of the family is from Walla Walla and one of the characters in my book is from the town.

The write-up gets one thing wrong...they credit me with writing "Dial M for Murder," which would make me about 100 years old :-)

I'm so sad to hear about Sue Grafton's death. Not only was she incredibly talented, she was also a very nice woman.

I met her for the first time in the mid-1980s at the Santa Barbara Writers Conference...shortly after her first or second book came out. I had a long, thoroughly delightful lunch with her, my Mom, and Paul Lazarus...and then I think we did a panel together. She wasn't a celebrity then, but she made a strong impression on me and Mom. We liked her instantly. After that, I ran into Sue often on the "book circuit" and she was always so gracious and nice to everyone...and never failed to ask how my Mom was doing.

A few years ago, she was a special guest at the Riverpark Center in Owensboro, KY...we did a panel together during the day and I was honored to interview her at a gala dinner. She was commissioned as a Kentucky Colonel during one of the events. As the Kentucky secretary of state or whomever it was told the audience all the reasons she deserved the honor, she leaned over & whispered in my ear: "This is the third or fourth time they've made me a Kentucky Colonel. You'd think they'd keep track of this stuff". But she went up on stage, thanked the politician for his kind words, and said what an honor it was for her to receive it as a native Kentuckian.
In between, those events, I got together with her and her husband at Denny's for some nice breakfasts together, where we talked shop.Those were the special times for me.

The last time I saw her was at Bouchercon in Albany, where we chatted for a while at the bar and I got to introduce her to some writer-friends of mine, who she immediately treated like old friends of hers, too. That's the kind of lady she was.

I've been catching up on my awards season screeners over the last few days. here are my capsule reviews.
THE POST - Earnest, very timely given Trump's attacks on the media, and yet quite dull.
HOSTILES - a great western. Christian Bales’ & Rosamond Pike’s best performances.
MOLLY'S GAME - I really liked it, despite it repeating the same emotional & narrative beats over & over. That said, I liked it much more than STEVE JOBS. I'm a sucker for punchy dialogue.
DARKEST HOUR - Earnest, well-made, dull.
DOWNSIZED - Inventive, episodic, open-ended, felt like a busted TV pilot rather than a movie.
I LOVE YOU, DADDY Louis CK's "comedy" would be creepy, sick, awful movie even w/o knowing what we know about him. Now it also serves as a disturbing confession & rationalization of his own abhorrent treatment of women.
DISASTER ARTIST - Clever, funny, but the lead character borders on unbearable. I came close to not finishing the movie.
LADY BIRD - Well made, great performances, but didn't I see this movie before? I think it was called JUNO.
LOST CITY OF Z - My wife fell asleep 30 mins in so we haven't gotten back to it. Might never.

Today I got an email from Ed Gorman:
“Can I ask you a personal favor? I need a favor ASAP.
Regards,
EJ Gorman”
That’s pretty amazing considering that he’s dead. Who knew they had Internet in the next life? I wonder if the service is just as bad.
