I have been blogging less this week. The main reason is that I am working on the third draft of the new Calvino novel. The progress is slow but sure and I expect to have the draft finished by the first week in March. I envy the writers who can write five pages, revise, move on, and then at the end of the book, hit the save button and send it off to the publisher. I pull apart the text of each draft and rewrite substantially. It’s like performing an autopsy of an unknown species, each time you look at what should be a femur and find out it is sticking out of the head, you know it is time to go back and look at the skeleton again. The main thing is to make certain that the skull is connected to the backbone....

Over the years, some of original titles in the English edition have changed. The reprinted English editions with different titles from the original include:

Cut Out = Zero Hour in Phnom Penh
Enemies of Memory = Tokyo Joe
Saint Anne = Red Sky Falling

Non-English editions also can cause confusion. Like most writers, I have no control over the decision of a foreign language publisher to change the original English title. Most of the time, that wouldn't matter, as the new title is in a foreign language. But sometimes the foreign publisher uses a different English language title on the foreign language edition to broaden the international image of the book.

Recently in an interview I was asked about the name Vincent Calvino. What had inspired me to use this name? In 1990-91 when I started the Calvino series, I began going through the possible names for the central character of the book I planned to write. Naming is an important act in the creation of a work of fiction. If the name fits, it somehow makes the act of imagining the character easier, more fluid and the person becomes, in a sense, “real.” ...

The last week has been a busy one. Two interviews done for Italian journalists who are great supports of crime fiction. And another interview with a German journalist who was in town, and I was able to show him a few of the haunts frequented by Calvino in the novels. A bad case of food poisoning slowed me down on Friday. It is one of those strikes to the system that you fear at first that you will die and 12-hours later wish to die. It was traced back to lettuce in a salad on a restaurant that shall go nameless.<...

Stephen Leather’s Dead Men, the fifth in his highly popular Spider Shepherd series received a glowing review in The Economist January 19th - 25th. The review observes, “In brisk newsman’s style he explores complex contemporary issues while keeping the action fast and bloody…in ‘Dead Men’, Mr. Leather manages to avoid preaching while he poses tough questions about the morality of the fight against terrorism and whether the means justifies the end.”...

Below is a photograph of Vinny’s youngest fan in Honolulu, Melissa Murphy. Melissa’s photo seen below was taken by her father, Honolulu lawyer John Murphy.

They’ve tracked down a copy of The Risk of Infidelity Index As a result, I will be sending along a signed complimentary copy of The Big Weird to John, to hold in trust, for the benefit of his daughter, and to sell on her 18th birthday, at which time the value of said book should be (in a perfectly ordered universe) sufficient to fund her university education....
