I’m fascinated by the way movies can distill a novel to its essence*. It’s like cutting a raw diamond and turning it into a priceless gem. Of course, sometimes it doesn’t work, but where it does, it can be its own kind of genius.

* The Godfather springs to mind.The Warriors, too.  Of course, Apocalypse Now did it in the oppsite way, took a tiny gem of a novel and turned it into a sprawling mess.

Gun Jesus

Finally finished the first draft of Gun Jesus, the third of the Mark Barrett action/adventure series. The fourth, if you include the Christmas-themed novella Spenderella.

I’ll put this one to bed for a while now. Let it sleep.

I’m hoping to complete one short thing before Christmas, then return to the two books I have marinating, of which this is one.


I have four books lined up on my kindle, ready to read, and two books of my own to complete this year.

Time to get back in the saddle.
