Orange Coast Magazine's Best of OC


It's a tad embarrassing (embarrassing because I'm more used to being behind the scenes. After all, no one can see you on radio), but some of you may be interested in this piece. (Scan to the bottom for the copy.) It's a nice mention by Orange Coast, which has become a readable magazine again, now that Marty Smith is back at the helm.

David Benioff interview

A couple of weeks ago my co-host Marrie Stone interviewed author David Benioff on the show. Sadly, a broadcasting glitch not only prevented the show from being heard but also canceled out the option of podcasting it. Thanks to Marrie, an excerpt of the interview has been transcribed and posted on my Pen on Fire blog. Click here to read it.

Noir on tomorrow's show

If you're on my e-list for the radio show, you've received this. If not....

Tomorrow, Weds. June 11, for the entire hour, we'll have three authors--Naomi Hirahara, Gary Phillips, and Susan Straight--talking about noir. I'm excited!

Naomi is the author of the Mas Arai mystery novels and the noir short story: "Number 19." Gary is the author of the Ivan Monk and Martha Chainey series, and a lot of short stories including the noir story "Roger Crumbler Considered His Shave." Susan is a novelist ("Highwire Moon" was a National Book Award nominee), and the noir short story: "The Golden Gopher," which won an Edgar. All three of the stories highlighted above are in the collection: "los angeles noir," published by Akashic Books.

Tune in at 9 a.m. Pacific at 88.9 FM KUCI or listen on iTunes. Eventually the show will be podcast and you'll find it here.
