Traveling this week, with little internet access, so no blog entry this weekend. Back soon.
JULY 1 UPDATE: Still on the road, but we - finally - have a winner on the June 16 trivia question:
In which of Donald Westlake's "Richard Stark" novels does Parker pull off a job in Monmouth County, N.J.?
James Cubby of Fair Lawn, N.J., was the only one to come up with the correct answer, 1963's THE MAN WITH THE GETAWAY FACE. In that second Stark novel, Parker and his crew rob an armored car outside a diner in Freehold (though they hide out in Old Bridge, in neighboring Middlesex County, afterward). Jim wins a first-edition hardcover of Stephen King's BLAZE, the lost "Richard Bachman" novel.
Back on blog next week.
