I have a nice typewritten ( on an actual typewriter! ), hand-signed letter from McCammon that he wrote to me in response to a fan missive that I wrote to him after reading BLUE WORLD back in 1990.


BLUE WORLD has always been one of my favorite collections.

I loved it too. Especially the short novel from which the collection gets its name. Which, I suppose is fairly obvious considering that I wrote to him about it as soon as I was done reading it. LOL.

Smiley I loved the novella "Blue World," too. I think it's a very underrated story. When I first interviewed him in 1989, he told me, "Yeah, I wrote it in about a week. That's the fastest I've ever done anything and it's like 140 pages. I was very excited about it and it just went..."

"Night Calls the Green Falcon" is my favorite short story by any author. Sheer perfection, IMO.

That is a great one.

BLUE WORLD, along with BY BIZARRE HANDS (Lansdale) and NIGHT SHIFT (King), is one of my Top Three collections of all time.

I agree with Ron, one of the top collections I've read.

It is VERY good.  I still think that is easily one of the strongest, maybe the best of the Matt Corbett series

Jason

I strongly disagree, Speaks The Nightbird is a great book, but it is not the best of the series.

Well, I'm either then beginning a fantastic read, or one that is still great with even better to come.  Either way, sounds good to me!  Smiley

Finally found some time to make some headway in the book...a couple hundred pages in and loving so far.  I can see why the Corbett series has garnered so much affection and acclaim.

 Reading: Stuck near the end of CLIVE BARKER'S NEXT TESTAMENT....is it the fiction slump striking again, or is the book just trading water? I picked up Pat Patterson's ACCEPTED, the story of his career as an openly gay professional wrestler, and I can't turn the pages quick enough. Great read. On the comic-book front, I'm closing in on the end of ESSENTIAL IRON FIST, VOL. 1, which is a lot of fun. Review forthcoming.

 Watching: Took a few great naps during THE SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE (My wife LOVES The Smurfs...). Not terrible, just not my thing. I had a nice surprise the other night, when I found a new Jackie Chan film on HBO On Demand: The Dragon Blade. No dragons, no dragon blade, just a surprisingly touching historical action film which finds Chan teaming up with a lost Roman legion (Led by John Cusack!) on The Silk Road. Adrian Brody makes a fun scenery-chewing bad guy, the action is great, and there were a few unexpected plot twists along the way. I enjoyed this way more than I expected.

 Listening to: Rover's Morning Glory while working my hated job.....

MARS ONE reminds me a LOT of a Heinlein juvenile.

it's funny that you mention that, because I'm reading one of those right now, Starman Jones. haha.  I've read a few of them, but my favorite so far is Tunnel in the Sky

Starman Jones is a big favorite of mine. I just recently finished reading it aloud to Clara.
