The Ballad of Johnny Pharaoh
Blog Post by Craig Clevenger - Jan.20.2009 - 11:27 am
This is what I sound like after a two-week chest cold and several days locked in the writing pit without using my voice. Seth Harwood invited me to join the likes of Scott Phillips, Eddie Muller, David Corbett, Vicki Hendricks, Jason Starr and Michael Connelly, to name a few, in reading for his weekly crime fiction podcast. A full recording of The Numbers Game from the forthcoming San Francisco Noir 2: The Classics is now online at crimewav.com. Funny thing, Seth's been doing this for a while, broadcasting some serious neo-noir fiction, but he says The Numbers Game is "the darkest of the dark." Mighty kind of you, Seth. Once more, I'll be reading at the Mechanics' Institute this Thursday, Jan.22, and signing books at Noir City 7 on Saturday, Jan 31 at 6:30. Stay warm and bound, ~Craig
