Underground Reading: Pale Gray for Guilt by John D. MacDonald
Underground Reading: The Girl in the Plain Brown Wrapper by John D. MacDonald

The audience for The Cold Commands is the same audience it’s been for every other book I’ve ever written – Me.

Previously I was writing the noir-inflected SF I wanted to read; right now I’m writing the noir-inflected Sword and Sorcery I want to read; Market Forces was the fuel-injected near-future dystopian satire I wanted to read, Black Widow was the feminist comic-book taking-to-task of cardboard superhero patriarchy that I wanted to read…

You’ll begin to see the pattern, right?
