Back after long absence, with an update. "Resolution," the sequel to "Appalooosa" came out in June. The newest Spenser, "Rough Weather" will be out in October, and "Appaloosa," the movie, has had its world premier at the Toronto Film Festival, then limited release in Boston, New York, and LA. It will appear nationally, at a theater near you, starting October 3rd when it goes into geneal release. I had no part in the movie other than to sell them my book. But I promise you, you will like it. It is a magnificent film. Check the court room scene for Daniel T. Parker, as the lawyer. If you liked the book you will love the movie. If you hated the book. . . why the hell are you reading my blog? I'll be back soon with responses to some of your input. But in the mean time,go sox!
