Allan Guthrie is a busy man. When he’s not writing his own brilliant noir novels, editing and agenting for others, becoming an e-book bestselling writer etc, etc, he’s also blogging his ass off on several sites. Including the excellent Criminal-E, where he has very kindly interviewed me about crime writing, e-books and some other shit besides. Check it out here.
When I sent the replies to Al, he got back to me with ‘say what you think, Doug, why don’t you!’. I always worry about reactions like that. I once did a feature on writing for The List magazine, and the editor replied saying ‘very brave piece, Doug.’ To which I thought: ‘Shit, brave? Really? Shit, what does that mean? Career suicidally brave?’
It seems I like to mouth off. Ho hum.
