Podcast Episode


Stephen Murray is a Las Vegas author with roots in England and Southern Africa. Stephen is the author of four self-published novels covering multiple genres. He is a partner in a computer software development and support company, which he originally founded in California in 1982. He has traveled extensively throughout the world, visiting 40 countries. Apart from writing, Stephen enjoys music, theatre and current affairs.

His latest novel is entitled Discreetly Yours


Frankie had it coming. As owner of the most exclusive escort agency in Las Vegas, he had crossed the line more than once with his “Babes.” But this time was the last time, especially for Satin, Ruby and Goldie – his A Team. Could they mastermind the perfect crime to get rid of Frankie? Could it be considered justifiable homicide if they were caught? Or could they actually get away with murder? They were never his to begin with, but if Frankie was out of the picture, they could be Discreetly Yours.

Book review: The Black Lizard Big Book Of Pulps, edited by Otto Penzler

Today I am here to review a very long, but very good anthology that I finished a few days ago. This book is called The Black Lizard big Book of Pulps, and it was edited by Otto Penzler. Although this talking book was over 75 hours long, the stories, novellas and the full length novel were rivitting. There were a few stories that I didn’t like, because of the way they were written, or because I just didn’t get the concept, however, many of these stories were the inspiration that has kept me going during NaNoWriMo.
Not only were the stories by authors like Earl Stanly Gardner, Raymond Chandler, and other great pulp writers of the 1920s 30s and 40s outstanding works of nnoire fiction, but I want to publicly thank Ray Foushee, a narrator from The American Printing House for the Blind, for doing an outstanding job with the narration of this book, including the fabulous description of the Sally the Slooth comic strips found in the Dames section of the anthology.
When you read the first comic strip you need to pay attention, or you may think you’re reading one thing when the character is saying something else entirely. Happy reading, and have a fun filled mystery solving day.
