this video that James Reasoner has posted on his blog. (And if you're not a fan of Westlake, why not?) Although he started out in science fiction, he made his mark in mystery and crime writing. I've only read a small portion of his work (the man was prolific), but I've never read a bad book by him, whether one of the comic caper novels or one of his darker crime novels, such as the Parker novels under the name Richard Stark. Tomorrow would have been his 79th birthday. His final novel, The Comedy is Finished, was recently published by Hard Case Crime.
