Gary Phillips...Ivan Monk Revisited
Over on Sarah's blog there is a discussion going on about basketball being led by guest blogger Jason Starr. In the thread I posted that I would want to be on the team opposite Gary Phillips.
In talking to Dennis McMillan, he tells me that he is putting out an anthology of Ivan Monk stories written by Phillips called Monkology next week. If you haven't read Monk before, you are in for a treat. If you have never seen a McMillan publication, you don't know what you're missing. Dennis publishes the highest quality, highly collectible limited editions around.
Here are the details from Dennis's site:
MONKOLOGY features thirteen tough tales about Los Angeles private investigator Ivan Monk, including an original novelette, The King Alfred Plan, written expressly for this collection.
In these stories you'll encounter starry-eyed sinners, street corner revolutionaries, Hollywood anglers, over-heated politicians, right wing assholes, a ghost or two, cavorting cops, architects with issues, flying saucers, and a little old lady with a pop gun, all out to make their mark in the city of dreams and despair.
