The boys will definitely be back one day! And "one day" is finally starting to look like it's coming closer. If all goes according to plan, I might have something to announce by the end of the year....

I hear you, D. I think the Nick and Tesla books are pretty fun, but they're definitely aimed at the middle-school set. I've been meaning to bring Big Red and Old Red back for a while now, but the timing was never right. It looks like two major roadblocks will finally be behind me soon, though. Stay tuned!

That's it exactly, Sue -- I do O.K. at signings and such, but I'm not exciting enough to rate network air-time. I had a chance to get on Craig Ferguson's show years ago, but I didn't make it past a screening call from an assistant booker. He told me "Don't try to be funny," which really threw me. I mean, I get it -- Ferguson's the funnyman -- but it left me not knowing how to *be*. Hi ho. At least now I'm part of a team that's half telegenic!

Thanks, David! I used to be a one-man interpretive dance, so it sounds like I'm headed in the right direction.

Sorry to leave you hanging, Ted! Believe me -- *I* wish I'd had time to bring Big Red and Old Red back, as well. Wheels are in motion, though. The Amlingmeyers will return one day. And when that day finally arrives, I'll be able to explain why it took so long to get here!

Sorry to keep you (and Big Red and Old Red) waiting so long, D! Hang in there. You'll get your Holmes on the Range fix eventually....

Thanks, Amy! Hopefully someone will review the book via carved turkey just in time for Thanksgiving.

Nice title! I'd hate to suggest that readers would go broke if they bought all my stuff, though. Really, folks -- I might be putting a lot of books out in the next 12 months, but most of you can comfortably afford it all!

OMG, Marge! What happened? You were about to tell us who Don Draper looks like, but you were mysteriously cut off. And right after mentioning crazy-creepy organ music! This is freaking me out! Did The Ghost get you?

Absolutely! I'll be flooding the world with "Look at me!"s in the weeks leading up to July, when the book hits stores. And I can announce here and now that CRACK is finally, officially finished (as of yesterday -- yeeehaa!) and Posse/e-newsletter members will be getting a sneak preview in their Christmas stocking very, very soon. -Steve
I actually tried to work the Lady Luck line into THE BLACK DOVE -- I think it was even in an early draft. And then it got cut again! Maybe the third time's the charm. As for phrenology, I'm sure that'll make a comeback, too, at some point. I love the idea of a supposedly brilliant detective -- a CSI guy of his time -- raving away about how the murderer couldn't have done it because his brow ridge isn't pronounced enough.... -Steve
Your wish is our command, guys. We probably can't swing director's cut editions of the books, but hey -- what better repository (or dumping ground) for deleted material than a blog? Check out Big Red's latest entry for some never-printed blasts from the past. -Steve
