Wayne, I finished both of the Other RBP books, and I have an extra copy of Passport to Peril. If you would like me to mail it to you, please email me at lmchildress at eiu dot com with a mailing address. It's good. Nothing to say about our RBP. Apologies for railroading this place for something else. Will not happen again. Waiting for things to come out in paperback... more or less patiently.

I got both Passport to Peril and Ticket to Oblivion, which is another TORBP wrote. I actually got TtO first, used from Amazon. It's not a bad little book. 50's type of espionage, Commies and all that, since it was the height of the Cold War. Good first person narrative and PtP looks like more of same. To stay on topic, ie, This RBP, I discovered when I got PtP, that above the author name is the comment "the Original Robert B. Parker." This is goofy and manipulative because the old paperback of TtO has the author as Robert Parker, no B. That was obviously added for this Hard Case edition, simply to capitalize on our man. Wonder if he could sue, although, really, I guess all publicity is good.

Other RBP, that should say....

I will. It's supposed to be coming to me any day now, via Amazon Marketplace. No place else seems to have it yet. The RBP wrote a couple of other books too. I ordered one from AM (the other two are currently oop). So, we'll see.

Wayne, I ordered Passport to Peril from Amazon the other day, since it is now available. I can't wait to see what this RBP is like. I wonder if he ever wrote any other books. BTW, do you look anything like Wayne Rogers from MASH? Just curious, he was one of my favorites. :o)

Hi, there! I love your books. All of them. I read the first Spenser about 25 years ago, and then got the rest in publication order. Love Spenser and Susan. Don't listen to the idiots who think you should dump her. No way! I add my name to the list wanting another Sunny Randall. I am ambivalent about her and Jesse getting together... I think he is too hung up on his ex to ever commit and she deserves better... like her own book. ;o) I have to ask this. Are you aware that there is a book called Passport to Peril by another Robert B. Parker, who died in 1955, which is supposed to come out in the Hard Case series? I saw that and thought it was you. Of course, Amazon is making no effort to disabuse people of that notion.... I'll probably buy it if it ever comes out, just to compare, but someone needs to get the word out that it isn't you. Thanks for everything, all the books and stay healthy and write just as long as you want to. I'll keep buying them!
