Some Reading Matter for the Next Trip...

Got a set of uncorrrected proofs from my pal Stephen Hunter's on new NON-FICTION book, AMERICAN GUNFIGHT: The Plot to Kill Harry Truman —and the Shoot-Out That Stopped It, co-written with John Bainbridge Jr.

I fully expect it to be brilliant, because I can't imagine Stephen doing anything less. He was telling me about this project last time we were together, which was, perhaps not surprisingly, at a funky bar in Virginia, within spitting distance of D.C. He said he needed a break from the oh-so-successful Bob the Nailer and family series.

"Aren't we writers a pathetic bunch?" Stephen told me. "I'm a successful novelist, and I want to write non-fiction. You're a successful non-fiction writer, and you want to write novels. Never happy!"

He's looking forward to doing a SHOOTING GALLERY, just for the heck of it.
