My Movie Career

A while back a short film was made based on one of my old stories, "Graveyard Shift", which originally appeared in MIKE SHAYNE MYSTERY MAGAZINE and has since been anthologized a couple of times. The writer and director, Patrick Wager, has posted the film on YouTube and it can be seen here. With my steam-powered computer and tin-can-and-string Internet connection, I'm not going to try to download it, but I've asked my daughter to get it for me, so I'll probably see it in a few days. In the meantime, if you're interested it only runs about seven minutes, I think.

It was pretty good. But it would be hard to fail with such a good story. I hadn't read this one of yours before, but it's surely worth of anthologizing.

The director thanks Walter Wager. Is he related to the Walter Wager?

That was fun. I well remember reading the story back in the late '70s in MSMM.
