Diamondback Now Available for the Kindle
I'm happy to report that my novel DIAMONDBACK is now available on Amazon for the Kindle. For some reason the description of the book isn't showing up on the Amazon page, but this is a novel that I wrote back in the Eighties for a men's adventure line that collapsed before any of the books ever came out. (Livia and I wrote a romance novel that suffered the same fate, but it's lost now and will never see the light of day.) DIAMONDBACK has never been published until now, so it's a new book and a historical document at the same time. In going back over it to prepare this edition, I could see how much my writing has changed in some ways during the past thirty years, and how in other ways it's still very much the same. The most important thing, though, is that I still found this to be an entertaining, enjoyable book. The Kindle edition features a new introduction by Bill Crider and an afterword by me. I've always liked this novel, and I'm glad it's out there in the world at last.
