ALAN FURST, MASTER HISTORICAL WWII SPY NOVELIST. He wasn’t THERE. )WWII) So how does he do it?
HE DIDN'T DO IT LIKE JOSEPHINE TEY did, her book "DAUGHTER OF TIME" which is considered best MYSTERY EVER: PLOT: a pro cop but now a retired London detective is in hosp with leg in cast and does research on a past cold crime, but NOT REALLY. as KING RICHARD III ALMOST CERTAINLY seems to have murdered his brothers' SONS age 7. twin Heirs to the throne. This CASE IS NOT COLD; it was supposedly SOLVED 500 yrs ago as RICHARD wanted the throne. So he probably DID IT. Shakespeare thought so. The evidence that the detective finds (sick in BED MIND YOU) proves otherwise. I guess his secretary goes to library... We read pieces of research as we go thru novel --- VERY interesting & absolutely exonerates a 500 year old FELT-TO-BE CERTAINLY GUILTY MAN who was a monster in every other way. Probably best mystery i ever read. ALL MYSTERY SPECIALISTS agree on this too. NUMERO UNO# I put it above STIEG LARSSON.

DO THIS IN YOUR TOWN and & YOU WILL BE HOLLYWOOD BOUND! (*clickable URL!) And learn HOW TO START A COMEDY CO-Op in your living room. Remember, a good comedy routine can become a comic first person voice novella, not an AUTOBIOGRAPHY, not non fiction, but FICTIONALIZED.I was just telling a comedy club performer that her own, self-disparaging remark or pejorative for herself,” MY ROCK STAR LIFE” was hilarious. Be a superb title for a novella. She’s a Jewish spinster of 50. Bitter, smart, lives in a fascinating major American city. The milieu of comedy clubs is a novel one. Done twice in two films, but not in any novels I know of. Seek novel terrains

WRITING a LUCRATIVE “FLICK” with the information you have vs. WRITING AN ARTICLE THAT IS TAKEN SERIOUSLY.

Huh? 750 bucks and ‘in and out burger!’ (California vernacular as it’s a local burger chain.) Meaning ‘you’re over with in a second.’
