Victor Gischler is Taking over Hollywood
So, is it three screenplays Victor Gischler has optioned recently? Seriously, I've lost count. First, he announced that Go-Go Girls of The Apocalypse had been optioned. Then he announced that Pulp Boy, which he has co-written with Anthony Neil Smith had been optioned. And now I see that the adaptation of Gun Monkeys is set to be directed by up and coming Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura. Someone's having a pretty good month. Will he move to Hollywood? Become notorious after he's a passenger in a car driven through a mall food court by a visibly intoxicated Lindsey Lohan? Will he replace Quentin Tarantio as Hollywood's writer of choice for over-the-top action films? Let's hope so. Gischer's stories tend to have a plot, which is more than you can say for Kill Bill.
Welcome to the Indie Crime Blog. As the name implies, this blog is dedicated to reviews of crime fiction published by independent presses. There are many books published every year that seem to be ignored for a variety of reasons. The books sections of newspapers are getting smaller. Bookstores give more shelf space to more established authors. I could go on, but you get it.My intent is to review books both old and new in the hopes that some deserving writers and worthy publishers will gain some exposure.
