A little pimpage

Russel D McLean

Shhhh...I'm doing things this week. Very complex, secret and involving things* which means that I can't delight you with my usual wit and insight. And I didn't even have time to go and beg a guest blogger. So instead, I'm going to give you some videos. Videos of fellow Scots crime writer - Irvine Welsh's favourite - Tony Black (who I believe may be making an appearance on this here blog very soon, so here's an appetizer for you...)

Tomorrow sees the official release date of Tony's latest novel, TRUTH LIES BLEEDING. Its the start of a new series for Tony, following his hugely succesful Gus Drury novels.

What? You don't know Gus?

Here's a little something about Gus's first appearance in PAYING FOR IT:



And here's a video created for LONG TIME DEAD:



And here's what I had to say on Tony's second novel, GUTTED.

Next week, normal service shall resume. And by normal service, I mean the usual rambling insanity.

*that sounds like a tease, and the likelihood is you'll never know what it is I'm doing but there we go...

Great post, Russel.

Tony is a terrific writer and I loved all four of the GD novels - I'm looking forward to TRUTH LIES BLEEDING.

Best, Alan.

I started TLB last night and it looks like it's going to be a good un!

I've got an interview with Tony coming up at Pulp Metal Magazine, hopefully this weekend.
