    I think the first Winslow book I read was The Winter of Frankie Machine, and I was hooked. Every book I read by him was fantastic, so when The Force was coming out, I ordered a signed copy. That book read like he wrote it in a week to fulfill a contract. It was just awful. I wanted to throw the book across the room when he had native New Yorkers saying things like "Take the 95 North to the 4 West". No one outside of SoCal would ever say "the 95", or "the 4". He also pulled in every cop cliche ever written.

    Everything since then has been up to his usual high standard, so I'm looking forward to reading City of Fire.

    Would love to hear a review of this once you have read it. That blurb from the intro by Michael Marshall Smith has me very close to picking this one up.

    Thanks and congrats to you as well. Looking forward to reading this story. I somehow forgot all about this series and didn't get in on the Thunderstorm series.

    Larry Hama only signs in person, not throught the mail, but he does make regular convention appearances. Mike Zeck was also making regular appearances before the pandemic and I met him several times, most recently in 2019 right before COVID hit. I have no idea about Rod Whigham.

    Best of luck with your quest!
    I was excited about Larry Hama coming to the Denver con in 2020 so I'm hoping he'll return. I'd even drive as far as Salt Lake (since it's not THAT far.) My wife did ask if I wanted to go to Emerald City Comic Con this year, but it's hard to justify that expense. It looks like we will be heading to Denver's this July because one of the voice actors there did a voice on My Little Pony and my wife hasn't met him yet.

    Hopefully MIke Zeck will begin to make appearances again in-person.

    Oh and great photo!

    In 2020 before the world ended, Larry Hama, the writer, was going to be in Denver at the Denver Pop Culture Con, but we all know how 2020 went. Mike Zeck - cover artist - doesn't seem to be doing any signings or anytjhing other than weird Instagram "auctions". Rod Whigham - pencils - no clue about. He has an LinkedIn page but I don't want to stalk him there.
