Enjoy two detective episodes of Sam Spade A) 6/20/48 The Deathbed Caper w/ Howard Duff B) 9/12/48 The Lazarus Caper w/ Howard Duff The detective character, Sam Spade, was created by Dashiell Hammett for his crime novel “The Maltese Falcon.” Spade was a hard-boiled detective with cold detachment, a keen eye for detail and unflinching determination to achieve his own justice. The character is most closely associated with Humphrey Bogart who played Sam Spade in the third and most famous film version of “The Maltese Falcon.” In 1946, one of radio's top producers (William Spier) brought Sam Spade to CBS radio starring newcomer Howard Duff with Lurene Tuttle (and occasionally Sandra Gould) as Spade's secretary, Effie Perrine and sponsored by Wildroot Cream Oil. Duff took a considerably more tongue-in-cheek approach to the character than the novel or movies. Dashiell Hammett lent his name to the radio series but had little involvement. In 1947, scriptwriters Jason James and Bob Tallman received an Edgar Award for Best Radio Drama from the Mystery Writers of America. Howard Duff starred as Spade until November of 1950 when Steve Dunne took the role.

There's no question that The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is one of the most influential texts of all time. The now-iconic tale, which has confounded and thrilled readers for more than a century, was described by one scholar as the only detective-crime story in which the solution is more terrifying than the problem. And even as its plot gets continually reinterpreted and reimagined in literature, film, and theater, the main themes persist, as do the titular characters, now so familiar as to have become a part of the English language.This new edition gives the classic tale of depraved murder and unrelenting horror its most complete and illuminating presentation yet. Heavily illustrated with over a hundred and fifty full color images from the history of this cultural touchstone—including reproductions of rare books, film stills, theatrical posters, and the true-life people associated with the adventure—and extensively annotated by Edgar Award winning editor and noted Victorian literature expert Leslie S. Klinger, this thorough and authoritative approach is both an invaluable resource for scholars and a sumptuous treat for fans of the text.Introduced by a compelling and erudite essay from bestselling novelist and short story writer Joe Hill, this complete illustrated and annotated edition of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is the ultimate tribute to an enduring classic, combining revelatory and surprising information and in-depth historical context with beautiful illustrations and photographs.

It won the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation and the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Episodic Drama on Television.At the Hugos he dedicated the award to “the memory of the script they butchered, and in respect to those parts of it that had the vitality to shine through the evisceration.”Ellison sold scripts to a lot of TV shows in the 60s, The Flying Nun, Burke's Law, Route 66,The Outer Limits,The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Cimarron Strip, and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.A word used frequently to describe Ellison was cantankerous. He was hired as a writer for Walt Disney Studios, but was fired on his first day after Roy O. Disney overheard him in the studio commissary joking about making a pornographic animated film featuring Disney characters.Ellison settled out of court over allegations that James Cameron had plagiarized elements of his work in writing the screenplay for The Terminator; and he once sent a dead gopher to a publisher who violated a clause in his contract.And then there was the time in the 60s he was nose to nose in an argument with Frank Sinatra which nearly led to physical blows. The altercation, which started when the always impeccably dressed Sinatra didn't like the boots Ellison was wearing, was short, lasting only about 3 minutes before Ellison walked away. In 2013 Ellison admitted he kept the boots preserved in a plastic bag in his closet.Harlan Ellison was cantankerous; he was talented, and he wrote more than science fiction. He won 8 Hugo Awards, four Nebula Awards, two Edgar Awards from the Mystery Writers of America and 5 Bram Stoker Awards from the Horror Writers Association.A writer for more than 60 years Harlan Ellison died at his home in Los Angeles in 2018 at the age of 84.From the February 1956 edition of Infinity Science Fiction, Glow Worm by Harlan Ellison… Next week on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast… From Chaos a space-consuming creature reachedslimy tentacles toward trembling planets.

Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller!Michael Mann, four-time-Oscar-nominated writer-director of The Last of the Mohicans, The Insider, Ali, Miami Vice, Collateral, and Heat teams up with Edgar Award–winning author Meg Gardiner to deliver Mann's first novel, an explosive return to the universe and characters of his classic crime film—with an all-new story unfolding in the years before and after the iconic movie“Heat 2 is now one of my favorite suspense novels. . . . I'm already quoting lines from Heat 2 to my writer friends (shamelessly saying the lines are mine).” – James PattersonOne day after the end of Heat, Chris Shiherlis (Val Kilmer) is holed up in Koreatown, wounded, half delirious, and desperately trying to escape LA. Hunting him is LAPD detective Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino). Hours earlier, Hanna killed Shiherlis's brother in arms Neil McCauley (De Niro) in a gunfight under the strobe lights at the foot of an LAX runway. Now Hanna's determined to capture or kill Shiherlis, the last survivor of McCauley's crew, before he ghosts out of the city.In 1988, seven years earlier, McCauley, Shiherlis, and their highline crew are taking scores on the West Coast, the US-Mexican border, and now in Chicago. Driven, daring, they're pulling in money and living vivid lives. And Chicago homicide detective Vincent Hanna—a man unreconciled with his history—is following his calling, the pursuit of armed and dangerous men into the dark and wild places, hunting an ultraviolent gang of home invaders.Meanwhile, the fallout from McCauley's scores and Hanna's pursuit cause unexpected repercussions in a parallel narrative, driving through the years following Heat.Heat 2 projects its dimensional and richly drawn men and women into whole new worlds—from the inner sanctums of rival crime syndicates in a South American free-trade zone to transnational criminal enterprises in Southeast Asia. The novel brings you intimately into these lives. In Michael Mann's Heat universe, they will confront new adversaries in lethal circumstances beyond all boundaries.Heat 2 is engrossing, moving, and tragic—a masterpiece of crime fiction with the same extraordinary ambitions, scope, and rich characterizations as the epic film.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/writers-on-film.

About David Bell: David is the USA Today-bestselling author of twelve novels from Berkley/Penguin, including THE FINALISTS, KILL ALL YOUR DARLINGS, THE REQUEST, and LAYOVER. His work has been translated into numerous foreign languages, included on several bestseller lists, nominated for the Pushcart Prize five times, and, recently his thirteenth novel, KILL ALL YOUR DARLINGS, was nominated for a 2022 Edgar Award.  In this episode, Mike and David discuss:  Why David blames his parents for becoming a bestselling author.  Reading as the best teacher of the craft of writing.  How David's career influenced his latest book, The Finalists.  The impact of childhood stories on other stories in our lives.  Key Takeaways:  Not all authors are dead! Many are attempting to make a living doing it now, and you can too.  Succeeding young in writing is rare. Many publish their first books, and become accomplished writers, in their 30s or 40s or even later.  While writing itself is a solitary process, the book and the publishing of that book is a team effort to get that book out in the world.  It is going to take time - you don't play an instrument perfectly when you first pick it up, and you also won't write the perfect novel the first time you pick up a pen.  "Enjoy the day-to-day process of writing the book. Enjoy the day-to-day process of a book coming out. Yes, you're responsible for a lot of what happens and you can't just abdicate responsibility to publishing for promoting the book, but try to enjoy the ride." – David Bell Buy The Finalists Amazon: https://amzn.to/3yQWA9r Bookshop.org: https://bookshop.org/a/54587/9780593198698 Connect with David Bell: Website: https://davidbellnovels.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/davidbellnovels/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DavidBellNovels Twitter: https://twitter.com/DavidBellNovels Connect with Mike Carlon: Website: https://uncorkingastory.com/ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSvS4fuG3L1JMZeOyHvfk_g Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/uncorkingastory/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/uncorkingastory Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/uncorkingastory LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/uncorking-a-story/

Award-winning showrunner, filmmaker and bestselling novelist Noah Hawley (creator of FX's Fargo and Legion) speaks with Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, about Hawley's sixth and newest novel Anthem, a thoughtful and entertaining cultural commentary for the real world we live in that examines a plethora of ongoing issues ranging from political divisions to climate change -- all in Hawley's uniquely incisive voice. With Anthem, Hawley faced his most challenging writing yet -- putting a level of hindsight to something where the ink wasn't dry yet, or as he says, “If my job as a writer is to recreate the real world around me, then what do I do when the real world around me becomes ridiculous?” Hawley ranks among the most prolific and accomplished writers working between page and screen – having won both an Emmy Award and Edgar Award, and Anthem has been discussed as an epic inventive literary thriller that is the first must read novel of the year.
