A velvet fist in an iron glove.
Since most pizza delivery guys I've encountered seem certifiably insane...I say rock on.
Jen, I used to do that for a living, then to get out of debt. (Didn't work eithertime.) You HAVE to do this one. You HAVE to.Yeah, it's a hafta, but I can tell you wanna. (Yeesh! I'm quoting my self.)In fact, the next standalone I'm planning involves pizza delivery. And so muchmore. It may be the first book to get me sued for libel. Heh-heh-heh!Do it. Beg, whine, plead with the Bleakhouse people. Barrage Johnny Temple with emails. Tell Otto Penzler it won't have an ounce of cozy in it.
Do you accept reprints? I just happen to have got a pizza delivery guy story.
Count me in, if only to indulge my love for 80s Patrick Dempsey movies.
I say go for it as well.
Some guy orders Chicago style and gets thin crust instead. Yeah. I can see how that could lead to some serious mayhem.Sauce everywhere.
If I could get a single synapse to fire I'd have so damn many funny things to say. Pretty much filled my clever quota just coming up with the idea. Now... supine for the spine.Oh.Magazine deadline.Guess not!But I'm not bitter.No.I'm not bitter.The hell I'm not!Wham!(I just knocked myself over a cliff and into a gulley with brackish water that has instantly stinkified me so badly that even mothballs smell good by comparison.)
I used to deliver pizzas in college. You know how glamorous they make it seem in porn films? Yeah, it's just like that.Love the idea. When are you accepting submissions?
It almost writes itself. Cash-based business, moving target, fungible product...but what I really want to see is DRYCLEANING NOIR.
Just wondering - will this be open or by invitation only?
Did someone say Pizza?I love Pizza
Will it be restricted to pizza - or will any form of home-delivered fast food comestibles be acceptable?
L.T Fawkes has already been there and done that, unfortunately.
Drycleaning Noir... I used to live upstairs from a drycleaner. Lemme tell ya: it's more noir than you think down there with the chemicals and the wire coat hangers....
But, my dear Jeff, Fawkes didn't have a title like, "The Pizza Guy Cometh".Stuart, all pizza, all the time like my brother Jon's diet in the 90's.Oh, the marketing possibilities!
