Hucks: Sharing An Ink-Stained Past

What do Jess Walter, Richard Miller and Dan Kolbet have in common? Hint: They are ex-Spokesman-Review staffers. And? They’ve all written books. Walter, of course, parlayed his reporting of the August 1992 Ruby Ridge siege into a book (“Every Knee Shall Bow”) and a TV miniseries. He’s now penned seven books, with the last one, “The Financial Lives of the Poets,” receiving national acclaim. Kolbet, an Avista spokesman, worked in the sports department. Now, he’s written “Off the Grid,” a futuristic thriller about a man who fights a power monopoly that decides which cities are blacked out and which aren’t. Miller, a former editor now handling Washington State University public relations, has just published an anti-vampire-genre novel about a 150-year-old vampire living in downtown Spokane, “All You Can Eat.” No Team Edward versus Team Jacob going on here/DFO, Huckleberries.

Question: Have you read any of Jess Walter's books? Thoughts?

Ex-SR Editor Pens Anti-Vampire Book

The protagonist in Pullman author Richard H. Miller's first novel enjoys living a seemingly normal life in his luxurious downtown Spokane condominium. He likes to read, watch the Nature channel and drink red wine. He meets the women he dates through the Internet. He contemplates Nietzsche's personal life and whether Velcro is better than buttons. He also is a 150-year-old vampire. Miller will be signing his novel, “All You Can Eat” from 5-7 Friday at Hastings in Moscow. The author's first novel was released in October by Gray Dog Press of Spokane. Miller began with writing short stories. “Then I found out there wasn't much money in that, so I decided to write a novel. I gave myself permission to write something bad,” said Miller (a former editor with The Spokesman-Review)/Caitlin Cole, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.
