Mexico has come a long way from when I was there and read Proceso, La Jornada and Unomasuno and watched journalists like Julio Scherer Garcia tell the "painful truths" of those days. In that chapter in my book I did on him and Mexican journalism, he wasn't sure the fight for more press freedom would be won, but clearly there have been many victories since then. And I, like he was then, am hopeful.(less)

I have no plans for a follow-up nonfiction book, but I am finishing up a spy novel that has some scenes in Mexico that draw from what I learned living there. I'm calling it The Sleeper List. I hope to have it out perhaps by spring of 2015. It will be my third novel.(less)

a nice review of my comic thriller The Commuter by Floyd M. Orr, who focuses on print-on-demand paperbacks. He has an extensive comment on amazon.com on the novel. Here's the meat of the review:
The Commuter was definitely a fun book to read. Unlike a few other descriptions of the plot I have read, I did not find the story funny or the lead character a hapless dupe. Although Barnaby Gilbert is... Read more of this blog post »

Patrick Oster is finished with Lolita: Great book. Glad my book club suggested it. not sure why I hadn't read it before. Given Nabokov's fantastic language talents, this may be a book you should read on an e-reader with the handy look-up dictionary feature. Helps if you speak a little French, but not fatal if you don't. Not as dirty as you might think. Wonderful voice by the pervert main character.At times you can be almost sympathetic.
