“I will never understand why anybody who’s having so precious little fun here on earth is so damned intent on living forever.”
G.M. Ford, Cast In Stone

“Buddy eyed me closely. His eyes were filigreed with red. I watched as he went through one of those instantaneous mood swings that only drunks and menstruating women can manage.”
G.M. Ford, Who in Hell Is Wanda Fuca?

“Where’s Nadine?” “She went out for a walk the other day and didn’t come back.” “Really.” I tried to sound surprised. “No sweat,” he said. “Pussy may well be the only true renewable resource, Leo. I’ve got another one lined up for when I get back.” I had to admire a man with that kind of insight and planning.”
G.M. Ford, Who in Hell Is Wanda Fuca?

G.M. Ford Thanks for the kind words.

message 1: by Bill

Bill Taylor I am about to finish the 3rd Corso novel and have definitely become a G M Ford fan. I have already ordered the first 2 of the Leo Waterman books from our library. A small town library makes it necessary to order some books not in stock, and then they have them sent from other libraries all over the state of Ohio. As much as I read it is necessary to get my books from the library, as a fixed retirement income does not allow all the luxuries one might wish for.
