    Maybe it’s the people I hang with or I’m simply not paying attention, but Robert Silverberg never quite seems to get the attention he deserves.  I have a bookshelf full of his works, and as much as I like nearly everything he’s written, I think maybe it’s the lack of one killer, signature effort (like a 2001 from Clarke or some equally known Asimov yarn) that keeps him a bit below the radar.  Hardly any material’s been taken off the page and made it onto the little/big screen, either.

    Blood On The Mink sounds like an entirely different potboiler thriller.

    FURY! …flashed in the eyes of the crazed protestor!
    TERROR! …struck the heart of the stole-wearing socialite!
    CHAOS!… ensued as the guests at the charity ball found themselves drenched in red!

    Will his porn be reissued soon as well? Just asking for a friend, you know.

    I read Ray Bradbury’s three detective/mystery novels and I enjoyed them.  I may have to give Silverberg a try, once I read some of his SF works.

    Nice how while his gal-pal is laid out dying all he’s interested in is his “Look, I can grab boobies by radar!” party trick.

    This reminds me of the novel that Harris was perpetually writing in Barney Miller: “Blood on the Badge”

    That doesn’t look like mink to me, but I suppose they couldn’t really have called it Blood on the Beaver.
