    Those of you who read my novel CROOKED LITTLE VEIN will hopefully remember Falconer, the weird "detective" whom Mike McGill meets on a plane. Falconer actually started out as a character whom I wrote flash-fictions around as warm-up exercises. If you never read my LiveJournal, then you probably never saw Falconer.

    Oh god I haven't read CLV yet, but now that I know Falconer's in it, I have to buy it. Arrgh

    (Thanks for linking these, re-reading them is a delight.)

    I remember being delightfully surprised when Falconer showed up in Crooked...

    Likewise, thanks for linking these.

    Come to think of it, didn't another of your flash fictions become the opening to Angel Stomp Future? Been a while since I've read it, so I suppose I could be imagining that one...

    How often does a one-off, warm-up type of thing grip on to the grey matter until it is granted a resurfacing?

    (That last bit maybe should have been saved for the interrogation thread.)

    Stabbity Jones made it into Thunderbolts.

    More on topic, my friend didn't believe me that a detective could solve a case by putting a penis in his mouth. Thank you for proving him wrong.

    It's quite a trip, going from reading the actual sherlock holmes just an hour ago to reading these. These are funny.

    Thanks for linking these. I'd only seen the "Red Shoes" one before.

    wow, they're great.

    Mr. Ellis... you left out one that came a few months after the rest:

    A Little Light Falconer


    Is it sad that I recognized that nearly right away?

    Thank you.

    1984.
    wondered who he was.
    flash fiction? is that like automatic writing? sure feels like it.

    I'm not sure I'll ever be the same as I was before reading that. I find nothing wrong with that fact.
  7.  (1686.15)
    Ah, thanks for that. Loved the character in CLV but didn't know about these. I will devour with pleasure and, probably, some disgust.

    You should have him sodomised by heavily medicated weasels immediately


    Heh.

    Let's not forget the Vale of Tears chronicles?

    Hm. Perhaps one day the Falconer will have to instigate investigate something in the Vale of tears. And in the vein of cheesy 70s/80s American TV detective shows, there'll be a" Special Guest Star," Mister Ramp!

    Falconer should be ITV's next post-Morse hit cop show - and in a sane world, already would be.

    Funny, I just read these while going through your LJ archives. Speaking of which:

    How often does a one-off, warm-up type of thing grip on to the grey matter until it is granted a resurfacing?


    I read one of his flash-fics, just before the Falconer ones that featured the couple trying to feel each other's heartbeats from the first issue of Doktor Sleepless.
