RAT PACK REVUE . . . ROBERT J RANDISI TAKES THE STAGE

"Well fly me to the moon
  and let me play 
among the  stars  
 
 LOOK!
Here comes a 
shining one now!"

Luscious Ladies
and Jivin' Gents

It's my high honour
to introduce and present
a prolific favourite Author
amongst all authors ~
       

DAPPER IS AS DAPPER DOES
Almost the only man to ever beat me in a football bet, and the very one who came investigating quite recently AT THE BIJOU seeing the RAT PACK ponder precisely what kind of Mystery man he was . . . (right here)

RJR over there is gonna tell us more and more in RatPack lore while some fave and debut authors AT THE BIJOU hep the RAT PACK right along with this cool cat. A ring-a-ding-ding!

And get this ~ He said I could call him "Bob"
( or even "pally" )

Man oh man,
am I flyin' high

Here -- Meet this 
ROBERT J RANDISI
author guy,
stunning creator of the
RAT PACK MYSTERIES,
and perhaps 530 or 540 books

(I didn't check this morning's count)

       


True, he's got a lot to say about what he writes.

Watch for our Author-to-Author interview queries
and how he makes points with his sharp theories.
 
       
 
True, he created and directs 
The Private Eye Writers of America, co-created Mystery Scene Magazine, co-founded the American Crime Writers League, and concepted the prestigious Shamus Award.


I call him the "Godfather of Gumption & Gumshoe", 
but I wonder if he has time between writings to know that.


       
 
True, he has pseudonyms for genre and genre for pseudonyms, and is hailed as "the last great pulp writers".
 
We'll share RJR's oeuvre prolifics of novels, shorts and collabs in crime, mystery, horror, thriller, western, science fiction and even an erotic tome or two.

       

And True
he's talking keen to us
in the very next post 
'bout his love for these
RAT PACK fellas
today (and through the next few weeks)

RATPACKREVUE 
AT THE BIJOU

(c)2010 from the Absolutely*Kate Presents series
gettin' by with some help from BIJOU author-pals
a little RatPack personna lyrics
and a whole lotta excitement swirlin' about this great show.

RJR Photo by Amy Sprandel
"Fly Me To The Moon" lyrics I was crooning
was written as "In Other Words" by Bart Howard in 1954.
Kaye Ballard, Johnny Mathis, Eydie Gorme, Nancy Wilson,
Peggy Lee, Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughn, Mel Torme, Connie Francis,
Jack Jones, Shirley Bassey, Patti Page and Perry Como gave it a whirl
til FRANK recorded it in '64 with Count Basie putting out ambiance.


Ahhhh Frank .... Ahhhh Dean . . . .
But let's see what Robert J Randisi has to say ~

Most Cool! Bob is one of the best and his Rat Pack mysteries are top drawer . . .

Hey there Mr Bishop --- I've heard about you (lot of canaries 'round the Lounge Lizard SupperClubs, y'know). And I know it certainly takes one to know one -- in the cool cats department that is.

Bob, Mr Randisi, RJR and my new 'pally' is most certainly top drawer, top shelf, top o'the heap of an edge of writing you just wanta hold on to ... and then find the next. (Fortunately, his prolifics make that possible - a boon to bookshelf carpenters as well.)

THANK*YOU so much for bringing your own particular razz-a-ma-tazz 'round here AT THE BIJOU. We've got quite a RAT PACK REVUE continuing over the next few weeks that I think an afficiando of your caliber will dig. So find yourself a red velvet seat to call your own, and - hey, you seem like a swell joe -- the popcorn's on the house.

I'm sure Frank didn't expect less from Skinny. What a cool story!
