Sat up late last night, watching my favorite movie of all time, The
Maltese Falcon, and rereading John Maddox Roberts' Conan pastiche, Conan
the Rogue, which borrows the plots of Dashiell Hammett's novels, The
Maltese Falcon and Red Harvest, with a little of The Dain Curse toward
the end. If you've always wanted to see Conan play Sam Spade, this is
the book for you.
