"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of The Big Reap, The Wrong Goodbye and Dead Harvest.

"Bagley's got the poet's eye, but that doesn't mean everything is prettier in his work. It means the ugly stuff is more vivid. More intense. Like a sudden switch from analog to HD. And that's a trait to very much admire in his work." --Anthony Neil Smith, author of Hogdoggin', Yellow Medicine, The Drummer and Psychosomatic.

The Road Goes on Forever

Over at Hardboiled Wonderland, Jed Ayres has been running a brilliant series of guest postings about crime songs. My little contribution, in which I talk about Robert Earl Keen's "The Road Goes on Forever," went up yesterday. Hope you guys like it. Thanks, Jed, for letting me sit in.
