Hard Case Crime news – 5/21/10 (part 2)

Continued from Part 1. My thoughts below.

One other bit of news, and it’s a big one: Our best-selling title of all time, Stephen King’s THE COLORADO KID, is about to become a TV series!  The show is called “Haven,” and it debuts on July 9 on SyFy (the network formerly known as The Sci-Fi Channel).  In New York, it airs at 10PM; not sure what time it’s on in other parts of the country, but check your listings.  It’ll also be shown outside the U.S., so wherever you are, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to watch it.  The series expands on the story of the book, introducing a new main character (an FBI agent with a mysterious past), but you’ll see as the series unfolds that the central mysteries of the book are very much at the heart of the TV show as well.  There’s a brief video up on SyFy’s Web site if you want to get a taste of the show: you can find it by going to http://www.syfy.com/haven/ and clicking on the video link on the right side of the screen that’s labeled “Haven – Everyone’s Hiding Something.”  I’m fortunate to be working on the show as a writer and producer and am very excited about how it’s coming out.  There are some terrific stories hidden in the town of Haven, Maine, and week by week we’ll do our best to bring them to you.

We’ve got more big developments in the works that I’m itching to tell you about…but those are still in the works, so we’ll save them for a future update.  In the meantime, please do grab a copy of NOBODY’S ANGEL — and when July 9 rolls around, please tune in to SyFy and join me in watching Hard Case Crime’s television debut!

Many thanks,
Charles Ardai
Editor, Hard Case Crime

As regular readers may recall, I didn’t much care for this book. However, I did like the characters and the setting. There’s no reason the series can’t be a success. Best of luck to Hard Case Crime and Syfy on this new venture.
