Andrew Klavan has announced the end of “Klavan on the Culture.” I’m not talking about his bitingly satirical videos he produces for PJTV. Nor is he stepping out of writing brief commentary on Al Gore’s invention. You can still find his opinion on cultural and political matters at the revamped AndrewKlavan.com. Rather, Andrew has stopped updated his Pajamas Media blog.
His run among the Pajamas Media bloggers may be ending, but that does not mean Andrew is slacking. Far from it. On the fiction side of things, his second book in the Homelanders series, The Long Way Home, will be released in February 2010. I’m diggin’ the summary:
Charlie West went to bed one night an ordinary high school student. He woke up a hunted man. Terrorists are trying to kill him. The police want to arrest him for the stabbing death of his best friend. He doesn’t know whose side he’s one or who he can trust. With his pursuers closing in on every side, Charlie makes his way back to his hometown to find some answers. There, holed up in an abandoned mansion, he’s joined by his friends in a desperate attempt to discover the truth about a murder he can’t remember—and the love he can never forget.
A note for Mr. Klavan if he happens to stop by “The American Culture:” Hey, Andrew, bring the book tour up to Seattle. I’d be honored to shake your hand and thank you for a job well done on the right side of the Cultural Influence Professions.
On the film side of things, I commented at the final Klavan on the Culture post, that I hope closing the blog means we will see more film projects; maybe an adaptation of his ghost story, The Uncanny, a thrilling and emotionally moving tale. I was not far off the mark hoping for a Klavan ghost story on the big screen.
At his rebooted website, Andrew announced that details are being worked out with Shoulderhill Entertainment on “an option of [his] ghost story screenplay, Bury The Dead.”
The script involves a young couple who get lost on a hiking trip and wander into a strange village where they witness a bizarre ritual.
Some thrilling fiction and possibly a ghost story on the big screen from one of the good guys, Andrew Klavan. Now how cool is that?
