of interest to writers

via Terry Teachout, an audio recording of Ian Fleming and Raymond Chandler, talking about writing thrillers.

The creators of James Bond and Philip Marlowe, folks. According to Teachout, it's the only known recording of Chandler's voice. (Teachout is disappointed that Chandler doesn't sound more like he'd imagined Marlowe's voice.)

As a long-time fan of both the Bond books and The Big Sleep & The Long Goodbye, I'm really looking forwards to listening to this.

This goes on Ipod as soon as I get home. I've been on a MASSIVE spy/detective kick of late, more so than usual thanks to some fandom I got dragged into. I've actually been about to reread the Ian Fleming books I own (for maybe the 8th time?) and see if I can finally finish my collection of the Bond books. As for Chandler - I found some amazing BBC productions of Farewell My Lovely, Lady in the Lake, The Big Sleep, The High Window, The Little Sister, and The Long Goodbye. Does anyone know if any of the Bond books were done into radio dramas? I'd seriously kill for those.
