May Birthdays.

Okay, so I’m a little late with this, as the month steadily moves towards its completion. (And what’s with this weather??? It’s like May thinks it’s February or something!)

Sir Author Conan Doyle, May 22. Have a shot of cocaine and grab the shag tobacco from the Arabian slipper hanging from the mantle!

Robert Ludlum, May 25. Have a black turtleneck on me!

Dashiell Hammett, May 27. What can you say? The man who changed crime writing. Sam Spade. The Thin Man. ‘Nuff said.

Ian Fleming, May 28. Have a martini, shaken, not stirred! Mind the cigarette lighter that’s also a nuke!

Walt Whitman, May 31. What, you say? A poet!?!? I know, but man… I love his poetry. Just beautiful stuff.

  1. That’s a pretty powerful list of writers. It’s always interesting to see how birthdays can clump together.

  2. Yeah, I agree. I’m going to be doing this every month for the rest of the year.

  3. Don’t forget Peter Benchley, May 8th. He’s best known for ‘Jaws,’ of course, but his ‘Girl of the Sea of Cortez’ was a much better book. If you can find it, you should read it – it’s as if you’re swimming in the ocean, but the sharks are not the bad guys.
