Welcome to the official Warren Murphy website!
First things first: Who is that masked man?
"The Alexander Dumas of the mystery genre, Warren Murphy is able to write prolifically to a standard of excellence and able to work with many and varied collaborators (or without them) in any subgenre of the mystery field yet maintain a distinctive voice...
"Murphy's work ranges from classic locked room mysteries to taut thrillers to the satire and raucous humor of The Destroyer and the Trace series...
"He has served as a mentor and teacher to a whole generation of crime and thriller writers."
From Prentice Hall's "Encyclopedia Mysteriosa"
And now a word from our sponsor:
What are all these people doing in my room?
Oh well, welcome. I'm glad you're here and sort of signing on as a partner in producing what is right now very much a work in progress. (Too often, I think "work in progress" means "Help! I don't have any clue on where I'm going." But that's not true here. I know where we're going.)
Pretty soon, we're going to be offering some new stories and content here and I hope all of you who've stuck with me all these years hang around to see how it all works out. Check out the "What's New" page to get an idea of what's going on and what is planned.
One of the things that's always been neat about going to writers' conventions over the years was running into people who had been collecting my books since the time of the flood and who come up with shopping bags full, to have them all signed. Well, until the last ink dries up in my pen, I'll be doing that again, so we'll be posting my travel schedule here also. Keep an eye on the "Events" page to see where I'll be.
And in the fall, in Virginia Beach where I live, I'll be starting some classes in writing the commercial novel. This info will also be found on the "Events" page. I hope I get a chance to meet some of you there face to face.
A lot of you have expressed concern about the fate of Remo and Chiun and The Destroyer series. Well, Gold Eagle is committed to publishing originals for the next 3 or 4 years so we're OK there; but to supplement what they do, we're going to start doing new Destroyer-type material right at this site. So check back often to see what's been going on.
May we all, as the Chinese say, live in interesting times.
And a message from The Master:
Is there no end to the wicked avarice of this fat scribbler? Not content with slandering me in books, in film, in television, in the unfunniest comic books ever foisted upon mankind, now he takes to cyberspace to commit even more atrocities upon my village and upon the glorious traditions of the House of Sinanju, all to satisfy his lust for gold, liquor and loose bovine women.
I have let this go on much too long. The creature must be stopped... before his ego and greed and stupidity consume us all.
And do not think you are blameless either. You must not encourage this nitwit any further. Fair warning.
