This Salon article on the blurring of realities/worlds between the TV show and Elmore Leonard‘s latest novel, Raylan, also mentions that the fourth season hits the small screen today stateside.
2012 in Print
Yah, it’s the end of 2012 already so time for a quick blow-out.
Another average year in terms of quantity of reading. Texts, as you can see immediately below, were a bit on the thin side.
Other People’s Wars – Nicky Hager
Road Dogs – Elmore Leonard
Ongoing titles Walking Dead, Powers and Scalped continue to rate with excellent storytelling. Castle Waiting, Dolltopia and RASL were very pleasant surprises.
RIP – Thomas Ott
Castle Waiting Volumes 1 and 2 – Linda Medley
Tamara Drewe – Posy Simmonds
Walking Dead Volume 15 – We Find Ourselves – Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard
The Killer Volumes 1 and 3 – Matz and Luc Jacamon

This year’s overall slant towards television writing is represented below with the number of pilots listed.
3:10 to Yuma – Michael Brandt & Derek Haas
Analyze This – Peter Tolan and Harold Ramis and Kenneth Lonergan
Gilmore Girls – Pilot – Amy Sherman-Palladino
Arrested Development – Pilot – Mitchell Hurwitz

Django Unchained – Quentin Tarantino
I’m a little worried I might’ve spoiled things a bit by reading Django Unchained before its opening here in New Zild but I enjoyed the script heaps more than the script for Inglorious Basterds (the film of which I have yet to see in its entirety [and those bits I have chanced across have been intriguingly tasty]).
