FIR presents Linked Conversations with Chuck Hester, Episode 18: June 25, 2014
Welcome to the latest episode of Linked Conversations with Chuck Hester.
This episode is devoted entirely to a very special guest: Craig Johnson, the author the Walt Longmire mystery series. Craig’s books are the basis for the hit A&E drama, Longmire, starring Robert Taylor, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Katee Sackoff. His latest novel in the series – By Any Other Name – just published in May and rose to number six on the New York Time Best Seller list.
Popular in the US and Europe, The Cold Dish was a Dilys Award finalist and the French edition won Le Prix du Polar Nouvel Observateur/BibliObs. He has been honored with the Wyoming State Historical Association’s Book of the Year, France’s Le Prix 813. He’s a Western Writers of America’s Spur Award winner and the Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers’ Book of the Year. The Dark Horse, the fifth in the Walt Longmire series, was a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year. Hell Is Empty, selected by Library Journal as the Best Mystery of the Year, was a New York Times best seller, as was As the Crow Flies.
Johnson lives in Ucross, Wyoming, population 25.
