Elmore Leonard is JUSTIFIED

Premiering last night on FX was the new series, Justified, based on Elmore Leonard’s short story “Fire in the Hole” (which is also the title of the first episode). The main character, Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens also appears in two Leonard novels, Pronto and Riding the Rap. Both are being released in mass market paperback this month, with bursts on the covers that read “Featuring RAYLAN GIVENS, from the new FX Series, JUSTIFIED.”

The story “Fire in the Hole” is in the collection, When the Women Come Out to Dance.

Leonard was interviewed on NPR’s All Things Considered last night (listen here) and the new series was reviewed on Fresh Air. It is also reviewed in the New York Times.

Leonard’s next book, Djibouti, (listen to the interview for the pronunciation), scheduled for a one-day laydown on 10/12/10 (not in November, as the interview indicates), is about “terrorism, piracy, and al-Qaida.” (see publisher’s description in the Morrow catalog).
