Errol in fiction

06 Aug

I noticed on Amazon the other day a new book called Flynn’s Last Stand by Al Hooper. I wonder if any of you chaps have read it yet? Previous outtings for Errol in works of fiction havent been too successful, my favourite being Stuart Kaminsky’s Bullet for a Star. The Pirates Daughter was also a decent read although probably sitting better with a female readership.

So fellow Flynn fans, have you any opinions, good or bad, on Flynn fiction? Perhaps the world is ready for Fifty Shades of Flynn!!

    I haven’t read this one, but another one called “Glitter Baby”, which was not sooo bad, don’t know if anybody else has read it? I also recall a title “The Errol Flynn novel”, but as I am a bit sceptical about these works of fiction, I have not read it either – have you, Derek?

      The Errol Flynn Novel is a dire piece of trash. Flynn is depicted as a bisexual but worse than that it’s just a dreadfully written book. None of the dialogue rings true and there is no sense of the Flynn that anyone who knew him speaks of. No charm. No wit. Nothing. Avoid

          No but in shall check it out now thanks. The Kaminsky books are quite fun. It’s the first if a series of books featuring a private eye whose cases involve a whole host of celebrities from Hollywood’s golden age
