Raylan Givens X 3

image

Raylan Givens has made three appearances in Elmore’s work.  That number will soon be four with the publication of his 45th novel, Raylan, early next year.

First, there was Pronto (Delacorte; New York; 1993) which introduced the character.  Raylan was not the lead character in the beginning of that book, but he certainly was by its end, facing off with the Zip. Showtime made a TV movie out of Pronto in 1997, starring James LeGros as Raylan.

Elmore liked Raylan enough to devote his next book, Riding the Rap, (Delacorte; New York; 1995.) to the character.  Here we see Raylan deeply entrenched in Elmore’s Florida, honing the character further.

Finally, in 2000, the novella, Fire in the Hole, was published by contentville.com and became one of the very first e-books.  In Fire in the Hole, Elmore brings Raylan back to his home ground, Harlan County, Kentucky.  This novella became the basis for the TV series, Justified.  Fire in the Hole can be found online and has been collected in the story collection, When the Women Come Out to Dance, (Delacorte, New York, 2002).

All three books can be ordered here at the Elmore Leonard Bookstore.
