Elmore Leonard’s Raylan Givens is back in books and on TV

By Carol Memmott, USA TODAY

The Jan. 17 premiere of season three of FX’s Justified may seem a long way off to fans of the popular series starring Timothy Olyphant, but there is a way to pass the time until then.

Justified is inspired by Elmore Leonard’s short story “Fire in the Hole” and William Morrow, with perfect timing, has just released new trade paperback editions of all the Leonard books which feature Raylan Givens, the Deputy U.S. Marshall/hero played by Olyphant on Justified.
So if you need a Raylan fix read Fire in the Hole and Other Stories (previously published as When the Women Come Out to Dance in 2002) as well as Pronto, a novel first published in 1993, and its sequel Riding the Rap (1995).

And then there’s the new Leonard novel, Raylan, which publishes Jan. 17 just as the new season of Justified begins. The book jacket features Olyphant as Raylan.
Leonard credits Olyphant and Justified’s showrunner/executive producer/writer Graham Yost for encouraging him to write it. It’s why Leonard dedicates Raylan to them.
