Warren Murphy Book Signing/Fan Appreciation Event

Posted in Book Signing, Destroyer books, Molly Cochran, Warren Murphy on September 12, 2013 by sunnyjoedale

On Saturday Sept 14th, 2013, NY Times Bestselling author Warren Murphy will be appearing at the Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library “Formerly known as the Central Library” in Virginia Beach, VA.

Murphy, whose resume lists nearly 200 books, numerous Edgar and Shamus awards, screenwriting credits, and more, asks that fans limit themselves to bringing 3 items from home for autographing. Books will be available for purchase at the event.

The first 50 fans to arrive will receive a gift bag with a special signed edition of Murphy’s first book “Created The Destroyer” just for this event.

If you are a fan of the “Destroyer” series, “Lethal Weapon”, “Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins”, “Legacy”, “Trace” (AKA “Digger”), you’ll want to stop by.
This event happens to fall on Murphy’s 80th birthday weekend, so come on out and wish him a happy birthday and see what new stuff he’s been up to!

Here’s an excerpt from another talk Warren gave several years ago:

Exploitation Retrospect

Posted in Destroyer books, Warren Murphy on April 6, 2013 by sunnyjoedale

Exploitation Retrospect is calling for contributions to a new section — Assignment: Action! — that will be in their Fall 2013 issue.

Assignment: Action! will feature

reviews of men’s adventure novels of the 70s/80s and beyond, action cinema, remembrances of memorable action series and characters and so on. If you dig Remo Williams, The Chameleon, The Penetrator, ABLE Team, The Executioner and their ilk we are definitely seeking contributions from you!

This is a chance for Destroyer fans to post remembrances of  the series, its authors and the various ghost writers, how you were turned on to the Destroyer,  hopes for the direction the series has taken, social issues raised, etc.  If they get enough, maybe it will turn into an all-Destroyer retrospective.
