Lawrence Block A Note from John about Lawrence Block:

"Lawrence Block has been around for a long time, and his bibliography spans many decades. To say that his awards are too numerous to mention may sound trite, but just take a look at some of the major awards; four Anthony Awards, nine Edgar Awards, and eleven Shamus Awards, including in 2002, the Lifetime Achievement Award ("The Eye"), and in 2009, the Best Character Award ("The Hammer") for Matt Scudder. In 1994 Block was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America.

We all know the Matthew Scudder novels, Bernie Rhodenbarr and Evan Tanner, but few are versed in Blocks earliest books. Block now refers to these books as “mid-century” or “classic erotica.” Writing as Jill Emerson, Paul Kavanagh, Sheldon Lord, Andrew Shaw, Don Holliday, Ben Christopher, and numerous other pseudonyms, Block cranked out over 50 of these titles with the first, CARLA, released when Block was just 20 years old."


Lawrence Block (born June 24, 1938) is an acclaimed contemporary American crime writer who has been writing crime, mystery, and suspense fiction for more than half a century. He has published in excess of 100 books, and no end of short stories.

His earliest work was mostly in the field of mid-century erotica, The first time Lawrence Block's name appeared in print was when his short story "You Can't Lose" was published in the February 1958 issue of Manhunt. The first book published under his own name was Mona (1961).

Block's major series, humorous and much lighter in tone, relates the misadventures of gentleman burglar Bernie Rhodenbarr. The series is rich in sophisticated dialogue, wit and cynicism. Besides Scudder and Rhodenbarr, Block has written eight novels about Evan Tanner, an adventurer and accidental revolutionary who, as a result of an injury sustained in the Korean War, cannot sleep.

Block and his wife Lynne are enthusiastic New Yorkers and relentless world travelers. The two are members of the Travelers Century Club and have visited around 160 countries.
