EVIL Gets a Paperback… & a Playlist!
The third novel in the Lily Moore series, EVIL IN ALL ITS DISGUISES, is out in paperback today from Tor/Forge. To celebrate, I’ve created a musical playlist for the book in iTunes. It features the music that I had playing in the back of my mind while I wrote certain scenes of the book, and a few of the artists, such as Madeleine Peyroux, are explicitly mentioned in its pages. Several of the songs are by Mexican artists, including Rodrigo y Gabriela, Yuridia, and Pepe Aguilar, which seems only fitting since so much of the action takes place in Acapulco. Frank Sinatra and Benny Goodman are longtime favorites of Lily’s. And since I’m a Hitchcock fan, I’ve borrowed parts of Bernard Hermann’s score for Vertigo. (If Hitchcock were alive today, he’d be asking Christen Lien to score his films, so a couple of her works are on the playlist, too.)
For anyone who doesn’t use iTunes but wants the track titles, here they are:
- Come fly With Me — Frank Sinatra
- Acapulco — Tito Puente and His Orchestra
- Me Olvidaras — Yuridia
- Hanuman — Rodrigo y Gabriela
- Damn the Circumstances — Madeleine Peyroux
- The Beach — Bernard Hermann
- Helixa — Christen Lien
- (I Offer You the Moon) Señorita — Frank Sinatra
- Me Vas a Extrañar — Pepe Aguilar
- Bad Intentions — Digital Daggers
- Someone to Trust — Bear McCreary
- The Nightmare and Dawn — Bernard Hermann
- 15 Aftermaths — Christen Lien
- Now I Know — Cowboy Junkies
- Santo Domingo — Rodrigo y Gabriela
- Here’s Love in Your Eyes — Benny Goodman

Also, heartfelt thanks to everyone who bought the hardcover. Without you, there wouldn’t be a paperback!
