Q & A with Lee Goldberg and William Rabkin creators The Dead Man series

Lee Goldberg
Lee Goldberg
William Rabkin
William Rabkin

Question: How did The Dead Man series come about?

William Rabkin: It started with a TV pilot script and 12 storylines that Lee and I wrote twenty years ago. The TV series didn’t sell, but we never stopped thinking about Matt Cahill… about what happened to him and what sorts of adventures he’d face. Finally we got sick of thinking about it and decided we’d write it ourselves as a series of books. Shortly after that, we had the idea of inviting some of the wildly creative, brilliant authors and screenwriters that we know to write books in the series as well…

Question: You are both avid fans of the “men’s action adventure” genre. What made you think The Dead Man could revive the genre?

Lee Goldberg: It has all the elements of the classic men’s action-adventure series….a rugged hero, an open-ended mission, a clear enemy and the potential for lots of violence … but with an occult edge that allows us to imbue a dated genre with more surprising twists and darker humor. We felt by embracing the supernatural, and the traditional elements of the men’s action adventure genre, we opened the door to story- telling that would push the envelope a bit. More importantly, though, we adopted a voice, and an approach to the material, that we think is more character-based, more self-aware, and perhaps more wise-ass than most of those series were back in the day (with the possible exception of “The Destroyer”).

Question: You both love horror novels. Is there an author that you particularly admire?

William Rabkin: Stephen King, of course. He marries the human and the horrible so brilliantly that he transformed the genre forever.  In terms of writers who can carry a single character over a long and constantly exciting set of adventures, I’d love to see us compared to Lee Child.

Question: How do you two write your books together?

Lee Goldberg:  So far, the way we’ve done it is that one of us writes the first draft and the other one does the revisions (or suggests revisions that the other writer does). But we talk to one another throughout the process. I won’t tell you who wrote the first draft of which book…you’ll have to figure that one out for yourselves. But it won’t be easy. Bill and I have written together in television for so many years that we’re very good at creating and maintaining a shared voice, though this is the first time we’ve collaborated on books.

Review

Hell in Heaven is the best so far in an already splendid series and is super rush of a read with plenty of sharp twists and turns and some truly smashing lines. --Paul D. Brazill

If you haven't read The Dead Man books you are certainly missing out on some terrific reads --Man-Eating Bookworm

This series has kept me rapt from the first page [...]these authors are the Jamaican sprint team doing the 4x100m relay, each stage just gets better and better. --Right What You No

Hell in Heaven is a direct spiritual descendant of the sorts of awesome pulp action adventure tales that the greats like Robert E. Howard loved to write. --Post-Modern Pulps

For anyone who has not taken up the world of Matt Cahill yet, you are missing out on some truly crowd-pleasing fun. --Bookgasm

I have no idea what adventures Matt Cahill will be experiencing in the next books, but I do know that I want to ride shotgun until the end--I'm hooked I tell ya.

I love reading horror, mystery, suspense and humor. The Dead Man books encapsulate all of that, and then some. I know I'm gushing, but seriously, I've not been this excited about a series since The Green Mile. Thankfully, these are being released quick enough that I don't have to wait too long for the next one.

"Alive, dead, alive again" Matt is my favorite (of course), but the supporting characters are equally fleshed out and believable. One, in particular, stands out in this installment: Mouse. She is memorable to me because that was my daughter's nickname when she was little...but let me tell you, she'd have been taken out back to the wood shed if she'd shared any other qualities with the 11-year-old Mouse in Hell in Heaven. Oh, and the names of the other characters? Awesome! I had almost as much fun saying the names out loud as I did recapping the story to my husband.

Goldberg and Rabkin are a great team, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

This whole series of short stories is very well crafted. It incorporates that work of a number of very talented writers and it is easy to become enmeshed in the stories. It's a very interesting concept and throughout the entire series it continues to hold up.

This book is really disappointing. I really like the series and the premise but this book, I'm not a fan of. The main thing that I didn't like about the book is the feuding families part. Just seemed very stale. Next, the town they lived in, was it there or not? Finally, now he can only see the evil in people when they are being evil, not when they are not actively being evil? This book just didn't have the same feel as the first two and I am hoping the fourth is better.

Continuing the Dead Man Series, this is the goriest and initially, most traumatizingly horrific story so far for me. In fact I'd dare say it's may favorite of the first three stories. Of course, that's a limited pool but it's true. Since these have a more episodic, self contained narrative the overall mythology isn't touched upon and I'm fine with that. I enjoy the Matt Cahill adventures and his discovery of the hidden darkness/supernatural existence that lurks just off the road. The blending of supernatural and realistic is one of the strengths of the series and this novel inparticular. Dark forces might bring trouble but it seems humanity is fully capable of creating their own darkness.

Traveling across northern Washington state on a motorcycle, Matt decides to stop off for a bit in a small town called Heaven, where the people live simple lives with simple pleasures - there is no TV, to internet, no franchises or big-box stores, and the people wear simple, sturdy clothing that is built to last and easy to work in. He is befriended by a woman whose son is due to come home from the war, only she is worried - something about her son has seemed off in his letters home, and she asks Matt so stay and meet her son, also named Matt - well, what else can he do? What is the mystery of this town that time forgot?

In this book, Matt continues to seek the meaning behind his resurrection, and wonders if maybe Heaven and its problems was the purpose. While he tries to figure out what is going on here, he is also working to understand what his purpose should be. An interesting episode in the life of The Dead Man - recommended for fans of dark suspense/thrillers and horror.

The first book in the series was an excellent set up for the story to follow-----but the second book strayed from the story line and by the time I got to this third one I was losing interest because the writing style of each author is different and the story was drifting into areas that I am not particularly interested in-----I can't help but think that these series style books suffer if not written by the same author-----each one seems to take you in a different direction and I just don't have time to waste seeing if it all comes together somewhere towards the end----but I'm guessing this series will isn't going to get where I thought it was going.

The Dead Man series are all fairly short stories, maybe an hour's read. They follow the same kind of story line.

Man wandering the country trying to deal with Mr. Dark, who seems to follow him and deal out misery to him and sometimes those around him.

One reviewer mentioned the gratuitous sex scenes. Yes, they exist. But, the genre almost demands them. if they bother you, they are readily skipped.

I got several of them for 99 cents each. I thought it was a pretty good deal. I enjoyed reading them, and that is why I would read this type of story.

Other reviewers have covered some of the plot lines, so I won't bother.

Ok, I liked this book, I liked the potential of the book, but for every one good thing there was an equal portion of poorly conceived story. I read several of these and in one, possible this one, the way the main character died or was killed to begin with were different....that definitely does not make for a smooth story. I have a problem with the ongoing battle between the main character and the evil Mr.Bad or whatever whom, with a little more work, could be a truly evil force, vs someone who either never shows his face, or if he does, it is at a point that doesnot fit the rest. Mr. Rabkin is entertaining but inconsistent.
