I don't know if you've seen the TV show Castle. The basic set-up is that a rich and famous best-selling author, Rick Castle, has used his friendship with the mayor to wangle time and ride-alongs with an NYPD detective (Beckett). He is now writing a series of fictional books about a detective Nikki Heat, obviously based on his experiences and "research" with Beckett. I like the stars, Nathan Fillion and Stana Kacic, and think it's pretty cute and funny a lot of the time.

Well, this afternoon I happened to stop into a Barnes & Noble to get a latte from their cafe. As I was leaving, one of the paperbacks for sale caught my eye. "Heat Wave", written by Richard Castle. It seems an enterprising publisher has set his house authors to the task of producing the Nikki Heat books that get mentioned on the show as part of the back story.

This cracked me up.

I haven't watched Castle (primarily because of just being really tired of cop shows), but I do enjoy Nathan Fillion because of the great role he had on Firefly. Maybe I'll give it a try.

Funny bit about the book; love it.

OK. Now this is getting too weird. Before Nikki Heat, Castle's main protagonist was a spy called Derrick Storm. Apparently, they've published some Storm books, too. And now...

And Spinal Tap toured as a real band.

No wonder Republicans are having trouble separating fantasy from reality.

I like that sort of stuff.
On Rizzoli and Isles the mom took up a blog, so in real life they put up a blog. There were actual entries, it was cool.
