Not Your Average Stamp Collector: Lawrence Block's Keller

By November 26, 2012

Follow me on:

Writer Lawrence Block has brought back Keller, the philatelic hit man in the latest of a series of "hit" themed books including Hit List and Hit and Run. The latest, Hit Me has been printed in a limited edition and includes a souvenir sheet featuring some of the rare stamps in Keller's collection. That's right, the murderous main character is a stamp collector, but unlike any you know...hopefully. The gimmick with the souvenir sheet, which pictures rarities like Martinique #2 and Obock #J1 is that it also has three bullet holes in it. I'm sure your philatelist would be greatly pleased to receive the book and sheet as a holiday gift. You might say it would be a big hit with him.
