Earlier this year The Collaborator was reviewed at Gilbert, the magazine of the American Chesterton Society. You can read the review here.

The Collaborator was also reviewed at A Blog For Dallas Area Catholics. That review can be found here.
Last week I did an interview with Dave Palmer at radio station KATH (910 on your radio dial, serving the North Texas area) regarding The Collaborator. For those of you interested, I'd urge you to give it a listen here.  My thanks again to Dave and the great people at KATH, and if you're in the DFW area, give it a listen sometime.
Welcome to the website!

I know, it's not very fancy, is it? "Are you sure we need this?" I asked my publisher,when he reminded me that I had yet to do the website.

"I already told you that," he replied. "And you saw the bio on the back of the book - 'visit www.MitchellHadley.com for more information.' What's it going to be like if people go there and all they see is a blank page? From an author?"

I've seen my share of blank pages in my time, and they're not very inspiring, especially when you're trying to fill them up. "I understand," I said.  "Don't worry, I'll have something up in the morning."

"You'd better," was all he said. "The book's coming out next week, you know."

The funny thing is, you'd think it would be easy to fill a half page on a website when you'd just finished writing 200 pages for a book, but it's not.  So consider this a work in progress.

But at the very least, this will give you a chance to learn more about me, to read my writing about classic television and other cultural issues, and most of all to learn more about The Collaborator. It's my hope that you'll be interested enough to buy it if you haven't already done so, and that you'll want to become part of the conversation both here and at the other sites.


That picture in the header looks awfully serious, doesn't it? Stern, even. I joke that it's my "I'm a serious author, dammit!" look, and it's the same picture that's on the back cover of the book, but it doesn't seem very friendly. Let's get something a little less serious up here, shall we?

So here's a picture of me in our library. I don't work there, primarily because there's no television, and I've almost always got the TV on when I'm working, but it's a good room in which to spend some time.

Now, of course, it looks a little different, because I have one of my own books on the shelf.
