Picture of Allan Folsom

Allan Folsom was born in Orlando on December 9, 1941. Folsom died on May 30. 2014 as a result of melanoma. He had been trying to sell stories for over thirty years with very limited effect. But when his big payday came it was BIG. He sold the rights to The Day After Tomorrow Pb for $2m, reportedly the biggest payout for a debut effort to date. When I read The Day After Tomorrow it reminded me of The Day of the Jackal. The element of intensity was there, but so was the level of surprise and innovation. It was not a novel where the situation ran away with itself. There was a careful control of pace. It was always credible because it dealt with ordinary life, in the same way that Forsyth has that gift. But when another has a similiar gift, then we are all gifted. This was an excellent offering from a new author. The styles were dissimiliar, but the effect was alike. It is very sad to see that Allan Folsom is not here to develop a talent that produced an exceptional thriller. When I read The Da Vinci Code I kept thinking that I had read this before. This was because the style and the rhythms were very similiar to Allan Folsom's.
