    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcome the multi-talented John Schulian to the show.  After making his mark in sportswriting and Hollywood, John Schulian has shifted gears and written his first novel, the noirish "A Better Goodbye." It's the tale of lost souls in rarely-seen precincts of Los Angeles, a melting pot stirred by a tragedy-haunted boxer, a college girl moonlighting as a sensual masseuse, a failed actor turned pimp, and a prison-hardened sociopath. "Goodbye" marks the latest turn in the career of the L.A.-born and Salt Lake City-reared Schulian, was regularly in included in E.P. Dutton's annual "Best Sports Stories" anthology, and published a highly-regarded collection of his boxing writing, "Writers' Fighters and Other Sweet Scientists.". He landed at the Philadelphia Daily News long enough to win the 1985 Nat Fleischer Award for Excellence in Boxing Journalism, and then took off for Hollywood at the invitation of Steven Bochco, creator of "Hill Street Blues." Schulian broke into TV with an "L.A. Law" script and was on the writing staffs of "Miami Vice," "The 'Slap' Maxwell Story," and "Wiseguy." He struck gold as a co-creator of "Xena: Warrior Princess,". Schulian later wrote and produced  "JAG," "Outer Limits," and "Tremors". "Twilight of the Long-ball Gods," followed by "Sometimes They Even Shook Your Hand." He has also had short stories published in the Prague Revue and on Thuglit and The Classical. Schulian is the editor of "The John Lardner Reader" and co-editor, with George Kimball, of two anthologies, "At the Fights: American Writers on Boxing" and "The Fighter Still Remains".
