Sadly, I’m not in Bristol, England, right now attending this year’s edition of CrimeFest. But other people are, and we can turn to them for news updates. Philadelphean Peter Rozovsky has begun filing posts about the event in Detectives Without Borders. Meanwhile, Ayo Onatade is unfolding her own series in Shotsmag Confidential; Martin Edwards is on hand for the festivities as well. I’ll try to keep up with CrimeFest dispatches from around the blogosphere, but Rap Sheet readers should also feel free to add their own links (in the Comments section of this post) to stories about the goings-on this week in Bristol.
If you’d like to look over the convention program, click here. You will note that tomorrow night offers the Crime Writers’ Association’s Dagger Shortlist Announcement Party. We will clue you in to the names on that shortlist, as well as the identites of the winners of this year’s Last Laugh and Sounds of Crime awards--both to be given out at CrimeFest--as soon as they’re available.
