A Pleasant New Orleans Hangover

Following up on my two-part photo report (here and here) from this month’s Bouchercon in New Orleans, I have devoted my new Kirkus Reviews column to that same subject. My coverage this time, though, includes remarks on two panel presentations, one successful and the other not; the odd lurking presence of best-selling British thriller author Martina Cole at the September 15-18 gathering; and my most embarrassing personal moments from this convention. Learn about all of those things and more by clicking here.

Thanks for recounting again the Yrsa story; I wish I had been there. And thanks for the kind words about my panel. I miss New Orleans so much that I'm almost nostalgic for humidity.
