Look Who’s Talking

I admit it: I’ve been lax recently in mentioning author interviews worthy of your attention. There have been so many of them, however, that keeping up with them all is no easy task.

Consider: Lori Rader-Day spoke with Marshal Zeringue this week about her new standalone historical mystery, Death at Greenway. Nicholas Meyer joined The Mysterious Press’ Otto Penzler and Steven Rothman of The Baker Street Journal to chat online about his latest Sherlock Holmes novel, The Return of the Pharoah. (CrimeReads also published this fine essay by Meyer, reflecting on how “pastiche authors must walk a thin line between honoring what came before and reflecting contemporary values.”). Speaking of Mysteries host Nancie Clare offers up conversations with Alison Gaylin (The Collective), David McCloskey (Damascus Station), and James R. Benn (Road of Bones). Finally, Robert Woolsey, of KCAW-FM in Sitka, Alaska, quizzes John Straley about his forthcoming Cecil Younger novel, So Far and Good, and “why the author keeps a custom-built yellow cedar coffin in his office.”
