Back from Bouchercon

Had a very interesting time and spoke with some very interesting people. Twice I saw Christina Faust of Money Shot fame but I was on the second or third level each time and she was on the ground floor. Alas. One less fan who got to offer his admiration.

I wound up going solo to the PWA Shamus awards at the Slippery Noodle. Still a good time. I was in the presence of big names but stayed low. I did offer my services for next years awards. Fun evening. Great bar.

The Michael Connelly interview was entertaining and enlightening. Michael Koryta did a fine job of conducting the interview. He was light, humorous, and groveled appropriately.

Finally, what a fantastic city Indianapolis was. The coordinators of this years event really left a great impression on a first timer. Nice job.

And that was it. I would really like to go back in the future.

Hard Boiled Detective/ B-Girl Day October 18

In my quest to establish a national/international day of something, I dreamed up Hard Boiled Detective/ B-Girl Day to be celebrated annually October 18. This was before I ever heard of Bouchercon. I chose the day to honor the release of The Maltese Falcon (1o/18/41). The name of the day might be a little too long for parties, so feel free to shrink it down to Dicks and Chicks.
