You can never have enough friends. But what are they for? Some people here seem to have more friends then Crimespace members exist. Like collecting stamps - Wow, got a Laura Lippman! Any Ken Bruen? We have the nets, but no fishes in it. So what's to do? As for me, I plan to establish a column for my friends (and all the others who might be interested in) about "The Not-Published-Yets": English writing authors not published yet here in Germany although they are worth to become translated and German authors who have something to say to not German speaking readers all over the world (yes, they exist! A few but...) A what-happens-on-the-other-side-of-the-ocean-thing. Need some time... Any other ideas?
