Damn it. I haven't read a single one.

But I do plan on writing a novel called MY UNDERTOW. It's bound to be a sure thing next year.
I'm shooting for "Trapped in a Terrorist Undertow Behind the Murderers' Club Ferry on Van Byron Bay." It might be a little long, but just printing it on the top of every page should push my word count into the 80,000's.
Weird the way that seems to happen in a single year isn't it Daniel.

But you're right - you do have to get moving on that local reading!

Diamond Dove - believe me I'll be at the Ned Kelly night doing my pathetic fan routine! In fact, there looks like there's going to be another reasonably sized 4MA MWF gathering - with chocolate tours again this year.
Done Like A Dinner is one of the books I've got to get hold of, I guess you could call it a cookbook, but I think they're talking about cooking up something slightly different from food :) :) :)
Shamefully I've read none of these; it takes an age for the vast majority of Australian crime fic to be readily available in the UK. Michael Rowbotham and Kathyrn Fox are the only names from the list that are familiar from UK bookshelves. I'm so looking forward to the UK release of Diamond Dove.
