Byron Leon McAllister replied to QualityBookReviews's discussion What are you currently reading?
"I'm far enough into The Baritone Wore Chiffon, now, that I think it's reasonable to recommend it to whoever likes humorous wordplay in your mysteries. I do: that's why I picked up the second in the series. (Getting the first was pure…"

Byron Leon McAllister replied to QualityBookReviews's discussion What are you currently reading?
"Would telling what I'm reading amount to a recommendation? I hesitate to go so far as that, though I'd consider it. Anyway, I just finished "The Alto Wore Tweed" and started on "The Baritone Wore Chiffon" both by Mark…"

Byron Leon McAllister replied to Brian Hoffman's discussion This blog has blogged down
"My latest is bogged down. Well, actually I am, because though the  plot is (relatively) believable, the degree of excitement demanded by contemporary readers hasn't reared its ugly head yet. But Free Cell is better for me than alcohol…"

Byron Leon McAllister replied to Susan's discussion Guardian angel or serial killer?
"As to blogs, I'll paraphrase a certain US cowboy and say I never met a blog I didn't dislike. Maybe there'll be a first somewhere?"

Byron Leon McAllister replied to I. J. Parker's discussion Untreed Reads
"Electronic publishers, like the ones that use tree pulp, need to offer writers a contract.  Unless they're so big they can afford very pricey lawyers, they would be well advised to stick with that contract.  So if the agreement…"

Byron Leon McAllister replied to Terrence McCauley's discussion Period Fiction in Today's Marketplace?
"The excuse publishers give one is not necessarily based on their actual reasons for rejecting one's work. They may already have something of that kind in the mill; they may not like one's writing style; they may see too many flaws; they…"

Profile Information

About Me:
I was gonna be a chemist, but backslid. I became a mathematician, but retired. Now I write mysteries, but publishing and marketing being so disagreeable (to me, that is; somebody must like it) I'm looking into where to backslide to. Sample locations for earlier incarnations: Hayward, California, Alton, Utah, Madison, Wisconsin, Rapid City, South Dakota, Salt Lake City Utah. I used to go by my middle name, but was drafted for Korea (sent elsewhere) at which time the U S Army decided I had to go by the first one. Changing back turned out to be harder than I'd expected, so I ended up not doing it.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer
Books And Authors I Like:
I don't often re-read books, but the fact that I do re-read Agatha Christie pretty well shows that I like her work. Strangely enough, I also enjoy rereading my own work. Not every writer does. (Do you?) I reckon I have too many likes to try to select further among them here. And nobody wants to read about my dislikes.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
We (spouse and I) have a lot of tapes and DVDs featuring Poirot, Marple (each in several incarnations), and some miscellaneous, too, e.g. the Foyle's War series. Our collection of Holmes is miniscule, because spouse hates the SOB--I don't, but who am I to decide what to do with loose change? Now that TV has gone digital, our old eyes sometimes settle for those tapes and CDs, plus two a month (not always mystery) from Netflix.
