Damien at afterdarkmysweet first sent me a link but I wound up here again via your site and decided to pitch a tent. Looking forward to seeing how the joint grows, and it may break my addiction to the San Diego Zoo Pandacam.
thanks for the welcome. I'm till trying to work out how to do things on this wonderful site.
And I know you liked Redback (thanks) because I read your review (thanks even more). It's also one of the reason I joined Crimespace... to say hi to you. Are you a member of Sisters in Crime Aus?
Hey Karen... Haven't read that one yet. Is it good? The last one I read was the Hogfather, it's great with Death as Santa Claus, well you know..
My boyfrined bought "The Last Hero" (illustrated! it looks amazing) as a Christmas gift for his... uhm I don't know english word for that (his father's sister's son) :) Anyways... it looks great and it has Cohen the Barbarian without his teeth, and he gave it away for Christmas! I wanted to kill him... ;)
Thanks for adding me. If you check out my website you'll see a few of my ebooks have been published by Australian publishers, i.e. Eternal Press, and RS Publishing, but the 'biggies' all come out next year. I'm a tiotal dog lover and Tilly, in the pic on my page never leaves my side, easpecially when I'm wrriing. She was badly abused before we got her, as were all our dogs, but she's an absolute delight.
Love Reginald Hill and the others you mentioned. Of course, Scandinavian Crime--the latest issue of MRJ had so many news ones--and Adrian Hyland is outstanding. You're right about that TBR pile-the more, the better.
It would have been great to catch up with you there. Never mind. Next time. Your description of the Ian Rankin talk is great, so detailed. I'll send the reference to my writing group so they can share it, as the precis I sent them was very brief.
Just to let you know I made it into the city with my husband last week for the Ian Rankin/Shane Maloney conversation - very enjoyable. And as it was a gorgeous day, we followed it up with lunch at South Bank. It was one of those days when I really appreciate retirement.
