Man, it gets better and better. Is this best mate someone I'd know? Can't believe my book is soaring around the world (or at least across the Pond, or don't the Irish use that term) before it's even published. I think I bewilder Otto too. Feminists are chuckling. ;) Liz
Bless you, Ken. I put the poetry books in the mail for you today. And I have to tell you that when I went down to Mysterious last night for the launch of Otto Penzler's Vicious Circle anthology, I told him FIRST that you loved my book and THEN about the Agatha--giving the antidote first, since he's well known to be allergic to teacups. (Do you Darksiders know that the actual Agatha is a teapot?) He still did a kind of double take, like a vampire confronted with garlic. ;) Liz
Jason did a good job getting the awards for you last weekend -but everyone missed having you at B'con-hugely!!! Congrats and wish I'd gotten to flash you as I did the other winners, but can send you a photo of Jason with your award.
David, Naomi, Daniel, Peg

Congratulations on the Shamus Award. Fantastic and well-deserved news! Read the Cross this weekend. As usual, you completely blew me away. Thanks for the great read, and the couple of nights tossing and turning as I tried to get it out of my mind and get some sleep!
I'm hoping you won't mind a mention of your name in a series of talks I'm giving in libraries here in Michigan. You're my "famous" writer in the subgenre and I chose Allan Guthrie as a "fledgling" example of note. Hoping it sells a book or two for each of you here across the pond.
