There are a lot of great places to see in Baltimore - Laura Lippman actually did a round-up on her website in September, covering the restaurants. You might want to check that out. http://www.lauralippman.com/

The Inner Harbor is great, very tourist-friendly. The Barnes and Noble down there is one of the most original bookstore buildings I've seen.

Since moving here I've done a lot of the touristy stuff - the aquarium, the duck tour (which takes you by Edgar Allan Poe's grave) and stuff like that. I'm not sure which dates you'll be in the city but Sept. 26-28 is Baltimore's Book Festival http://www.baltimorebookfestival.com/index.cfm?page=plan and you might want to check that out.

Then again, it's the same day as Washington's, so you might prefer to go there.

And if you're still around the area October 1 you really should try to head to Washington, as Ian Rankin has a signing there that evening.

If you're interested in the Baltimore of The Wire and Homicide, you'll see lots of familiar things easily enough. I'll ask Brian when he gets home if he can think of more specific things to see and do - we're probably going to the book festival ourselves.

Hi Daryl,
I did have a chat with Steve Mosby, who was as lovely in Harrogate as in Bristol - top bloke indeed. And of course it was really good to meet you too. I can’t remember whether you said you might be able to make it to Reading in September?

08's not been a bad year so far, long may it continue! I hope your move goes well, and you get plenty work in on your novel while your offline. Just think, you'll have a whole month of my nonsense wittering blog to catch up on when you're back! (grin)

It's probably somewhere near (or just after) New Year where you are so I thought I'd say that I hope you and The jingo have had a great time away and

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Yay we can see you! Wahoo!

Daryl, you still have it wrong. David Simon is Laura Lippman's husband! (Okay, wouldn't it be funny to do a survey of who is more famous? Well, maybe not funny...)

You're right, Betty doesn't know what she's missing!

Hey D! Both doing really well thanks looking forward to a great sporting weekend.

Hope you and The Jingo are both well after your trip!

Wait... wait... OMG, I'm completely distracted by the revelation that Betty hasn't heard of David Simon!

Hi Daryl, good to see you here.

Oh yah I found you

Ah well - if you're going to be here try Leigh Redhead as well - she's published by Angus & Robertson and believe me - between now and January... we should be able to make that Jeff's Shed Load :)

Daryl - I'm sorry I just realised I forgot to answer your question about who is hot.

Well other than Mr Temple who remains high on everybody's lists - there have been some stellar new releases recently - Katherine Howell (you'll find her here as well as on AustCrime) some of the old stagers are still producing great books. Peter Corris has a short listed entry in the Ned Kelly's for this year, Garry Disher's last - Chain of Evidence (I thought anyway) was one of the best of his Hal Challis series. Lindy Cameron has also edited a Sisters in Crime release of the Scarlet Stiletto Winners.

Hi Daryl and thank you for the kind comments - we're still fiddling around with the details on the new austcrime - the original formatting doesn't convert all that well - but we'll get there. Hopefully this format will allow us to handle "breaking new" much more elegantly.

I confess to being a huge fan of Australian Terriers - despite the fact that they are known as the termigents around here - great personalities, great companion dogs. Ever so slightly bats :)

Hey Daryl, (i feel strange using your real name)
We all seem to be following each other around cyber space, x.

Hey, another Aussie on board, even if you're an ex-pat. And with a creepy profile photo to boot, you're sure to have a ball here! Welcome aboard.
