I'm not generally a joiner, and you can barely get me to attend conventions of crime writers and readers. Yet my friend Ali Karim prevailed upon me sign up with Crimespace. And since I wrote a Rap Sheet post about this new service some while back, I reasoned that I really ought to give it a shot.
I think I'll use this first post to promote a little something we're doing over at The Rap Sheet: conducting our second poll, this one asking readers to name their favorite TV police detectives and private eyes.
Our previous poll, asking readers to identify the long-missing crime novelist they'd most like to see publishing new books again in the near future (see results here: http://therapsheet.blogspot.com/2006/10/please-come-back-kids.html) was very successful and lots of fun. I hope that this new one can generate at least an equal amount of interest.
So, visit The Rap Sheet, pick your favorites from the two lists provided in the right-hand column. And if you have other favorites characters that aren't already mentioned in the survey, let us know about them at: http://therapsheet.blogspot.com/2007/03/top-cops-and-slick-dicks.html
Or, of course, you can comment right here.
Thank you for your attention.
