Heading off to Bouchercon, yea Brother!

The title is a riff from an old Star Trek episode - "Heading off to Eden, yea brother!" The Enterprise crew encounters hippies...

Anyway, tomorrow I'll be getting on a plane early in the morning, stopping in the midwest somewhere to get onto a different plane that will take me to Alaska. Lovely Fairbanks...I'll be walking from there...

If you'll be there, stop by and see me. I'll be manning the tables at 9 am in the bookroom for the 2008 B'Con on both Friday and Saturday. I have a panel on Friday afternoon with Denise Hamilton, Sam Reeves, Chris Knopf, and Kirk Russell. We'll be defining "Hard-Boiled". Hell of a lot easier than defining "noir" so I'm happy.

Then on Saturday I have a standalone thingy where I talk for thirty minutes on a topic of my own choosing. Planning to dust of my dissertation for that one...

I'll be giving away books while I man the B'Con '08 desk, but only to those who sign up of course.

I get back home late Sunday night. It should be a good time.

Hi Steven,

I received my copy of Bronx Noir. I turned right to "Early Fall." What a heart and gut wrenching story! I felt like Yolanda and I were the same person. I couldn't wait for the torment to end, yet I didn't want the story to end. Way to go! Thank you so much.
