Happy birthday to Detectives Beyond Borders! The blog that makes it easier for us to discover authors from other parts of the world celebrates by telling us how David Peace’s narrative technique takes us to Tokyo and by making lemonade out of Bitter Lemons.
Brian Skupin flings Fredrick Brown and Christopher Fowler together in a locked room. Cornelia Read is In For Questioning. (What I wanna know is how she did that?) And Paper Cuts is messing with my head by telling me that the Coen brothers are making the film version of No Country for Old Men (or, as I retitled it, Nihilists of the Purple Sage). Looks purty, but a mite more serious than Fargo.
Speaking of carnivals, we may be up and running with a crime fiction carnival soon. I mean if there can be one for bad history or critters or – oh, dear lord! – the infosciences, surely there should be one for us criminal types. Stay tuned. And let me know if you come across a crime fiction blog posting that shouldn’t be missed.
