A short post today as I have a conference this weekend. Thanks again to those who donated prizes for our raffle. It's lovely of you and I'm going to hug you all when I see you. The organisation is staffed by volunteers (250 volunteers to each member of staff!) and we rely a lot on donations.
Anyway, Scottish crime fiction news:
Lots of good stuff at the Margins Book Festival, and The List also has an interesting debate between Helen Fitzgerald, Alan Bissett and Allan Wilson, on the current literary landscape.
Crime fiction is the most borrowed genre in Britain's libraries.
Maxine at Petrona with one of her extremely thoughtful reviews of Peter May's THE BLACKHOUSE.
Is there no end to Ian Rankin's talents? Hear him in the panel game The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
Mark Billingham and Paul Johnston in conversation at Crime Culture.
Crimefest panels are done, and moderators are being contacted about their panels. Woohoo! I'm moderating one called Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know and the initials of my panelists are HF, DL, DS and MM ;o)
