A Cornucopia of Conventions

Early news from the 2010 Bouchercon in San Francisco - Val McDermid and Denise Mina in conversation.

And for those who can't wait until October 2010, how about Bouchercon in Indianapolis in a couple of weeks time? Anyone who reads this who is going, please come up and say hi - as long as you don't mind a hug in return. A quick look down the attendee list does not throw up any Scottish authors...that must be wrong, surely? Anyway, I am hoping to blog from Indianapolis at some point, if not several points, after a few days spent visiting my lovely friend Bobbie in Illinois.

Irvine Welsh on Henley Literary Festival, sequels and prequels.

Sherlock Holmes features heavily in the Havant Literary Festival. (Is there any town in Britain that doesn't have its own literary festival these days? How brilliant that there is so much focus on books. And, speaking of Sherlock Holmes, I'm sure I don't have any readers from New Zealand, but just in case, here's a competition to win THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES.

More on the Alexander McCall Smith auction, complete with diamonds.

Listen to Iain Banks TRANSITION as a free podcast.

And finally, a reminder about the delightful Russel McLean's book launch in Dundee next week.
