Snippets From All Four Corners of The Internet

The lovely Andy Jamieson of Waterstone's West End in Edinburgh tells me of what looks to be a very interesting event:

Waterstone's Edinburgh Geekzine is proud to present:

An evening with Ian Rankin.

Thursday 15th October at 6pm 2009

Talk and signing at Waterstone’s West End.

Tickets are £3, and are available in limited quantity from the Waterstone’s West End branch, 128 Princes Street, 0131 226 2666.

An exclusive in-store event with Ian Rankin, where he will be discussing Dark Entries, his debut graphic novel, starring the Hellblazer character, John Constantine.”

Store event contact: Andy Jamieson or Chris Barker (0131 226 2666, Waterstone's Edinburgh West End, 128 Princes Street, EH2 4AD)

And, talking of Ian Rankin, he recently walked for charity.

The always excellent (which, by the way, if it isn't on your list of regularly visited sites, should be) reviews Philip Kerr, Stuart MacBride (something a bit different from him) and Dundee author Chris Longmuir (she is also interviewed as part of the site's Fresh Blood series

Carol Anne Davis on a horrible, horrible true crime case in the UK.

Something a little bit different at the Cheltenham Literature Festival as Ann Widdecombe and Douglas Hurd (good grief) talk about their love of John Buchan. The whole event looks really good.

And a report from the Wigtown Festival's Got Talent show at the Wigtown Book Festival.

Bernadette at Reactions To Reading talks about Caro Ramsay's ABSOLUTION, a book my Dad also enjoyed a while ago.
