Cramps, Crime and Christmas

Isn't Sunday a lovely day? Not only have I been Christmas shopping (not yours, Dad, so don't bother asking), done loads of writing, taught myself The Cramps' Human Fly on the guitar and had a nap, I've caught up on all the news and am finally up to date again. What a shame it's Monday tomorrow...

The Independent with the best crime books for Christmas. While Alexander McCall Smith talks about The Times WH SmithPaperback of the Year Award. And more McCall Smith as he tells us why we should believe in Father Christmas. Of course we should.

Reviewingtheevidence interviews Denise Mina, while Charles Cumming undergoes some therapy at the Telegraph and Catriona MacPherson chats to the Glasgow Herald.

Ian Rankin to appear at the Galle Literary Festival in Sri Lanka at the end of January. While I'm very much looking forward to Crimefest in Bristol, somehow, it doesn't sound quite as exotic.

The lovely Maxine over at Petrona summarises The Bookseller's books of the decade, giving us the crime fiction highlights.

And, finally, a thoughtful blog post from Crimespree's Jon Jordan about how to fix publishing.
