Sunday Gallimaufry

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend the lovelyTony Black's book launch last week, but, apparently, both Ian Rankin and William McIlvanney made it. Damn - I always miss the best parties. But if like me you couldn't make it here's a video featuring the new book LONG TIME DEAD. And Tony tells the Press and Journal how he recently shared dinner and funny handshakes with the Freemasons. And a review of the book by Paul Brazill who calls it an urban classic - nice.

The charming Michael Malone interviews Bill Kirton.

In a recent blog post from Craig Robertson, he says he has just finished writing SNAPSHOT, the follow-up to his debut novel RANDOM.
