Declan Burke's Crime Always Pays
blog is the holiday home of the Carnival of the Criminal Minds
, and I fear our jovial host has been hitting the egg nog a little early. I bear no more than a passing resemblance to the picture he posted alongside his kind remarks about Detectives Beyond Borders. Nor is Carnival queen Barbara Fister
on the mark when she asserts, based on said photo, that I have a brain the size of a planet. At most, it is no larger than a floating piece of space junk in a disreputable suburb of the asteroid belt.
As previous Carnival hosts have done, Burke gives an entertaining précis of the best in recent crime-fiction blogging. He also offers the story of his blog, his belly-laugh-inducing caper novel The Big O
, and their heartwarming rise to international prominence.© Peter Rozovsky 2007
