Noir at the Bar: A break on the way to Bouchercon

Bouchercon 2008: A insane bacchanal of schmoozing, boozing, deals, meals, contact-arranging, business-card exchanging, panels at eight, staying up late, meeting friends and burning the candle at both ends. You'll have a ball, but you'll need a rest when you're done.

Noir at the Bar: A relaxed evening with two of Bouchercon's best, Declan Burke and John McFetridge. Come hear Declan (author of The Big O and Eightball Boogie) and John (Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and Dirty Sweet) in a special international Noir at the Bar reading in Philadelphia the day before Bouchercon (and just an hour away by train):

Where: Fergie's Pub
1214 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, PA
215-928-8118
When: Wednesday, Oct. 8, 6:30 p.m.

Come hear why North America's best newspaper said McFetridge "has a gift for dialogue and setting . . . [and] is an author to watch. He has a great eye for detail, and Toronto has never looked seedier." Come find out why Ken Bruen called Burke “the future of Irish crime fiction.”

Come meet them before the madness of Bouchercon, and you'll be old friends by the time you get to Baltimore. Won't it be fun to recognize them and say: "Dec! How ya doing?" or "Looking good, McFetridge!" You can – but only if you come to Noir at the Bar first. See you there!

Peter, are either of the two author's books in paperback yet?
I was going to ask if you can buy one of each and I would reimburse you. I've gotten to know them so well through your posts that I'm very interested in reading their books. If it's too much trouble, ignore the idea. Petra

Of the two authors' four novels, I think Dirty Sweet is the only one available in paperback in the U.S. All the novels are available in paperback in their home countries: Ireland for Burke, Canada for McFetridge. I await further instructions!

I think both will be in New York at Otto Penzler's Mysterious Bookshop this week to sign some copies, so you could check there as well.
