A bit of reading while you wait

That outside commitment is cutting into my blogging again. In the meantime, here's an interview with Charlie Stella, who offers blunt assessments of American society, current crime writing, and himself.

And here's a link you might like if you've wondered where to start with Scandinavian crime fiction.

Finally, one of this blog's favorite commenters finds herself in some exciting company.

(Just opened my copy, and it appears she's not the only friend of DBB who had a share in this project. Patti Abbott, Loren Eaton, BV Lawson, Sean Patrick Reardon and Sandra Seamans, who has posted a kind word or two at Detectives Beyond Borders, contributed stories as well. Congratulations, gang! I look forward to reading your work.)

And, since this site is about writing by DBB commenters, Dana King's Wild Bill is now available.

Thanks for the linkage, Peter. Yes, there are some very familiar names in this book.

And the Scandinavian crime fiction book looks pretty cool. I know the names of course, but I'll be interested in what the author has to say about them.

And that little online pamphlet is an interesting promotional device. I'm not sure if each of its entries reproduces an entire selection from the finished book or just an excerpt. I don't know, in other words, if the book is an kind of encyclopedia of lots of short entries, or a series of longer essays about a select gorup of writers.

Peter, Seana

Here's a link to Amazon for the overseas community:

http://www.amazon.com/Grimm-Tales-ebook/dp/B006O40EGG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1324621666&sr=8-1

I assume Book Depository also works.

Thanks, Adrian. Book Depository, not yet, but I know they are going to be getting it out to more distributors. I hope they will do Google ebooks, because then I could actually sell it through our store website.

I bought mine via the Untreed Reads site. I'm not even sure where Untreed Reads is based, for that matter.

Oh, those grim tales sound tempting :)


Merry Christmas, Peter.

Dana, I've now linked to the site as well. That's a fine interview with Charlie, deeper and more revealing than most of its kind.

Dorte, to you as well. Those stories could offer the additional benefit of serving as writing prompts and inducements to read the Grimms' tales.

Merry Christmas.

Hey, the man thinks more deeply about confronting the Almighty than most of us do.

Thanks for the linkage, Peter! Grimm Tales was a lot of fun to be in, and John Kenyon did a great job with the book.
