am pleased to have been quoted at length in the Irish Examiner's review of Akashic Books' upcoming Belfast Noir
volume of crime stories. The piece appears under the entirely appropriate headline "`Belfast Noir': Move over Scandinavia, the Irish are the real thrillers ...
," and it calls me "an international authority on crime-writing, whose blog ‘Detectives Beyond Borders’ has for many years been the last word on all things noir." Grateful thanks to my Irish peeps, and don't go accusing them of committing blarney.

I'll discuss Belfast Noir
next week at Bouchercon
in Long Beach. The panel is called "Belfast Noir: Stories of Mayhem and Murder from Northern Ireland
," and it happens at 11:30 a.m., Friday, Nov. 14. I'm not saying I'll buy a pint of Guinness for everyone who shows up, but there's only one way for you to find out.

Over at Dietrich Kalteis' Off the Cuff
, which has published a number of my noir photos, I put down my camera to join Dietrich and co-host Martin Frankson for a chat about crime-fiction conferences
. Dietrich and Martin talk a bit about how how authors might approach conventions from a business point of view. I talk fun, including a link to the story of the wandering bridesmaids of Bouchercon 2009
took the two author photos at Noircon 2014
, the most fun one can have without leaving Philadelphia. Here are two more photos, from the event's concluding program at Port Richmond Books
, just before the pierogi-fueled piss-up
