can't quite remember the sequence of events, and I'm not sure I have all the names straight, but suffice it to say that the first day of Crimefest Bristol
has restored my faith in the rationality of the human species. And that's pretty good for a crime convention's first day.
More to follow after the pitifully meager amount of sleep that remains to me before tomorrow's panels.
Among the day's discoveries--possibly foremost among them--is that 160 ml. of tonic mixed with the gin is the perfect amount for an exquisite Hendrick's and tonic, a conclusion verified repeatedly beyond all possibility of statistical error.
I have enjoyed being carried along in Ali Karim's wake, and have also had the pleasure of meeting Craig Sisterson
in person, years after serving as a judge for him in New Zealand's Ngaio Marsh crime fiction award
I also met up with Western Australia's Alan Carter
, and thanks to David Whish-Wilson for letting me know about him. Alan: I missed your panel this morning, but I bought Getting Warmer
. Stop me if you see me, and I'll ask you to sign it.
