My Bouchercon 2016 panel: Rogue cops, fool's gold, and more!!!

I have the singular honor of being the first name on the panel schedule for Bouchercon 2016. That's because I'm moderating a session at 9 a.m., Thursday, Sept. 15, and it's a good one.

The panel is From Hank to Hendrix: Beyond Chandler and Hammett: Lesser Known Writers of the Pulp and Paperback Original Eras. This is the third year I'll moderate this panel, in which authors, critics, and editors discuss their favorite lesser-known crime writers of the past. The sessions always expand my appreciation of crime's fiction's range, and this year is no exception.

The panelists for 2016 are: Patti Abbott, Eric Beetner, Martin Edwards, Rick Ollerman, and Gary Phillips, and they already have me reading authors new to me. So come see us in LaGalleries 1, in the Marriott, 555 Canal St., New Orleans, 9 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 15.

It's a good one, all right. As always, I am enjoying the preparation for the panel.

Peter, I hope you file a post-panel report. I'd like to read it. Generally speaking, as a moderator for a discussion on crime fiction, how much does one need to have read or know?

This will be my eighth year modifying panels at Bouchercon, and I always file reports.

One ought to have read at least one book by each author on the panel and to know relevant information about each author. I over prepare, and I love doing so.

Does that mean you're coming to New Orleans?

I am planning to, but there is a possible schedule conflict that has come up, so I may not know for a couple of weeks. I have registered though.

Yikes! After last year, you deserve a hassle-free Bouchercon.

There's something about that season that seems to bring other things up for me. I have no idea why.

Bouchercon is unusually early this year, too. November seems to be safe, as you made it to Long Beach. Dallas in three years is pretty late, too.
