Bouchercon 2016, Part III: One panel and another mess of pictures

My only complaint about the panels on lesser-known writers of the pulp and paperback-original eras that I've moderated at the last three Bouchercons is that time inevitably runs out well before I run out of questions and the panelists out of answers.  This year's panelists helped out by anticipating some of those questions and incorporating the answers into their replies to questions I did ask. Eric Beetner, for example, offered some interesting comparisons of the writing style and literary chops of the two writers he discussed, William P. McGivern and Charles Williams.

I chided several of the panelists for stealing my questions, but I was grateful to be up there on stage with such interested panelists. Thanks, Eric, Martin Edwards, Rick Ollerman, and Gary Phillips. You can buy CDs and MP3 files of the panel and all other Bouchercon sessions at at VW Tapes Conference Recording,, purveyors of fine Bouchercon recordings for a number of years now.

Great pictures, great panel.

I was wishing that I had some talent as a sketch artist, as I have many moments in my head that I wish I could have captured. More along the lines of caricature, though not mocking.

Thanks and thanks. Do you have a camera? That would certainly sharpen your eye. One advantage of digital photography is that it allows endless experimentation at little or no cost after acquisition of the camera. If you have a mind for drawing, you just might have an eye for taking pictures.

I don't have a camera. I don't really know that I do have that kind of eye, but it's certainly something to think about.

Who knows? You have that kind of mind, you may have that kind of mind. Recognizing the moment is the first step, I think.
