y 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.
