Calling all fans of Irish crime fiction

He's a novelist. He's a blogger, a father and gracious host. And now, Declan Burke of Crime Always Pays is turning midwife to a fascinating collection of perspectives on Irish crime fiction. Why fascinating? Because he's asking the authors themselves to contribute essays on various aspects of this fascinating topic, and quite a number have responded, including John Connolly, Colin Bateman, Declan Hughes, Ruth Dudley Edwards, Gene Kerrigan, Gerard Donovan, Brian McGilloway, Neville Thompson, Adrian McKinty and Gerard Brennan.

Get the full scoop here, where you can also weigh in with suggestions for the project.

This project sounds terrific. I've always been a fan of the essay, so the thought a book devoted to a series of essays on crime fiction is heavenly. Good on the Irish.

It will be nice to read crime writers' comments about crime writing. It's interesting enough when authors talk about who or what influenced them. That many of those influences will likely be new to me should make the project all the more interesting.
