My Bouchercon 2014 panels

I'll moderate two panels at Bouchercon 2014 in Long Beach, and I am excited about both.

On Friday, Nov. 14, at 11:30 a.m., it's

Belfast Noir: Stories of Mayhem and Murder from Northern Ireland, with Gerard Brennan,  Paul Charles, Adrian McKinty, and Stuart Neville.

Then I'm back at 3 p.m. for

Beyond Hammett, Chandler, and Spillane: Lesser Known Writers of the Pulp and Paperback Eras,  Max Allan Collins, Sara J. Henry, Charles Kelly, Gary Phillips, and Sarah Weinman. Each will discuss one of his or her favorite authors, a list that includes Dan J. Marlowe, Joseph Nazel, Dolores Hitchens, and to be announced.
So, one panel with some of my favorite writers from the planet's most dynamic crime fiction scene, and another with some of crime fiction's sharpest minds shining their intellectual searchlights into out-of-the-way corners of the crime fiction world. This is going to be fun

Both panels look great, Peter. I'm looking forward to this.

One of my verification words for this comment is "Parker," auspicious for a crime fiction convention.

Between the forecasts for fine panels and fine weather, this could be a hell of a Bouchercon.

If the weather's too fine, no one will be at the panels. But I'm Californian and get this stuff all the time. So I'm in--definitely the first and most probably the second as well.

Bright sunshine and clear skies always provide a welcome place to socialize and to recover one's strength between panels. The outdoor walkway between the two hotels in Baltimore in 2008 is fondly remembered by many. I'm sure. I made some friends there, thanks to the weather. I hope the architecture at the Long Beach hotel will provide similar opportunities.

Looking forward to it, as much as I look forward to anything.

Wow, that's a babbling outburst by dour Ulster Presbyterian standards. I am touched, and also very much looking forward to the panel.
