Two of The Original Crimedogs (which would make a good name for a band) are profiled online today: Victor Gischler over at the Secret Dead Blog, and Neil Smith at Tribe's blog. Both of them have new books on the way (Shotgun Opera and The Drummer, respectively) and both give good interview.
In other news: I told Bryon I would post this last week but forgot - he's put up a new blog for people searching for Bouchercon roommates. Appropriately enough, it's called the Bouchercon Roommate Search. Check it out if you are looking for a roommate, a place to stay, or an opportunity to give Bryon a hard time.
A tech tip: DON'T POST FROM WORD INTO BLOGGER!!!! Word inserts a whole bunch of HTML tags that are declared using a namespace. They look like <ns:tag>. Unfortunately, Word never gets around to defining the namespace, so that when Blogger packages the post for syndication, it causes the whole file to be invalid. The end result is your updates don't show on the site. Once I get the file it's too late to fix it, but I am writing to Blogger and suggesting they strip this out. 'Til then: Just Say No.
