Will you please add my contribution to the list?

The Doctor's First Murder by Robert Hare

Todd Mason said...

Certainly, John...thanks.

What a great job you're doing, Todd.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Patti! Now to get around and touch base with everyone as well as you have over the years. Very happy also to have your new and redux posts....

Jack Seabrook said...

Thanks, Todd! Did you see that Otto Penzler's book collection is being auctioned off? High prices but some very cool books there.

Todd Mason said...

Thank you, Jack...yes, Penzler's liquidation of his collection is a key topic of discussion among bibliophiles and crime fiction readers of many though not all stripes...I, like another commenter I've seen recently, prefer a good reading copy to a pristine item one shouldn't breath on.

Late on getting to this one, and so am late in pointing out that (for me at least) the link to Todd's own review (of the EQ anthology) doesn't work. / Denny Lien

Todd Mason said...

Denny--I didn't finish the review of your kind gift, and still at this late date, haven't. It sits there as a nudge to me.

Thanks again!
