The 2014 World Tour continues tomorrow with a train ride to NoirCon in Philadelphia. This will be my first NoirCon, l so I’m not 100% sure what to expect, except that I’ll see some old friends, make new ones, and get to meet a few in person who have heretofore been only internet presences to me. A full report is scheduled for November 10.
After that it’s a week of normalcy, then off toLos Angeles for Bouchercon where I’ll be hosting the first Noir at the (Breakfast) Bar, a/k/a N@bB. Stop by room Harbor A at 9:00 AM PST on Friday (November 14) to hear Les Edgerton, Tim Hallinan, John McFetridge, and me read flash pieces guaranteed to entertain and get you out inside of twenty minutes, after which the Bouchercon organizers will throw us out. (Apparently my reputation precedes me.) The event is BYOB: Bring Your Own Breakfast. Added incentive: the Godfather of Noir at the Bar, Peter Rozovsky, may make a cameo appearance. If he does not, any money collected for admission to the event will be cheerfully refunded.
