I just got back to L.A. tonight… I’m sure you’ll be seeing a bunch of new posts after I unpack, read my mail, and catch up on the trades. In the mean time, here are some photos from the Left Coast Crime conference… with more photos to come. You can click on the pictures for a larger images.
Up first are Joel Goldman, myself, and Victor Gischler at the big, mass signing on Friday night…just a few hours before Joel and Victor hit the dance floor. The next photo is me with Chicago Sun Times critic (and frequent commentor here) David Montgomery, who left with a suitcase full of ARCs. That’s the multi-talented Bill Crider with his arm around me… and hey, look, there’s me with author David Morrell, co-president of the International Thriller Writers, plotting world domination. Finally, here’s a big group photo of the mob of us going to dinner on Wednesday night…I’m the guy you don’t see taking the picture. The folks are Nan Lyle, Mrs. Bob Levinson, Mr. Bob Levinson, Harley Jane Kozak, Joel Goldman, Twist Phelan, Dr. Doug Lyle and Dan Hale.

My one regret is that I missed the performance by Victor “Disco Vic” Gischler on the dance floor.
Hmm…I don’t see me. Was the picture so bad it won’t even display? Hard to believe with two such handsome gents as Lee and I.
Don’t know about you all, but I’m exhausted.
Oops — the photo has been added. I shouldn’t post to my blog when I am half asleep.
Hey, that’s not too bad. You can barely see the enormous zit I had on my forehead all weekend.
Thanks for sharing, David!
No problem! 🙂
We missed you there, Raelynn. David Morrell talked you up at one point, I think during the ITW meeting.
Well, damn! Didn’t anyone miss me? That’s okay…nevermind…I’ll just fade away. No..no…I insist. It’s okay. Hey, Bill? I’m sorry I couldn’t stand in for you on the panel I was supposed to on with you. And Lee? You don’t have to feel sorry for me for missing that panel with you and Konrath either. Honest. It’s okay…outta sight…outta mind. I understand. But David! etu?
Of course I missed you, Elaine. Silly. I didn’t know you read Lee’s blog, though! I ran into Cornelia Read and we talked about you. I never got my hug, though.
It’s a good thing you weren’t there to be on Joe’s panel…you’d have shot him.
Awww…you missed me? Really and truly? Smooch to ‘ya.
We’ll catch up at the Edgar’s okay?
I’ve been lurking on Lee’s blog. Muhahahah.
What? Cornelia didn’t give you the hug I sent? I keep telling her not to be intimidated by you…that you’re really-deep down-a sweetheart. 🙂 As for Konrath-it did cross my mind that I might have to kill him at some point. I couldn’t take my Ruger with me naturally, but I’m still good with a choke hold.
