This could be your last opportunity to hear my silky Norn Iron accent via the wonder of the worldwide web. I'm pretty sure that the BBC's Listen Again links only last for seven days. So, to hear what I have to say about post-Troubles crime fiction, go here, then hit the Listen Again link in the top right corner (the crime bit starts just about 15 minutes in).
Also, on the topic of radio, check Colin Bateman's blog for a tiny bit of info on a radio drama he's working on (entry dated 10/07/08).
And Adrian McKinty is blogging again. This time about the new book, Fifty Grand. He's also posted a link to a very interesting article about his time in Cuba.
So that's two established Northern Irish crime fiction writers happily blogging away. Newcomer, Stuart Neville is also posting about his writing experiences at randomish intervals. But what about the rest of you lads? Okay, so Mr McGilloway posts on the Macmillan New Writers blog from time to time, and has been known to guest blog at Crime Always Pays (as has McKinty and Millar), but what of Bailie, Downey, Johnson et al? Are they not going to get in on this time bandit?
Your public awaits, lads. Get blogging.
