Booksense 76 Fall Mystery Picks 

They've just been posted. (Link from Publisher's Lunch.)

I'm very glad to see that David Bowker's selling really well in the independent shops. I read the UK edition (the title over there is RAWHEAD) earlier this summer and I loved it. Not only does it send up publishing, the writing process, and has a huge dose of black comedy, it's quite, quite twisted. The things friends will do for each other while quoting from M.R. James and Sheridan LeFanu.

Dan Fesperman, who I seem to talk about here as much as I do about her (What is it about Baltimore journalist types?) is also on the list, and deservedly so. Do I need to say again how wonderful this book is? How if you're not reading it, you are seriously missing out? I thought not.
