Lest we forget…

It is a Day of Remembrance and a chance to view the crime fiction world through different eyes. Here is a glimpse into how some authors have dealt with the wars and war veterans.

Meanwhile….
Page down on this blog post from Read Me Deadly to find some interesting crime fiction book titles.

From the blog In Reference to Murder I found this post from 2007 that has a great list of Veteran Mysteries.

If I may leave you with Terry Kelly’s song – A Pittance of Time

It’s a pittance of time
For the boys and the girls who went over
In peace may they rest, may we never forget why they died

    This is a fine, interesting article. I enjoyed reading it, and I look forward to reading more of your articles in the future.

    By the way, I would like to invite you to join my blogathon, “The Great Breening Blogathon:” https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2017/09/07/extra-the-great-breening-blogathon/. It is celebrating the life and work of Joseph Breen, the enforcer of the Motion Picture Production Code between 1934 and 1954. As we honor his birthday, which is on October 14, we will be discussing and analyzing the Code era, breening films from other eras, and writing about our own ideas for classic movies. One doesn’t have to agree with the Code and Mr. Breen to enjoy that! I hope you will do me the honor of joining. We could really use your talent!

    Yours Hopefully,

      Hello Tiffany, that’s quite the endeavour you are launching and I wish you luck with it. Unfortunately, I am preparing for Bouchercon both as a panelist as well as some behind the scenes work and have little time available. Thank you for reaching out
      Kind regards,
