Meet the "PULP FICTION, BABY" panel at today's Bouchercon -- and -- me, psyched to be 'in the front row' in he clear banter pattern with gregarious Canadian authors Ron Brunet and Tanis and the aspiring NY politico author on the rise Todd Monahan.

THE BIG PANEL WHO LET NOIR GO DARK AND THE LIGHT FIND THE CRACKS TO EMANATE:

pictured with class & distinction:  Howard Owen, Gatsbyesque Jack Getze, Josh Eeyore Stallings, Me - who 'posed the panel', more than medieval Kate Laity and down front - emphasizing that NOIR is timeless because 'it's so f--kin' cool'. (Gregarious moderator Les Edgerton still at the podium being courted by fans - no way would he stop for a mere photo-opp)  ~ Damn glad to have been enlightened by the wise guy banter of this noir-torious crew ~ Absolutely*Kate

A Todd Monahan photo - our man in the Albany governmental rise of talent . . . remember you read it here first, folks.
