So come on, come all – come find the next several thousand mysteries that you just have to read.

Carnival of the Criminal Minds, No. 13

April 1, 2008

bigtex1.jpgThe lucky thirteenth installment of the Carnival is pulling your leg at Bill Crider’s Pop Culture Magazine. Setting up the rides and freak shows on April Fool’s Day should not reflect on Mr. Crider’s dignified self. No indeed. In fact, if he ever had any pretense of dignity, posting items about large gator sightings, crocodile thefts, and the progressive nature of his home state should have disabused everyone of that idea some time ago.

Come along for the rides as Mr. Crider shows us around his personal list of the blogs every crime fiction aficionado should read.

Up next: the carnival is traveling to my backyard – to Barbara Fister’s Place.  Obviously, I was not feeling terribly clever the day I named that particular corner of the internets.
