The Carnival returns to The Rap Sheet, where it was first hosted over a year ago, for it’s newest incarnation – the Solstice Edition, otherwise known as “where on earth did 2008 go?” Since the ringmaster of the multi-ring circus, The Rap Sheet, has been busy with editorial gigs and book deadlines, not to mention writing much of what might be the most essential blog for crime fiction readers, he has every right to ask that question. But in the meantime, he has rounded up a number of entertaining acts such as a book cover too good to miss from a blog that judges books by their covers, news of the tempting San Francisco Noir Film Festival as well as soon-to-be-released DVD collections for crime fiction lovers, and news of books past and to come. The virtual concessions are being handled by John’s Grill, mentioned in The Maltese Falcon, now celebrating its 100th year.
Next up: A return egagement at Mysteries in Paradise to start off the new year.
