Read Tim Hallinan’s coverage of Bouchercon, including the awards ceremony, on the Murder is Everywhere blog:
It’s Saturday night and my vocal chords have been shredded to terrycloth by three days of shouting affectionately (sometimes adverbs do clarify) at people in crowded, deafeningly loud hotel ballrooms and corridors.
I’ve had the time of my life, and so have a hundred or more other writers and about 1500 amazingly sweet and patient fans.
