All The Dead Voices - Events

I'm doing a couple of Irish events over the next while to mark the publication of the fourth Ed Loy novel, All The Dead Voices, in Ireland and the UK (it's not out in the US until July). First up, I'll be reading with the splendid Brian McGilloway in Waterstone's, Dawson Street, Dublin on Tuesday, April 14th at 6.30. Then on Thursday the 16th, again with Brian, I'll be reading at David Torrans' wonderful No Alibis bookstore in Belfast at 7.oo. 
In May, I'll be appearing at CrimeFest in Bristol (May 14-17). I'll be on a panel on Thursday the 14th at 4.30, talking forgotten authors with Mary Andrea Clark, Barry Forshaw, Sarah Rayne and Martin Edwards. I suggested Margaret Millar, who is pretty much out of print everywhere now, and her husband Ken, who was once rather better known as Ross Macdonald, but who, despite my insistence on namechecking him everywhere I go to a degree that borders on the pathological, is largely forgotten these days - witness the recent Guardian list of crime novels you had to read before you died, which found room for five from Agatha Christie, four from Michael Dibdin and three from Ian Fleming but nothing from either Millar. 
I'll also be on a panel at 9.30 on Saturday morning with Gyles Brandreth, Judith Cutler, Andrew Pepper and David Stuart Davies called: Criss Cross: Conan-Doyle & Poe Anniversary Panel - Past & Present, which will discuss the evolution of the police procedural and PI sub-genres over the years.
In July, I'll be in Harrogate for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing  Festival, where I'll be taking part in a panel called Emerald Noir on Saturday July 25th at 10.30 am with fellow Irish crime writers Ken Bruen, Brian McGilloway, Gene Kerrigan and Ruth Dudley Edwards. Coupled with the fact that it's St. Patrick's Day tomorrow, I should probably round out this post with some kind of summons to celebratory glass-hoisting and such, and normally would, but I'm off booze for Lent this year. In theory, or at least, in Ireland, you're allowed Paddy's Day off Lent, but I don't think I'm going to avail of that particular indulgence. If I were anywhere else, you bet, but Paddy's Day in Dublin is like an advertisement for sobriety, an ugly, joyless festival of drunkenness. It's too close to home; it's all A Bit Too Irish.

Macdonald is not a favorite of mine--I can appreciate his greatness intellectually, but something about his writing doesn't quite connect with me--but any list that doesn't mention him has some failings.

Best of luck with the launch. I'm looking forward to Ed's return to the States this summer.

If it makes you feel any better, I’m a great appreciator of Ross Macdonald although that does seem to be an increasingly acquired taste these days, even amongst those of us who are aware of/remember him.

And of course John Connolly is a great (and vocal) enthusiast of the man’s work.

Hi Declan
I still remember a wonderful night out in Melbourne at a crime festival down there where we briefly met...I hope you're well and dandy. Congrats on the Edgar shortlisting...fantastic stuff. I hope Mr Loy pulls it in for you! By the way, I've just read The Doomsters and The Galton Case - two of the best for me. But don't forget David Goodis (The Blonde on the Street Corner, particularly) and Ted Lewis (Jack's Return Home, ie. Get Carter) on your panel...! Hope to bump into you again...though not during Lent.
cheers
Lenny Bartulin
