Santa’s Little Helper

’Tis the season to be busy, tra-la-la-la-lah, etc. So, rather than write full posts, here’s a few Weinmanesque Irish crime fic link-type smatterings that have popped up over the last week or so …

Gerard Brennan’s MYTHS AND MOBSTERS sounds like a terrific idea.

Colm Keegan interviews Kevin Power at Uiscebot.

Yet more good news for Stuart Neville …

… and here’s Stuart on AMERICAN TABLOID.

Who knew Ali Karim had a blog?

John McFetridge is still on his meta-fiction crime spree at Bouchercon.

Finally, the Irish Sentinel prints the truth in the news. Ish.
