Dear TCL Readers: It’s sweltering as I write this, as a heat wave has descended upon the Northeast after pummeling the Southwest for quite some time. It turns my brain into mush, to be frank — I always think I’m going to be productive in summers, and it never quite happens. This summer, of course, has an extra variable, in that it’s still the publication month of my latest anthology,
Oh hello: it's me, Best Evidence! A preoccupation of my readers (and Exhibit B. shoppers) is the liminal space where real cases and crime-fiction authors meet; the "Solved!" and "Unsolved!" books, and variations on that theme, never stay in stock. You spend the most time in both circles of the Venn of anyone, so I'd love your thoughts on those overlaps.
This is...really nebulous! I too have summer brain. - SDB
My brain turns to mush in heat as well, which is why my heart and pen are aiming to make Alaska home.
