It’s all in their heads
Next month is the Anthony Boucher Memorial World Mystery Convention. Inevitably known as Bouchercon, it’s an annual convention of creators and devotees of mystery and detective fiction.
I’m looking forward to moderating a panel on psychological crime fiction and thrillers. The panel is called Unstable Tales, and it’s on Thursday 12th, between 4 and 5 pm in the Grand West room.
I’m particularly excited, because the psychological is probably the fastest growing sub genre in crime fiction. It’s certainly very popular, as Paul’s Hawkins (The Girl on The Train) and Ruth Ware (The Lying Game) and so many others can attest.
So if you’re at the conference, come along and ask the authors what it takes to write the ultimate brainy thriller. On the panel are Lisa Alber, Lynne Constantine, Valerie Constantine, Mark Edwards, Andrew Pyper and Eric Rickstad. All great writers, so it should be a fascinating hour. If you’re unable to come (sad), let me know if you have any questions that you’d like to ask. I’ll blog about it afterwards, and let you know what they say.
