St. Patrick's Day

It just occurred to me that I have an Irish crime story. It's called "The Rose of Tralee," and it's in Murder most Irish. The best thing about the story is that it's right next to one by James Joyce. This is undoubtedly the only time Joyce and I will be in the same anthology. I just wish they'd spelled my name right on the back cover.

    OK - I just ordered it. Thanks for the headsup, O'Bill.

  2. Didn't know Joyce had written crime fiction. What's the story called? I don't think it's "Drive Me Hard" or "Flog Me To Death" or "Hellblazers at Dawn".

  3. Can't recall the title, and the book's a long way off.

  7. Bill, that's something not many can say, fiction or non-fiction.
