The following I had clipped from a Sister in Crime newletter. Sorry for the
formatting, but in the free version of Eudora, don't know how to simply
reformat this post. Looking at the OldNorton site, I would have never
thought of some of the writers -- like Ishmael Reed -- as being crime
writers. I like Ish's work, but thought of him as a literary/mainstream
writer who used crime in his plots. May help if you get the program, or
whatever the conference is giving out, and contact some of the writers
