Bloody Words organizer Peter Sellers tells me Greg Ward's stuff is very dark and recommends Water Damage, the Carpet King and his new one The Internet Bride. He says they wanted an international look to the panel- mean streets around

the world rather than the expected American thing. Chambers is British, Rippen is Dutch, Latour is Cuban but has had one noirish novel published in the States. Greg Ward was born in Britain but has lived in Canada for years and sets his work here.

I think the panel, and your invitation to moderate it, marks a turn toward noir for the conference, a trend organizaers hope to encourage in Canadian mystery fiction.
