Sounds like a fun time, Bill!

<< Loren D. Estleman was a guest of honour. I got to talk to him a couple of times, and Mr. Smith and I had a drink with him and his wife and some others on Friday night. He knows tons about film noir and old hardboiled stuff, and quoted the line from THE MALTESE FALCON that gives the name to the list off the top of his head. Anyone reading this list would have a great time talking to him, I'm sure. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the Amos Walker series, and more of his westerns and other books.

I've read some of his westerns as well as the Amos books. I think you'll like 'em. I haven't tried his more mainstream historical novels, though. Anyone have any comments about those?
