Hey, try to get Walter to join us! Last year's gabfest with you and Loren Estleman, Deborah Morgan, Jerry Healy and Peter Sellers in the little bar there was a real highlight.

And oh, the stories we will tell...

This year's meeting doesn't look quite as hard-boiled in tone as last year, so I guess it will be up to us to toughen up things a bit. Marianne, bring your brass knucks. And Kerry, of course, I know you'll be carrying...

(Actually, it's always a treat to meet folks face to face. If any other Rara Avians are going to be in T.O. that weekend, DO let Bill know... )
