Indeed, congratulations, Mark! I'm only mildly surprised that it took until Bill's mention of Barrett to catch up with him, since he doesn't get a fraction of the attention he deserves, but I'm lucky enough to have seen his work in sf, horror, and western as well as hb/suspense fiction, and going back to the beginning of his career some forty years ago (though I caught up with him first ca. 1978).

Very glad to have made your f2f acquaintance at Bouchercon last year. TM
