Mark me down, too.

Of course, we can mention JDM's Gold Medal entries, like the fine _Dead Low Tide_ in keeping with this month's GM theme.

_Black Lizard Anthology_(1987) writes:

"I will say only that anybody who wants to write mysteries should buy a copy of _Dead, Low Tide and memorize it. It is without flaw and filled with sensational observation about America circa 1953."
