Be There or Be Square!

The Austin Chronicle: Books: Solving ConMisterio: "Solving ConMisterio
A preview
BY JESSE SUBLETT

With SXSW, ACL, and the last KKK microdemonstration, Austin needs another convention like a hole in the head, right? Well, ConMisterio is a convention for people who just can't seem to write or read enough about holes in heads – bullet holes, that is, along with an endless variety of other means of sudden exit from the planet.

Loosely modeled after the fabulously successful Bouchercon (going on its 37th year), ConMisterio convenes for its second annual gathering July 14-16 at the DoubleTree. It will feature the usual author discussion panels, author readings, a banquet, a dealer room, and creative loafing opportunities. (Full disclosure: I'll be one of the authors attending the convention and promoting work, but I'd be writing this even if I weren't.)"

Bill, did you ever come across the books that Jesse Sublett co-authored a few years ago? Two of the titles were Kill Spot and Jazz Man with Chad Byers. There were a couple of others, but I no longer have them on my to-find lists. I think I saw them mentioned once, but never could find anything else about them and don't know if they actually were published. I enjoyed Sublett's earlier mysteries.

I have the earlier series but not the co-authored books. If you want some noir stuff, read Sublett's memoir, Never the Same Again. All dark, all true.
