WOW! CONGRATULATIONS. What are you going to do with the million dollar check that goes along with the honor?

Bill Crider said...

Thanks. I'll probably buy books.

Randy Johnson said...

Good deal, Bill!

Karin said...

Congratulations!

Todd Mason said...

Well-deserved...I've been hoping they'd get around to Bob Ray.

Seriously, though, congratulations!

I know of Alter, but the others aside from you two are new to me, unless I'm being unusually un-memorious today.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, all.

Todd, Carlton Stowers is an Edgar-winning true-crime writer. He does a lot of other nonfiction, too. The others are probably better known in Texas than around the country, except for Judy, of course.

Rick Robinson said...

CONGRATS, again.

I'm assuming Kinky Friedman will be there to congratulate you. If not, he should be. I sure do wish I could be, but apparently my invitation got lost in the mail. What with the move I couldn't have made it anyway, I guess. Does this mean you get to add MTHF after your name, showing the honorarium? Um, on second thought, looking at that combination of letters, maybe not.

Bill Crider said...

Maybe WTF would be more appropriate. I think that's what a lot of people will think when they see my name there.

Benjie said...

More congratulatory remarks, Bill. Again, it's about time.

Toby O'B said...

Congratulations, Sir!

Jerry House said...

Kudos!

Cap'n Bob Napier said...

You and the Alamo, timeless icons of Texas history. Sincere congrats.

Gerard Saylor said...

Nice.

Mel Odom said...

Congrats, Bill!
