Left Coast Crime - Update #2

Already Monday! Yesterday LCC 09 began in earnest. I attended sessions where authors told us what they like to read, learnt about the History of the Mystery from Kate Stine, about books set in Victorian England, had my own 15 minutes of fame , and then went to what for me was the pick of the day, Funny Bones, a panel moderated by Donna Andrews, about using humour in mysteries.

Last night we went to a luau (feast), were blessed by an Hawaian priest, watched some hula dancing, and then saw a one act play House Without a Key, a mystery set in 1925 in Honolulu. It is a Charlie Chan mystery, with Charlie Chan played excellently by Ron Serrao.

Already this morning we have been to a continental breakfast, featuring 12 new authors. And Vicki Delaney has given me a reprint of her first novel WHITEOUT.
