Oooh, a book, I must buy it! Except some total retard has cloned both my cards and I can't use them now! Have a good weekend, everyone.

Looks great. Schechter has become quite the true crime historian, and I'm glad to see the focus on the more "serious" or "literary" writers.

My sister and I are both big readers. Just yesterday she asked what I was reading, and when I told her I've read eleven books in a row which were "turn of the century" true crime, I sensed a dismissive attitude in her nod. "Oh." But, as you know, there IS good writing in the genre beyond the sensationalist pop stuff. Maybe someday we'll no longer have to defend our reading tastes; Schechter seems determined to bring that day to us sooner rather than later.
