What Folks Say
In my opinion, the Chicago Love is Murder conference is the best bang for your buck for any mystery conference around. This was my third time attending and I have to say it gets better every year. Here’s a brief run-down of some of the panel discussions, the behind-the-scenes takes you won’t get on a roster, and those ‘you just had to be there moments’ as Tweeted and Facebooked by attendees.

An Interview with Local Featured Author Robert Goldsborough

by Luisa Buehler

LIM's Luisa Buehler had the opportunity recently to interview 2015 Local Featured Author Robert Goldsborough, author of numerous books in the revived Nero Wolfe and Snap Malek series, and other titles as well. He authored seven Nero Wolfe books in the 1980s and '90s, then wrote five Snap Malek Chicago historical mysteries (set in the 1930s and '40s) beginning in 2000, then returned to writing Nero Wolfe stories. In late 2013, Publishers Weekly gave a starred review to his latest Nero Wolfe novel, "Murder in the Ball Park." PW is very selective in handing out its starred reviews, and Bob was honored to again receive that merit, which was also awarded to his "Archie Meets Nero Wolfe" a little more than a year earlier. The PW reviewer called the novel " superb." Bob is currently workong on a new book, "Archie in the Crosshairs." You can read more about Bob and his books at his website, www.robertgoldsborough.com

What is the origin of the phrase, "Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang"?

It was in a quote by renowned film critic Pauline Kael, who said, in 1968: "The words 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' which I saw on an Italian movie poster, are perhaps the briefest statement imaginable of the basic appeal of movies."
