Yes, no sooner is this year's Crime Fest over and done with, then we can start looking forward to next year's. The popularity of 2008's convention has seen the every-two year status increased to annually.
The dates to set aside are 14 - 17 May 2009.
The toastrix is Meg Gardiner and one of the Guests of Honour is Simon Brett. Negotiations are under way to secure the International (ie translated) GoH.
More snippets from this year's event to follow over the next few days.
