It would be very pleasant to spend a few days in Bristol at a crime convention after all I did spend much of 1964 in that city cutting up a partially dismembered body.

So are you going to Crimefest, Karen or Uriah? Sounds good, and unlike Harrogate is not in school hols. However, 125 quid -- bit excessive. Do they do discounts for websites and reviewers? ;-)

I am seriously tempted perhaps we should try for a group discount?
