Well, once again I've returned in one piece from the city that holds hostage the remains of Edgar Allan Poe. I wasn't tarred or feathered or harmed in any way (maybe they're afraid of my glowering stare).
I taped a segment for WYPR 88.1 FM, the public radio station that will run on Oct 7, Poe's death day, on the Maryland Morning show hosted by Sheilah Kast. Their Culture editor, Tom Hall, interviewed both Jeff Jerome (that cranky Poe House curator) and me in a kind of mock debate. I'll post a link when it runs. At 5PM I was live on the Marc Steiner show on WEAA 88.9 FM, again with Jerome (I couldn't shake the guy), debating and taking callers. You can listen to the podcast of the Steiner show here.
Look for more Baltimore press coverage when I return to their city for Bouchercon, a mystery writer's convention, where I'll be on an Edgar Allan Poe panel with Louis Bayard, Daniel Stashower and Shelley Costa Bloomfield.
