A Tie-In Post

This post connects to a forthcoming post which will appear here about sense of place in fiction.

Me (at the ripe, old age of 18) with an East German Border Guard

The Berlin Wall, after the fall

Rio Fortuna Waterfall, Costa Rica

Rice Fields in Bali, Indonesia

Not the first time I've held hands with a monkey...

Sunset in Tunisia

Along the BC coast, north of Vancouver

The beautiful BC coast

The sunset from my apartment in New West, over Coquitlam

Bonus points if you recognize this place...

Vancouver, from Stanley Park

The walking tails from Rocky Point Park (which are in THE FRAILTY OF FLESH, the follow-up to WHAT BURNS WITHIN, due out in November.

Now, for some amusement with setting, check out Have You Ever Been To Scotland, Dag? and while you're there, congratulate Russel on his book deal with Five Leaves. From Publishers Marketplace:

Russel McLean's THE GOOD SON, introducing a troubled Scots PI, who is dragged into a world of lies, violence, long-held secrets, and murky criminal double-crosses while investigating an apparent suicide, to Ross Bradshaw at Five Leaves, for publication in Winter 2008/2009, by Allan Guthrie at Jenny Brown Associates.

Can you tell I'm excited about this one? This means an excellent book to look forward to this fall... along with THE FRAILTY OF FLESH, of course, but I'm more excited about Russel's book because I haven't read it yet.

This just in: Brian's review of CRIMSON ORGY is now online. He makes me want to read it.

Was the Mining Museum used as a locale for the X-files? If it wasn't, the building they DID use was strikingly similar.

Hurrah Lyman! Someone finally got it!

Seeing all those pictures makes me want to go travelling.
