Regarding the piece on the blog-vs.-print debate in complete-review.com linked above...

It includes the following statement: "In certain areas Internet coverage has long superseded newspaper coverage: review-coverage of genre books (mystery, science fiction, romance) is far superior in range and, for the most part, quality than what can be found in newspapers."

Do you think that's true? Are crime novels being better reviewed on the net than in print?

Because as someone who has long written for both, I don't buy it.

Shocked The Dawn Patrol isn't on the awards list

Depp is also The Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.

I like to imagine Johnny Depp hanging out at his house and letting the answering machine pick up when Burton calls these days.

"He'll keep calling me. He'll keep calling me. He'll make me feel guilty...I'll go, I'll go, I'll go."

And then sitting on his car, banging on the wheel and screaming before going.

When I read that the mystery award was called the T Jefferson Parker award, I immediately googled the news and his web site because I thought they named awards after dead people. Do you know the cirmcumstances as to why this award (the 100th annual mystery award) was named after him?

Does this mean that Parker himself will never be nominated again?
