All the orders following our flood were a tremendous help and greatly appreciated. Thank you for eveyone's thoughfulness.

An additional thanks for the patience exhibited in getting those ordered dispatched. Following the chaos, located copies of certain titles has taken some time.

• Between other obligations, work continues on several projects as I try to complete the individual author biographies for The Scarlet Patrol plus the introduction for The Adventures of Jehannum Smith.

• As well, work nears completion on L'Atlantide (The Queen of Atlantis) and the next Sax Rohmer volume, The Voice of Kali.


• Despite long-term plans, recent events have factored in to cancelling our travel arrangements and BDB will not be appearing at Bouchercon 2012 in Cleveland later this week.

• A new announcement is coming soon bringing several new projects to the BDB fold. Watch for it.
