Me and the Mystery Morgue
Since there’s been some chatter in the backblogs about it, I suppose it’s my duty to point y’all to Jeff Cohen’s intrepid interview of yours truly at Mystery Morgue and the paragraph in question:
How does one get to be a cabana boy/girl? Is a physical examination necessary?
the Cabana Boy thing. Here’s where I must confess that I’ve almost
forgotten the origin, though it started off in the early days of
Confessions when the only commenters I had were a group of guys who
were the original (for better or for worse) Cabana Crew. But when the
day comes for a redesign of the site, the blogroll will be revamped
considerably—and the Cabana Boys will be retired, along with other 80s
fads like leg warmers and horrible perms.
Then again, I never underestimate the power of inertia, so there may be a reprieve in the offing…
More seriously, the interview addresses my original interest in crime fiction, how I choose books for review and why I had to quote my man Shel.
