Change is all around, isn’t it? As we move toward spring, warmer weather, budding gardens and longer days, things seem to change, even as they seem the same. So it is for us: Erin O’Donnell, our British Import and Small Press buyer, has moved on. She was presented with a dream job--working in a local comics shop--and with a background in graphic arts, she had to take it. We don’t blame her. You have to follow your bliss. For now, her duties have been split between those of us here, and we hope to be able to do the job as well as she did. .
Janine Wilson joins us as Erin leaves. Janine is a long-time customer and friend who works with us on Saturdays and the odd special occasion – or a day off from her full-time job. Janine has a broad range of taste in mystery and crime books – as long as they are well written and intriguing.
Fran Fuller joins us as Erin leaves. Fran is a recent transplant from Minneapolis, where she was the mystery expert at the Half Price bookstore. She has broad taste in books and broad knowledge too, so she’s going to fit in well.
And, speaking of spring, one of the other things that it brings is the return of baseball – and that leads us to another “new” thing we’re trying: a new section for the newsletter – The Sports Section. There are often lots of sports mysteries, especially in spring when there are more baseball mysteries, so we thought we’d try to group them. In this issue, you’ll find the baseball, fishing and golf mysteries back there, at the end of the New from the Rest group. We may try this for other specialties – such as culinary or animals – if they crop up in large numbers in a single newsletter. Look it over – nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
