Sunset On The Blog

Thank you note from Palm Springs
After six years and more than 650 posts, the Life Death And Fog blog will become inactive – available for reference and search but having no new posts.

I want to thank the readers with special appreciation for those who have commented on and, at times, corrected my entries. I also wanted to thank The Rap Sheet for the inspiration, though of course that blog is far more informative in areas that matter to crime fiction writers and readers. Nonetheless The Rap Sheet prompted me to give blogging a shot.  And I’ve enjoyed it immensely.

Six years is a pretty long run as these things go. Though I could have used a copy editor and proof reader at times, I think what’s left in the files might be fun or helpful to others despite the occasional glitch.  A note: The most popular posts are listed on the left side of this page.

There are a number of reasons for the discontinuation. One is for me to stop ranting and raving at the gov’ment. There are plenty of folks, (more qualified) doing that on an obsessive basis. I also need to do some regular writing work. I have a novel that needs to be completed, also a fourth in a quartet of novellas that needs to be written as well as some finished work to be placed.

My web site will remain in place as well.  I also plan to use my non-mystery Face book to remain in touch with friends.

If you need something to read online, in addition to The Rap Sheet let me recommend Bill Crider’s Pop Culture Magazine and The Thrilling Detective. Also, for the print-minded, like me, there is Mystery Scene Magazine and the crime fiction review Bible, Deadly Pleasures.


So long,
Ron

I'm sorry to hear that you're closing the blog, Ron. Your posts have contributed greatly to my appreciation of the genre.

Cheers,
