The Maltese Omelette Radio Show: February 27

This really sounds like fun, and sadly I can't make it. If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, be sure and put it on your calendar. Perhaps we can impose on these folks to do it again. Maybe at Bouchercon or Left Coast Crime or at A Literary Salon at my home.

Saturday, Feb. 27th, 2:00PM: "The Maltese Omelette" Radio Show and Mass Signing!
An old-time radio drama, written by Michael Kurland especially for today's audiences, "The Maltese Omelette" is an homage to Dashiell Hammett and Mother Goose, and falls into that popular genre known as "fairy tale noir."

The cast will include writers PETER BEAGLE, CARA BLACK, MICHAEL KURLAND, DICK LUPOFF, MARTA RANDALL, and LINDA ROBERTSON. (All but Peter and Cara have stories in Kurland's Sherlock Holmes: The American Years.)

Authors will sign their books at this event. M is for Mystery,
86 E. Third Ave, San Mateo, CA 94401

This is one of the most clever radio scripts I've come across and / or seen performed. Cara Black as the Foley Artist was spectacular clomping shoes and slamming doors. Who would believe that a bunch of talented writers could do a great job as actors. A fall back job just in case publishers start to act like publishers.
