For me, RBP was one of the best crime authors ever, classic detective stories all located in the Bosten - Mass - Maine are.
Don´t wanna say something bad about SK, his crime stories are nice,
but when you like Dashiel Hammett, R.Chandler give RBP a chance.:rock:

I know Björn Ian Craig for more than 10 years from the German Horror Forum. We often talk about our collections, which books we are looking for and which we have just bought. For some reason, I've always forgot to ask him for a remarque, he's a great artist.

Then I'll show Poe next. The great thing about the
DIE UNHEIMLICHEN series are the completely different drawing styles of the artists. Lukas Jüliger puts Poes classic horror story in an incredible, mostly green otaku / anime world.

No red lights bought, nothing bad done....:onfire:
But I remember when I left the event a large group of drunk UK football fans stood in front of the fruit shop, along with some hookers.
(Football fans from the UK often come to Hamburg to see FC St. Pauli)

Yes, the short story is about a largely unknown reindeer of Santa Claus, Rudwolf
half reindeer - half wolf ....malicious, alcoholic, violent.
The reader also learns that the Santa Claus clothes were originally completely white.
Until the first Christmas Daym Santa Claus had the stupid idea to put Rudwolf in front of the sled. Result .... a bloody almost dead Santa Claus.
That's why his clothes are white + bled-red since then.:panic:

Something from the good old days when it was possible to visit bookreading events....
Whenever Cornelia Funke is in her old hometown Hamburg, i of course visit her readings and
try to complete my collection.

Her bookreadingevents are of course always sold out, and after the reading the entire audience queues up to get max 3 books signed, this does not happen with all readings that I visit.
