Minutes of the AIEP/IACW 2014 annual meeting Bucharest / Rasnov (Romania) August 19-20-21

In conjunction with the November 2014 cover feature of World Literature Today - which will focus on central European literature since the fall of the Berlin Wall - the editors of WLT invited 25 writers to nominate one book that most influenced their own writing or ways of seeing the world - from anywhere in the world - and to add a brief statement explaining their choice. Now, it’s your turn to help choose the best of the best. Read through the longlist, then during the readers’ poll.

In June 2010, at the initiative of a group of writers and editors, was created RCWC - Romanian Crime Writers Club, the first association in Romania that wants to join those with a significant contribution to the development of detective literature in our country.

The creation of this association is a natural consequence of the increasing number of Romanian authors, from different generations, cultivating this kind of writing, and the increased interest shown by readers to their works.

AIEP enjoys one of its best conferences ever, meeting at St. Hilda's College in Oxford.

Suspense Magazine wants to hear from international crime writers.

All Norway has been in our hearts and thoughts as we've watched the events of Friday's terrorist attacks unfold, destroying the peace the country embodies, expressed so eloquently in their Nobel Peace selections, as well as the Oslo Accords.

Six translated novels by a variety of authors have been announced as being the best of 2011, in the competition for the Dagger awarded by the Crime Writers' Association.

It hasn't been my habit to use this forum for publication announcements, but I've got a new book coming out May 12 and I find I want to tell y'all about it. The title is A DROP OF THE HARD STUFF, the publisher is Mulholland Books, Little Brown's brand new imprint, and it's my seventeenth book about Matthew Scudder.
