Quebec City's 2012 Crime and Mystery Literary Festival

It has taken me a few days, but I've finally found the time to put a little pictorial together on the Quebec Crime Festival that took place October 25th - 27th, 2012.
This doesn't come close to capturing the atmosphere of the event and all the wonderful people I met. 

A little prop plane from Montreal to Quebec. Coincidentally  I sat beside a Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff who was on leave and visiting a friend. Needless to say, I gave him a copy of my book.

Left to right 1st row - Archer Mayer, Linwood Barclay, Michael Robotham, John Connolly, Brian Freeman, Peggy Blair, Giles Blunt and Mons Kallentoft. Left to right 2nd row - Chris Holm, Owen Laukkanen, Mark Billingham, Laura Lippman, David Swinson and Wayne Arthurson. Not pictured here - Robert Pobi.
Organizers Jacques Filippi and Guy Dubois introducing the first panel.                                                
Touring Old Quebec (Wayne Arthurson, Mons Kallentoft, David Swinson)
Later with Rob Pobi, who actually was a fan of Roadside Prophets, the 1991 film I co-produced. Go figure.


  1. SO much fun! Thanks for putting these up, David!

  2. Yes, a great time. I have a few more, Peggy. Will get them up soon.

  3. Hope you are ok, David! In Stockholm it is a cold but nice family friday. Thanks for Quebeck, and sure hope to see you soon, Mons

  4. Great to hear from you, Mons. It was a great time, especially that french restaurant you found. I have a picture of the wine label and will try to find it here. Stay warm with your family.
