Linwood Barclay has had a busy start to the day!
He spoke with Kirk LaPointe early this morning at Roundhouse Radio about crime writing, editors, news, crime festivals and polite Canadian killers.
Blues is a very close friend of the organizers of CUFFED and has offered this print as a 1 of a kind fund-raising tribute to CUFFED.

Blues Chapman was born on the back of a postage stamp while half the world was trying to kill each other. It was before computers invaded our lives and turned our kids into idiots. His father taught him to catch a baseball and toxic fish from the Detroit River….and died too young. He taught himself to draw. Some people like his art and some don’t. He doesn’t care. He loves his pals, lives with his best friend….writes poetry, paints and has a blog that keeps his temper under control.
On the weekend of March 11 to 13 criminal minds from all corners of the country will descend upon Granville Island. Some of them specialize in constructing alibis for murders, while others take great pains in weaving intricate forms of blackmail, revenge or the silencing of secrets forever. No two think alike, but they all share at least one thing in common: they would love to meet you.
Later this month CUFFED: The International Crime Writers Festival will welcome 20 of today’s hottest crime fiction talent to Performance Works and the Granville Island Hotel. For three days some of the genre’s best-known Canadian talent will tell audiences how they craft relatable villains, ambiguous anti-heroes and tell richly dark stories of human failings that seem all-too-believable – and indeed, might also draw upon disquieting facts.
