2013

Ainsi donc 2012 s'en va, et 2013 s'en vient. J'espère que cette année qui se termine vous a été dans l'ensemble propice, et vous laissera davantage de bons souvenirs que de mauvais. Puisse la nouvelle année être encore meilleure, et ce dans tous les domaines.

So 2012 is coming to its end, and 2013 is on the way up. I hope the past year was mostly a good one for you, with good memories outweighing the bad ones. May the new year be even better in every respect.

I am very saddened to hear about the passing of Maxine Clarke, who blogged at Petrona. She was an articulate, passionate defender and promoter of the mystery genre and by all accounts, a beautiful person as well. All my sympathy is with her family and her friends.
