In the evening Mr Monkey went to Crime in Store, where he met his friend Miss Mitchy. They went upstairs to see Mr Mark Billingham launch Lazybones, his new crime book. Apparently, launching a book isn't at all like launching a ship, though a lot of bottles did get emptied. And when that was over, Mr Monkey went home.
You can find out all about Mr Billingham and his rather excellent books at Mark Billingham's website.
RAM is, of course, rec.arts.mystery, Mr Monkey's favourite newsgroup.
