Bill Crider is a wonderful writer and an all-around nice guy. This is the first paragraph of his Blog Bytes column in the latest Ellery Queen's: "Since this is the January/February issue of EQMM, it's time to think of calendars and to remind you of Rob Lopresti's Today in Mystery History. It was updated only intermittently toward the end of 2016, but perhaps it will return to its regular daily schedule in 2017. You'll find authors' birthdays, dates of first publication of famous crime stories and novels, dates well-known crime movies opened, and more. That's the kind of trivia that's hard to resist."
