The P.I. Calendar

Okay, okay, I know. This page is occasionally out-of-date, but we’re doing much much better than we used to. If you’ve got a relevant event — a convention, a fan event, a Noir-at-the-Bar, a mystery-writing course or something — coming up, tell me… Or at least put me on your mailing list, if you’re organized enough to have one. If your event is not listed here, it might not be my fault.

Sorry, authors, I’m not looking for individual book signings, though — that way would lead to madness.

NOTE: Due the ongoing concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 virus, many events may be cancelled or postponed. I’ll relay what I know, but before you head out, it’s best to check directly with the event’s organizers for any updates.
