The last week of October was a busy one.
On Wednesday, the last 2016 AUTILLUS gathering of the Bernese members took place. With seven participants, we managed a new record and had to move from a normal to a round table. Impending launches, websites and the crime writing days in the town of Burgdorf made for interesting topics.

Burgdorf was the place I headed to on Sunday. Mitra Devi, Alice Gabathuler and Tom Zai were reading there from "Mord in Switzerland Band 2" (Murder in Switzerland Volume 2). Also a must was Petra Ivanov's reading from her newest novel "Täuschung" (Deception).
There was still enough time in between readings to meet friends, make interesting new acquaintances, and to banter.
My first visit to the crime writing days in Burgdorf certainly wasn't the last.
