The Seven Words You Can't Say in Crime Fiction

I'm over at The Crime Factory talking about cussin' in crime fiction. I believe cursing has its place. It will not elevate a mediocre story, nor will it drag a great story into the manure pile.
Here's what I have to say. Also includes my pitch for Lawrence Block's next Bernie Rhodenbarr novel.

I'm also over at Richard Godwin's Chin Wag at the Slaughterhouse shooting the shit.
Richard writes excellent dark fiction, and his novel Apostle Rising is no exception.
