Catching up

After much strenuous effort I am just about caught up on all the backlog that accumulated over the last two months while I was post-traumatically stressed. I now have less than thirty cases to my “to add” folder, down from over sixty. And about the same amount of cases in my “to update” folder. Yay!

Not that this is any time to relax, though. I know if I turn my back for five minutes I’ll wind up with 350983409 cases waiting to post again.

In other news, I am writing a play. It’s an adaptation of a book, meaning I don’t have to think up (most) of the stuff on my own, but it’s still a demanding project, more difficult than I had anticipated. I don’t have much hope of seeing it performed anywhere, but it’s a good exercise anyway.

    Hi Meaghan, I’m a long time fan from way back on your old site, but a long time lurker in terms of comments here…love Charley, you do a great job! I was waiting for a good place to comment so I wouldn’t have to place a random change of subject card, but I was wondering if you have ever read Lost….and Never Found by Anita Gustafson and Lost….and Never Found II by Anita Larson (I assume she got married). These are old school paperbacks, 1985 and 1991, but a great read and not too expensive on Alibris. Reason I asked is one of the cases that always stuck with me ( I got the first when I was ten) was Alice Van Alstine and I was surprised at the lack of detail that is available currently on her. To sum up, in the book (can I get sued for this?) the implication is her possible involvement with the Minutemen may have contributed to her disappearance. It’s about eleven pages on her, and very interesting. The first book covers Orion Williamson, Ambrose Bierce, Dorothy Arnold, Amelia Earhart, Thomas Riha, Alice, Michael Rockefeller, Dr. Charles Brancati, Judge Crater, and Johnny Gosch. Book Two is Didirici, Helen Brcah, The Pirates of Coco Island, Vanished in the Bermuda Triangle, Dr. Bernard M. Bueche, Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, Jimmy Hoffa, Richard Colvin Cox, and a chapter called Solved?. I hope this is of interest to you!

      I have never heard of this book but it sounds fascinating. I will have to obtain a copy. Thanks for telling me about it.

    I just have to say how on top of things you are Meaghan! I live not far from where Brian Carrick (2002) disappeared, and there was an update in his case in the local newspapers just a few days ago. I was wondering if you knew about it yet, and sure enough I checked here and you already updated! Keep up the good work!
