BTAP #45: The Year of the Dragon by Stephen D. Rogers

Last time I was home, digging through some boxes, I came across an old issue of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine with the following poem:
"On My Mark"
By Stephen D. Rogers

If there’s any downside to a con
It’s the marks over which I must fawn
It’s the bores with whom I must deal
It’s the honest who jump at a steal
It’s the fools who think that they know
Like this Belgian I’ve picked named Poirot
(Sept/Oct 1999)
Stephen D. continues to entertain with the thrilling tale "The Year of the Dragon" at BEAT to a PULP.
