The Links in the
(with apologies to
- A Guide to Classic Mystery and Detection--excellent and thought-provoking essays devoted to the
Intuitionist writers (particularly John Dickson Carr, Agatha Christie
and Ellery Queen) and the Realist writers (R. Austin Freeman and
Freeman Wills Crofts); an ideal introduction to the genre.
- A Bibliography
Cool Bibliography Page--a particularly useful
resource: bibliographies for many of the genre's leading writers.
Crime Fiction - a really good site with hundreds of rare
dust-jackets, updated every fortnight or so
Age of Detection Discussion Group--frenzied
debates, furious disagreement, and heated argument are all to be found
on the web's most active group.
- The Mysterious Home Page
- Mysterylist--a site at once humorous and bursting with excellent
criticism, Grobius Shortling's wonderful site offers in-depth reviews
of the work of John Dickson Carr, Edmund Crispin, Colin Dexter, Ian Fleming, Michael Gilbert, Cyril Hare and S.S. Van Dine. His non-detective
fiction pages are very funny and thought-provoking.

Bookshops & Publishers
& Landru--a small firm that steadily
produces first-class short story collections, including Christianna
Brand, Anthony Berkeley, C. Daly King, Margery Allingham, John Dickson
Carr, etc.; the detective fiction addict's dream come true
- House of
Stratus--if Crippen & Landru is the best
company for new books, House of Stratus is the best company for old
books, having reprinted Anthony Berkeley, Freeman Wills Crofts, R.
Austin Freeman, Cyril Hare, Michael Gilbert and Michael Innes. Isn't it
wonderful not to have to spend $6,000. for an R. Austin Freeman?
