The ABCs of Crime

Last year my colleague Linda Johns decided that she was going to try to read through the alphabet in the mystery section to gain even more familiarity with the world of mystery. David Wright is doing the same this year and writing blog posts for Shelf Talk about his “Alphabet of Crime” reading adventures.

Here are some of the posts that David has written about his A-Z affair with the mystery stacks:

Margarey Allingham

Killer B’s

E. C. Bentley

G. K. Chesterton

Sherlock Holmes  (Doyle)

Loren Estleman and James Ellroy

Four Felonious Frasers

William Faulkner

Stay tuned for the rest of this fun series!

    I’d been warned that Linda said she’d hit some kind of wall when she got to G. Well maybe it is superstition, but I’ve had a lot of trouble getting past “F.” I think Linda is keeping me from proceeding further using psychic energy, but I can’t prove anything, of course. BUT: Library of America just published a Gorgeous Single Volume of David (‘G’-as-in) Goodis’ novels that I’m going to ask us to get, and I think that may just break out of the psychic quicklime I’m caught in.
