Crime fiction blogs worth investigating (part 6)
And today we hit part 6 in our series about crime fiction blogs you don’t want to miss. Save some time to visit them.
Yet Another Crime Fiction Blog
This is an intelligent and astute site from a blogger who, among other things, loves a bit of Scandi Noir. There are some great opinion pieces there too, and I love the Auto-Buy section, which lists authors who seldom put a foot wrong.
The Corpse Steps Out
A blog from Jeffrey Marks, an author and biographer of crimewriters of the 1940s and 1950s – when noir really was noir! He’s currently working on a biography of Erle Stanley Gardner (creator of Perry Mason). There are reviews of Gardner’s work. so it’s a must for fans.
Pretty Sinister Books
This blog is something a bit special and gives you the thrill of discover quite unlike any other. John from Chicago is a writer and bookseller and devotes his blog (and his online retail bookshop) out-of-print and vintage crime, supernatural, adventure and other genre fiction.
At the Villa Rose
This is billed as the random thoughts of Xavier Lechard. It may be random in its broad subject matter, but his posts (in English and in French) are insightful and beautifully expressed. He’s like an excellent dinner guest in blog form.
Bitter Tea and Mystery
Good honest reviews. Good honest tea. Can’t say fairer than that.
Wonder if you’ve seen or heard of American author James Orlando (Amazon kindle store) quite a few interesting crime fiction novels most with settings inc Brighton & Hove tho’ most are Hong Kong, Hawaii and other exotic locations.
My favourite’s THE JADE NOMAD (worldwide settings), followed by JADE TRIANGLE (mostly Hong Kong), others are LUNALILO FREEWAY (about a Brighton photographer in Hawaii) plus one in Australia and a really good, but v. short story THE 38th PARALLEL. Worth a look I promise you.
