Of interest to historical mystery enthusiasts

Seen on CrimeThruTime and DOROTHY-L yesterday, for any historical mystery writers or readers who wish to contribute...


The Mystery Readers Journal is devoting two of its themed issues (Volume 23:4 and Volume 24:1) to History Mysteries.

If you have a mystery set in an historical period, consider writing an Author! Author! essay for the second issue. Deadline is February 15. 500-2500 words, first person, upclose and personal about yourself, your mysteries and the historical connection. Think of it as chatting with friends, readers and other writers. Be sure and add a 2-3 sentence bio/tagline. Query letter always appreciated.

We're also looking for articles and reviews. Articles 750-2500 words; reviews up to 500 words.

    Hello. I found your blog searching for "historical mysteries" on Google. I was wondering if you, as a librarian and a HM enthusiast, could point me in the direction of articles specifically about HMs.

    That sounded lazy. I assure you I have tabs open to various databases over here (at UQ in Australia).
