We tend to avoid the big, banal blockbusters (and the more lurid fare) in favor of beautifully written explorations of the unknown, many of them obscure, all of them extraordinary.
[Note from the Moderator: A couple of years ago, we changed our group name from "Literary Horror" in order to expand our sphere of interests. Our enthusiasms embrace Gothic, Weird Fiction, and Noir, as well as much that might be classified as Horror, but we also appreciate literary fiction that cannot be easily fitted into a marketing niche. In fact, this latter group has evolved into our primary focus. Most serious fiction deals (to some extent) with darker themes, and many works of distinction have employed supernatural, surreal or existentialist elements. These books have power. They endure, because they appeal to serious readers and provide thoughtful entertainment. Come. Explore them with us.]...more

“It was a dark and stormy night. Lightning flashed and thunder rolled across the sky. Rain spattered a mysterious, hooded stranger who peered over the hedgerow at the darkened, quiet house.”
Do lines like these quicken your heartbeat and pique your interest? Then Welcome to the Mystery, Crime and Thriller Group! This is the place for you.
Join our intrepid moderators, “DCI” Donna, “Sherlock” Hayes, Nancy “Drew”, and “Cat Burglar” Bill as we read and discuss our favourites, recommend new authors and explore the Genre.
This is the meeting place for readers to discuss their favourites and recommend new authors, and the place for budding and established mystery, crime and thriller writers to introduce us to their efforts. You can travel into the past to discover great characters like Sherlock Holmes, Inspector Maigret and others; journey around the world to other countries and meet Aussie Phryne Fisher, Norwegian Harry Hole and so many others; just relax on your couch and experience the wonders of Hercule Poirot, Lord Peter Wimsey, etc; or hard-boiled, tired gumshoes like Travis McGee and Kinsey Milhone. Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the wonderfully varied world that is Mystery, Crime and Thrillers.
Join us and have a great time!
Your Moderators: Donna, Hayes, Bill and Nancy....more
