I've decided to end the "interesting stuff" thread I started and turn it into a folder for more visibility. I spend my morning coffee-drinking time normally perusing the internet for things that I think might be of interest to this group and that I want to share. Feel free to drop into any discussion -- the more the merrier, I always say!

If you find articles that you think might be something the group would be interested in, feel free to start a new topic thread. If you're unsure if it's appropriate, just let me know.

Just FYI: You may NOT include self-promotion of your books here.

Skye | 2105 comments I like this, and I have many topics and links to share!

Feliks (dzerzhinsky) I endorse this idea. (Who would endorse me, I'm sure I don't know)

I will go first I guess.

A site which samples old comic books and shows how stupid they could actually get:

This is my favorite so far:

I hope this link works: I adore Camus, and Mersault is one of my favorite characters/anti-hero: in short, he is my anti thesis, and I wonder why so many dislike him. Perhaps something is lost in the translation.

My friends, let's keep all posts in the parameters of mystery, crime and thrillers, okay? Otherwise, this could all get very out of hand. Thanks!

Over the weekend I discovered a fantastic new (to me) blog, dedicated to lesser known British women writers from the period 1910-1960.

Amongst the huge wealth of information, he has a separate list dedicated to female mystery writers. Some great stuff (and wonderful period covers) there.

OMG! That is so cool! Will you please start a separate thread with this link in this folder? There are a number of people (like myself) who are interested in older mystery novels -- and I'm just getting into uncovering unknown women mystery novelists. Thanks so much!

I felt that comic books have a close enough relationship to mystery fiction to warrant the link.

But okay I will mind this rule more strictly.

not your fault - I should have been specific. That one's on me.

Thank you! I'm just blown away.

Feliks (dzerzhinsky) front page news in my city this morning:

'Son Chomps Mom's Head Off'

Sigh.


message 18: by Skye (new)

Skye | 2105 comments ugh; we are hearing these real life stories far too much lately; it is unbelievable.


message 19: by Scott (new)

Scott Parsons | 34 comments I recently read this article about serial killers in which a criminologist contrasts the stories surrounding serial homicide with real data to help explain society’s macabre fascination with these tales.

Good article!

Feliks (dzerzhinsky) Yep, I heard once that the death rate of characters in American television series is like 900% more than in real life.

That's a very fine article. I've often tried to tell girls these basic numbers, but boy a lot of females in New York sure insist on living as if an axe murderer is around every corner. You can't shake them out of it.
