Classic and Golden Age Mysteries
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Read/Post Comments (7)

We've just added thirty-two titles to The Maywrite Library, Mary's ever-expanding collection of online e-texts of classic and Golden Age mystery novels and short stories.

Mary is an aficionada of old mysteries by the likes of R. Austin Freeman, Anna Katherine Greene. E. Phillips Oppenheim, Arthur B. Reeve, Edgar Wallace and many, many more. Agatha Christie was a Johnny-come-lately to the whodunnit!

From the relatively few I've read, early mysteries tend to concentrate more on solving a puzzle to find the murderer and don't carry around as much of the literary and psychological baggage that often as not simply weighs down modern mysteries.

Mary has been posting some short reviews of Golden Age mysteries, for example, Night by Octavus Roy Cohen.

We also have a page devoted to online texts another of Mary's interest, stories of the supernatural.
