Sayers Fans Alert – Tony Medawar (ed.): Bodies from the Library 2

This collection concludes with a previously and otherwise unpublished, privately owned Lord Peter Wimsey story!!  And it’s a good one, too.  (Pre-Harriet, but with, inter alia, a spirited exchange between Peter and another young lady on the prevailing clichés about women.)

Woohoo!

On a largely unrelated note, I’m going to use this book for Genre: Suspense, not Darkest London (as I had originally planned) as my 15th extra square.  Turns out that the settings are all over the place, from various parts of England to North America, with only a small part of the stories set in London — too much of a stretch for a square named for that city specifically.  Plenty of other books more noticeably set in London to fill the Darkest London square (which I’m still planning to do as well, though).

(Gosh … […]

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
