Bodies From The Library 2021 Suggested Reading


10749969_352349844946450_8041624292216348428_oThis post was intended as a private note, that would serve me as a guide for my forthcoming reading plans. But I thought it might be of some interest to make it public. Regretfully, it will be late for the coming Conference, but better late than never as the Spanish saying goes. Stay tuned.

Bodies From The Library returns with a new Conference this year. The Conference will celebrate the Golden Age of Detective Fiction and will be of interest to fans of Agatha Christie and her contemporaries – Ngaio Marsh, Dorothy L Sayers, John Dickson Carr, Margery Allingham, the Detection Club -and also to those wanting to discover forgotten authors from the period.
