English Country House Murders, edited by Thomas Godfrey
This was a fantastic collection of short stories spanning the decades of the great English Country House Mystery genre, with contributions from just about all of the greats. So well edited, the choices from the obvious authors were unusual ones, and real treats, but for me ther great finds were the authors I was unfamiliar with. Country House Mysteries are one of my greatest escapist treats, so this whole book was for me like having a wonderful box of chocolates.
This is a log of what books I've been reading and movies I've been watching. Comments are welcome!
One explanation seems necessary - the phrase "Life-Changing Fiction" is not in any way an endorsement of those books- in fact, I think those books are Awful, and want that to be clear. "Life-Changing Fiction", as a phrase, has been trademarked, absurdly, by the "Christian fiction" writer Karen Kingsbury, and that is Just Not Right. Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
