Hooked on murder mysteries, detectives, thrillers and spies – especially Victorian to Vintage?
Welcome to our Gaslight Crime blog.
The name came about to reflect (see what we did there) John’s Victorian crime novels – originally, we were only going to blog about novels set in the gaslight era.
Like all ideas, it grew and we decided we couldn’t leave out the Golden Age fiction we love so much, non-fiction about the genre or the wonderful detective novelists of the post-war decades.
Then we come to newly-written historical crime – more popular every year among authors and readers who want to enjoy old-fashioned mysteries, solved without modern technology and forensics. (No disrespect here – we love modern police procedurals too).
We also love fictional crime drama on television and film. So we blog about what we’ve been reading and watching, together with random writing research.
We do try to review without spoilers as we’d hate to spoil anyone’s reading pleasure.
And as painful reviews hurt hard-working authors, we stick to mentioning work we enjoyed.
Thanks for reading our blog
John and Anne
