crime fiction - vintage crime

vintage_crime is a new Live Journal community. We discuss all crime fiction written up to approximately the end of the 1950s. This includes Edgar Allan Poe’s detective stories, the Sherlock Holmes stories, and others from that era, in addition to the novels of the so-called golden age of the English detective novel – writers such as Dorothy L. Sayers, Margery Allingham and Agatha Christie. We will also be discussing the American hardboiled school (Chandler, Hammett, Cain, Thompson, etc), and other British writers like Graham Greene, Eric Ambler and John Buchan.
