Vintage Crime community

vintage_crime is a new Live Journal community, for discussion of all crime fiction written up to around the 1950s. So it will include the Sherlock Holmes stories, but also other mysteries from the same 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, etc), and other British writers like Graham Greene, Eric Ambler and John Buchan.
