While quarantine isn’t over, doing the dual role of schoolmarm is! The kids are out for summer and I look forward to (limited) summer outings where I can flop down in a beach chair and read a book.

Let’s get to it. Here’s the most crime fiction news per word on the web.

Two quotes from Shirley Jackson’s work:

  • “Although the villagers had forgotten the ritual and lost the original black box, they still remembered to use stones.”
  • “Most people have never seen a ghost, and never want or expect to, but almost everyone will admit that sometimes they have a sneaking feeling that they just possibly could meet a ghost if they weren’t careful―if they were to turn a corner too suddenly, perhaps, or open their eyes too soon when they wake up at night, or go into a dark room without hesitating first.



  • How many books do you typically bring on your summer vacation?


Until next Thursday, happy reading,
