Felony & Mayhem
Sorry for the lapse in posts over the last few weeks. The holidays got in the way; a pleasant time, but busy. Anyway, during the holiday season, I found two websites for those who like to read mysteries, one of which I’ll discuss here.
Felony and Mayhem Abound
The folks at felonyandmayhem.com bring out-of-print mysteries back to life by reprinting them. For lovers of Patricia Moyes, Ngaio Marsh and S. S. Van Dine’s Philo Vance series, this site is a must-see. Additionally, “The Felonious Backlist” boggles the mind with the likes of Robert Barnard, Simon Brett, Elizabeth Daly, Reginald Hill and dozens of others.
According to the website, they “also publish an increasing number of first paperback editions of books previously published in hardcover, and (particularly) first U.S. editions of books that initially came out overseas.” In recent years, they also “brought out [their] first original: Annamaria Alfieri’s The Idol of Mombasa, a historical mystery set in 1910s British East Africa, which will be followed by another title in that series in January 2018.”
Mystery readers and writers: Check this website out. You won’t be sorry.
As the mystery lovers at Felony & Mayhem say, “Life is too short to read bad books.” I couldn’t agree more.
Next time, I’ll talk about my other find: CrimeReads.
Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks
Since I have my own domain, I use http://www.wordpress.org. The theme is one of theirs with some minor alterations.
Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks?
If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
Yes, I get quite a few spam remarks and even ads and things through my contact form. I use the Akismet Anti-spam plug-in, which catches a lot, but I still get some spam. I haven’t looked into anything else, yet.
I like this website very much. Its a real nice spot to read and receive info.
Many thanks for making the effort to discuss this, I feel strongly about this and like learning a great deal more on this topic. If feasible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your webpage with a great deal more details? It’s really beneficial for me.
Wow, this was cool. Keep writing this kind of blog, you will get a lot of people to this blog if you continue working on this. I will be visiting this domain more often. thx

Wow, this was great. Keep writing this kind of texts, you will get a lot of people to this post if you continue doing this. I will be coming back this website more often. thanks again
Yes, in addition to reviewing books, I plan on continuing to highlight various mystery and other book-related websites and blogs that I come across.
