New Blog

I've decided to start my own blog, after the sad demise of The Little Blog of Murder. I worked with that blog for nearly a decade, before we all decided to call it quits.

This blog derives its name from The Corpse Steps Out by Craig Rice, the subject of my first biography (and my favorite of her books.)

This blog is going to be a bit more focused on Golden Age Detective Fiction. Some of it will be excerpts of what I'm writing; others will be reviews of books that I've read lately.


  1. Nice to see you here. Looking forward to seeing what you have to say =).


  2. Looking forward to your posts. I love Golden Age mysteries, but then you know I usually have at least one foot in the past.

  3. Thanks PJ.. I started getting back into the GA stuff when I had my neck surgery. Days upon days of not being able to move allowed me a lot of time to read!

    Bev, nice to see you here!

  4. Delighted to see the new blog, Jeffrey - I've added a link from my blogroll. Welcome!

  5. I so look forward to your writings. I love that period of mystery writing.

  6. Hi

    Your blog seems very fascinating since I am a lover of vintage mysteries bu could you tell me how to follow it since I cannot see the follow/ GFC button. Has Blogger done away with those buttons?
