It's been about a week since I mentioned some momentous news that left me stunned. Y'all have been very patient, and you'll get your answer in a post to follow this one.
In the mean time, let's see what links tickled my fancy this week:
- If you're a fan of the Stephanie Plum mysteries by Janet Evanovich, have you heard that they've cast Stephanie in a proposed movie? (I can't say as I'm exactly clicking my heels together over the choice of actress.)

- Did you know that the British Library is offering free e-book downloads of 19th century classics this spring?
- Did you know that there are several ways to lose your fingerprints? (Yes, crime fiction fans know this is, indeed, book-related!)
- The Times Online has published a list of the best crime novels of the decade. Personally, I prefer some of the runners up.
- According to Psychology Today, there is genius in detective fiction.
- If you've been enjoying the excellent crime fiction coming out of Sweden, there's more to come.
- Have you heard? Neil Gaiman is going to write a Dr. Who episode!
- Here is a list of the Top Ten Valentine's books for your kids.
