  1. It’s cool to see someone I’ve met (S. A. Cosby) on that list. 🙂

    Those critical/nonfiction books have some intriguing titles…

    “Finders: Justice, Faith, and Identity in Irish Crime Fiction.” Ooh.

    “Agatha Christie, She Watched: One Woman’s Plot to Watch 201 Christie Adaptations Without Murdering the Director, Screenwriter, Cast, or Her Husband.” I want.

    And both the Poe books…
