Fancy Book Learning Stuff & Talking About Dicks

Today was the fourth and final post in the "Mysteries and More" blog run by Bill Selnes.  It's been fun reading Bill's two reviews, plus doing the Q & A with him, and then the follow-up discussion. 

I miss being a nerdy academic!  I had a lot of fun doing my MA.  I did a lot of work on detective fiction in general, and women in crime fiction in particular.  I'm not really into the "cozy" types of mysteries - hardboiled was more my thing.  So... I did a great deal of reserach on the hardboiled gumshoe when I was working on my Master's, and I loved every minute of it.  (By the way, I did my MA online via Athabasca University - awesome experience!!!!) 

In Bill's fourth and final post, he comments on some of my MA research and analysis of (women in) crime fiction.  Here is a link to excerpts from the Essays I did on mysteries and Bill's thoughts on the essays vis a vis the Sasha Jackson series. 

I thoroughly enjoyed reading his comments and will post my own responses in a day or two.

Cheers, Jill
