Well, I guess this is a bit off topic, but gosh is it interesting to put people to the messages we read. I just miss out, 1959 vintage and as I said in my last post I spent my horrible teenage years reading Mr Moorcock(blush, though I never listened to Hawkwind)As a child I read Mythology, mainly Greek and Bradbury and Asimov. I guess my intoduction to Crime Fiction came with my going out with my now husband, who was a Bogart/Film Noir fan. Many happy hours in Sheffield Library Theatre later and of course I was reading the books.Dabbled in a few others, Rendell, Allingham,PD James. University saw little or no fiction(boring Pol /Soc) apart from lots of comics,graphic novels and chewing gum for the brain, then kapow, John came home with his usual pile of paperbacks(serious vinyl and print junkie) and there was either Vachss or Ellroy and I've never looked back. (I still do read "proper" books, but as I said in my very first posting I keep waiting for the murder to happen) Nice to meet you all Jane PS Sorry if I go on a bit, sometimes you guys are the only adult company I have all day.(sob)
