This isn't really what you're looking for and you probably already know about them, but Ace Atkins has written two novels involving the blues. But they're set in contemporary times about a white "blues tracker." However, the stories he tracks are vintage tales of blues musicians. For instance, the first book, Crossroad Blues, revolves around the death of Robert Johnson. The second involves the Stagger Lee myth having followed blues musicians from the Delta to Chicago.
