RARA-AVIS: Mystery*File and Stephen Greenstreet

From: Steve Lewis ( stevelewis62@cox.net)
Date: 30 Sep 2005

The bad news is that the print version of Mystery*File is no more. Too many personal obligations to contend with, none serious, but the cumulative effect simply became too much.

If you are a subscriber and/or a contributor whom I have not yet had time to contact, please forgive me for doing so in such an indirect manner. I do intend to reach everyone in either category individually as soon as I can.

The good news is that I have found a way to put M*F online easily and without much stress.

I'm still working on things, but go take a look at www.mysteryfile.com and see where I am so far. I've not made much progress in getting other websites listed, but over the past couple of days, a number of articles, reviews and other commentary are up and running and ready to read.

Of special interest to rara-avian, I think, is a long overview by Ed Lynskey of mystery writer Stephen Greenleaf's career, including an in-depth look at all of his PI John Marshall Tanner novels.

Along with the article is a bibliography, but even better, the piece also contains an interview Ed had with Mr. Greenleaf last April. A link from the main page will get you to all of this, but you can also reach it directly by going to www.mysteryfile.com/greenleaf.html.

I'm new at this, so if the links don't happen to be working, let me know right away.

Once you've read the interview, other questions may occur to you, ones that Ed didn't happen to ask. Mr. Greenleaf has graciously agreed to answer further questions, and if you send them along to me via email (address above), even if all you want to do is say hello, I'll accumulate them and send them along for his replies. Once done, I'll make sure that rara-avis will be the first to see what both you and he had to say.
