-----One website we all should check out every now and then is
www.therapsheet.blogspot.com which covers many different areas including news
and current events having to do with crime fiction. Also www.mysteryfile.com

Subject: RARA-AVIS: Crime clearinghouse website query
I was talking to Joe Loya today, a former bank robber (and son of a philosophy
professor) who did eight years in prison then wrote a kickass memoir, The Man
Who Outgrew his Prison Cell (highly recommended), and he asked me if I knew of
any website(s) out there that served as a kind of clearinghouse or central
outpost, what have you, for all things crime -- non-fiction, fiction, current
events crime-wise, historical crime (La Cosa Nostra, Westies, Dillinger, Pretty
Boy Floyd) etc.
My answer, briefly, was: No. Don't think so.
I told him the smartest web sites/groups I knew about crime were this one, and
the blogs of Declan Burke, Adrian McKinty and Sarah Weinman, but there was
nothing like what he described.
But then, I'm an ignorant putz on such matters, so I thought I would put this
question out to the group, since the collective mind, especially in this
instance, is far wiser than the singular.
Any good comprehensive websites out there on all things crime?
