I saw this website mentioned in an old thread by Kim on here. It looks great and may be beneficial to those who are looking for a historical mystery book for the 2010 Mystery Challenge. Those who love historical mystery books will be interested as well. It also has all the HM books listed that are going to be released in 2010. Take a look. Sorry if this has already been mentioned and I just missed it.

So I spent less than two minutes on that site and found an author I didn't know about that I HAD to wishlist.  I was afraid to stay on it any longer...

I checked out the site and while I do agree that it is a terrific resource, I have to say that the definition of "historical" is pretty loose over there.  I saw books that were set in eras as recent as the 1970s.    Heck, I remember the 70s and I'M NOT THAT OLD, DAGNABIT!!!;):P

I agree LeeAnn.  The 1970's should be called  'throw back'  or 'retro'  mysteries,  not historical.  They can't be historical if it happened during my lifetime.  Just my definition.
