I am a big mystery fan.  I have started to read more fantasy and science fiction in an effort to expand my reading pleasure.  I was wondering if there is a book or books that exist that combines both mystery and science fiction or fantasy in them???

Michelle Sagara's books also do this, but should be read in order.

Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next (The Eyre Affair is first) and Nursery Crimes(The Big Over Easy) books might qualify though they are a bit more zany than fantasy. Fun books, regardless!
