Mystery lovers, have you heard of www.stopyourekillingme.com?  This is a WONDERFUL site that lists alphabetically every mystery author it can possibly find and information (including bibliographies) about their work.  Each listing has an immediate link to the author's website, if one exists.  In addition, they list the main characters alphabetically, so if you recall that Jane Smith was the heroine of such-and-such a series, but cannot recall the author or titles, you can still find the book! 

They offer a newsletter twice a month, and have pages for new publications, both in hardcover and paperback.  This is a great source for info about books before you look for them on PBS.  Stopyourekillingme does not sell books, so they are not in competition with our wonderful PBS! 

Check them out!
