Rediscovering Crime Fiction of the Golden Age

Nice blog here, called the Passing Tramp, devoted to mystery and crime fiction, particularly of the Golden Age, with many illustrations. The author is Curtis Evans, who has written numerous books on crime fiction and detective stories, including Masters of the "Humdrum" Mystery (2012) and the forthcoming Mysteries Unlocked: Essays in Honor of Douglas G. Greene (2014).  If you like Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, and John Dickson Carr, let Mr. Evans introduce you (or re-introduce you) to their colleagues.

Here's an interview with Mr. Evans, posted at the Past Offences Blog (itself also a worthwhile "virtual" destination).
