Poisoned Pen/British Library Bringing Back Many Golden Age Titles @PPPress @britishlibrary

If you like Golden Age mysteries and detective fiction, or works published in English prior to that period, check out the reprints published in the series British Library Crime Classics from Poisoned Pen Press and the British Library. This wonderful collection brings back famous works (think about those by Freeman Wills Crofts) and lesser known works that were still popular in their day and that are unjustly forgotten. There are pathbreakers (Andrew Forrester's The Female Detective from 1864) and collections of short stories (Continental Crimes, edited by Martin Edwards, who contributes both editing and introductions to a number of books in the series), as well as resurrections of the works of authors such as Lois Austen-Leigh, a collateral relative of Jane Austen.

Martin Edwards, who is well known for his own mystery novels, is also the author of The Story of Classic Crime in 100 Books, from Poisoned Pen.

The Story of Classic Crime in 100 Books

Reasonable prices. Many of the titles are available in ebook format.
