Hello everyone, I’m Velleic, an avid reader of crime fiction, particularly of the Classic, clue-based sort. Over the past few years I’ve built up a backlog of thoughts and even full reviews of some of the books I’ve read, and I’ve decided it’s high time to post them. I’m starting with one book from the pre-Golden Age of Mystery and one book from a decade and a half ago, but expect things from the 1930s/1940s soon.

Posting schedule-wise, I’m going to try and post once every week, on a Sunday.

I have a particular interest in short stories, and I expect many of my reviews to be short-story focused. Also, I like reading about crime fiction just as much as actually reading it, so at some point I’ll be reviewing review collections, non-fiction books about crime fiction, and so on.

I also enjoy playing video games, and where this interest links up with crime fiction, however tenuously, I’ll write about that too.

Finally, I’m an aspiring fiction writer. If I get one of my short stories published, I certainly won’t shut up about it will post about it here.
