>Hello All,

>         General Criticism of Crime, Mystery and Detection on Film,

>         General Criticism of Crime Mystery and Detection on Television
         Canadian Crime Fiction, Primary (novels and short stories by
Canadian Authors)
         Canadian Crime Fiction, Secondary (critical articles on Canadian
Crime Fiction)
         Literary Detective Fiction
>         Dissertations on the Genre (fiction, film, television)
>         The Skene-Melvin Collection

Please do have a look at the website.  It is an ambitious project and it is
our intention that this "webliography" continue to grow and develop.  While
our particular interest is in Canadian Detective Fiction, we have a very
large number of citations on Crime, Mystery and Detective fiction, film and
television which do not concern Canada on the site.

Thanks in advance for any help that your members might give.  Anyone who
spots an error or omission can contact Marilyn or myself at:
