Crime Fiction Canada: Essays on Canadian Detective Fiction

We are in the early stages of planning an edited 
academic book on Canadian Detective Fiction.  We 
would like to receive one page proposals, with 
bibliography, on any of the following:

Canadian authors – including, but not limited to: 
Peter Robinson, Howard Engel, Eric Wright, Gail 
Bowen, William Bankier, Anthony Bidulka, Mary 
Jane Maffini, Rick Mofina, The Ladies Killing 
Circle, William Deverell --  the list is very 
lengthy and there is very little publication on 
most popular Canadian authors.  See our website, 
for an indication of work done to date on 
Canadian authors and the scholarly field of “Crime Fiction Canada.”

Suggested topics include:

Landscape and Canadian Detective fiction
A Canadian School of detective fiction?
Regional and local identities in Canadian detective fiction
Ethnicity in Canadian detective fiction
Canadian literary detective fiction
Canadian detective film and television
Hardboiled/softboiled detective fiction in Canada
The amateur sleuth in Canada
Canadian Police procedurals
Women sleuths in Canada
The “Northern”
Publishing popular detective fiction in Canada

We would be pleased to receive proposals on other 
aspects of Canadian detective fiction as well. 
Length of the essays will depend upon the number of proposals received.

Proposals should be submitted to Jeannette 
Sloniowski and Marilyn Rose by April 30, 2006 at:
