As I observed in a recent post, I have been writing this blog for five years now. I have also been doing the Classic Mysteries podcast for more than six years.
That means I had already reviewed about 70 classic mysteries only as audio files on the podcast before I started reviewing them in written form as well here on the blog.
Now among those first 70 podcasts - currently available only as downloads via the backlist page - are some of my absolute favorite mysteries, truly "oldies but goodies." In order to share some of these oldies with you, I plan to start re-reading some of my favorites in the coming months and posting about them here, as well as uploading an updated podcast to the library.
I've already done this with Rex Stout's The Final Deduction, re-reviewed here a few weeks back, and I'll be bringing you another favorite, Dashiell Hammett's The Thin Man this coming Monday. You can expect to see several more of my favorite oldies, as I have time and room for them. I still have a lot of new old books (and even some new new ones) to be read, but I really do want to re-introduce some of these classics. You can expect to see them here in the weeks and months to come.
