Carnival of the Criminal Minds, No. 9

February 7, 2008


Every day’s a carnival at Crimespot, the site that aggregates all the blague fit to blog from a wide variety of crime fiction-related sites. But this week, the site features a very special spot – Black Mystery Month. As a nod to Black History Month, this feature highlights African-American detectives, with links to an informative compilation by Brian Lindemuth, a helpful introduction to some memorable black detectives by Kevin Burton Smith over at January Magazine, and appreciations of Ed Lacy and In the Heat of the Night.

Next Up: the Carnival is heading to the erudite and well-informed research mecca, In Reference to Murder, where BV Lawson (rhymes with “awesome”) will delight carnival goers with daring feats of discovery.
