Some of us put together a list of descriptions for a day like this-a day for staying home and reading/writing: slow rain;mizzle;drizmal;damping(not exactly raining, now exactly NOT raining) Any to add?

So, a list, or a series of lists:

Mystery Writers:

Jo Nesbo; P.D. James; Deborah Crombie; Steig Larsson; Sharyn McCrumb; Kate Atkinson; Ian Rankin;  Janet Evanovich;  Shirley Jackson (one of the alltime best!); Donna Leon; Michael Dibdin;  Val  McDermid;  Anne Perry; Yrsa Sigurdardottir; Fred (yes, she’s a woman) Vargas. Older ones, such as Josephine Tey’s The Daughter of Time; Daphne DuMaurier; John Buchan’s The Thirty Nine Steps and Witchwood. Okay, I can go one, but I’ll stop.

Historical Novelists:

Dorothy Dunnett;-my favorite; Pat Barker’s WWI novels; Patricia Finney; Alison Weir; John Buchan; Willa Cather; Geraldine Brooks; Mary Renault; Isabel Allende; Arturo Perez Reverte; Carlos Ruiz Zafon; Rosemary Sutcliff; Wilkie Collins; Bernard Cornwell; George MacDonald Fraser. Oh, yes and the author of MacGregor’s Bargain. That would be me.


Enough of lists for now. I’m  going to go read Niccolo Rising about my favorite anti-hero.
