The list is compiled from a number of print and online sources, both official and nonofficial. At this time, it is limited to professionally-published hardcover and paperback originals, with the occasional paperback reprint. I may decide to include audio books and/or e-books in future. I will not include ARCs or self-published works.
Reviews, blogs, convention announcements, and other information of interest to mystery readers are available in many places, including Dorothy-L, Reviewing the Evidence, and In Reference to Murder, to name only three well-known venues. The Bloodstained Bookshelf is simply a book list, and is not associated with any of the foregoing (well, I am a member of Dorothy-L, if that counts, but this list isn't).
The Bookshelf is strictly a labor of love provided as a service to mystery readers. I am not, as is obvious, a professional web designer; this is a bare-bones site (insert appropriate forensic puns here). I am not providing email notifications of site updates at this time. However, old dogs can sometimes learn new tricks, so hang in there (I will nobly refrain from comments about the suspense killing you). Meanwhile, I intend (road to hell notwithstanding) to update the site monthly.
Author [Lastname, firstname] - Title price publisher (reprint status) (series, if known)
If information has been inadvertantly omitted and you have the correct information, please let me know.
The dates of publication and the prices quoted are the publication dates and cover prices of the book to the best of my knowledge. I cannot guarantee that typos do not exist. Books are usually obtainable for less than cover price, but Iím not making any promisesóyour purchase price is between you and your seller, and I donít get a cut. Authors have been known to turn in books late, and publishers have been known to change their schedules.
The notation (r) after a listing indicates that as far as I can tell, it is a reprint. I could be wrong. Absence of an (r) does not mean that the listing is guaranteeds to be an original. There are no guarantees in life or this list.
