Crimeculture Christopher Pittard, University of Newcastle There are two points to consider when talking about Victorian detective fiction: firstly, that the detective story as a distinct genre is a product of the nineteenth century; and secondly, that only a small amount of the detective fiction produced at the time is still read and studied. For most people, Victorian detective fiction is constituted by the Sherlock Holmes stories (despite the fact that a number of these stories were written well into the twentieth century) and perhaps the trio of Dupin tales written by Edgar Allan Poe in the 1840s. Some readers may also be aware of the detective story's generic cousin, the sensation novel, and in particular the contribution of Wilkie Collins to the genre. Yet few are aware of the great body of work marking the transitional phase from the initial success of the detective story to the height of Holmes' popularity in the early twentieth century.
Donnely Loeb collection Loeb Classical Library Books Available Online Things just keep growing. This list was initially a subset of my G'Oogle list, which itself had grown out of a post I originally made at textkit. Anyway, this is hoped to be a more-convenient way for us to track all of the freely-available LCL books out there. I have sorted these by Loeb catalog number, so that it will be easier for everyone to know what we have found and what is still missing (but hopefully out there for free, at least those that have passed into the public domain).

Joyful Molly UNDER CONSTRUCTION (status: September 2010) Until this part has been updated, please see the original list here. Thanks a lot for your patience. “How on earth can I write about something I don’t know anything about?!” This question started the “useful list”; a helpful link-collection for myself and my fellow authors of Age of Sail fiction. There are books, my preferred method of research, but not everybody has the time or the financial means to fill the halls with piles of paper. Therefore, my main focus was a list of easily accessible online-links. Heidelberg University Library All about ...

Hearts Through History Romance Writers By Jody Allen On Dec 20 2011, 7:03 am As writers no matter if you write historical or contemporary, fantasy or suspense,we all do research to make our characters come alive in their period and locations. For those writing fantasy world building is the key, but for those of us who write historicals we must rely on the historical facts of an event or era or location to give credibility to our story. For us the history becomes like another character in our story. We know the basic tenant for historians doing research is to use the historical method, but the kind of research most of us do is often looking for minute details of what they ate, wore, their work and pastime and something as simple as their name or title.
Wikipedia The Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon ((French) Musée des beaux-arts de Lyon) is a municipal museum of fine arts in the French city of Lyon. It is housed near place des Terreaux in a former Benedictine convent of the 17th and 18th centuries. It was restored between 1988 and 1998, and despite these important restoration works it remained open to visitors. Its collections range from ancient Egypt antiquities to the Modern art period and make the museum one of the most important in Europe. It hosts important exhibitions of art : recently there have been exhibitions of works by Georges Braque and Henri Laurens (second half of 2005), then one on the work of Théodore Géricault (April to July 2006).
