In 2004 I decided that it was time to stop ignoring Australian Crime Fiction and support the local authors. All well and good, but to do that I had to track down the authors and the books that they wrote. The first thing that became glaringly obvious was that I wasn't going to be able to easily track down a list of Australian mystery authors and their books from a single site.
After months of hunting, picking, compiling and listing I have put together the makings of what I hope will become an extensive listing of Australian Crime Fiction. Because I also enjoy reviewing books, I have started including links to my book reviews. Over time the number of these will grow as I progress through the list.
You will also find there will be opportunities to buy the books that are listed on the site. I have included inks to a couple of different sites that sell Australian books at reasonable prices. The first is a site that just about everyone will have heard of, namely Amazon.com. As well as being able to buy new books Amazon also provides you with the opportunity of picking up used books too. You can also buy books in electronic format through Amazon. The second site is AbeBooks.com. AbeBooks provides you with access to hundreds of booksellers around the world and no matter how old or obscure the book might be it is very likely that it will be listed at AbeBooks.com - and for a very low price too.
I have compiled this site on my own and my knowledge is not exhaustive so this database is by no means complete. I am relying on you out there to let me know of any omissions I have made. I am passionate about crime fiction and Australian fiction in particular and am always happy to find out more about the genre.
Please feel free to mail me with any authors/titles you believe belong on this list. Email me any additions or improvements you might have..
