"Clues is a must-have for readers and writers of crime fiction. Scholarly, thought-provoking, wide-ranging in its topics, Clues covers the crime and thriller map."—Sara Paretsky

"A. Conan Doyle, notoriously resentful of Sherlock Holmes's success, liked to scorn 'police romances' as less significant and worthy of his talents than his other literary work. If he could have read Clues, the thinking mystery reader's journal, he would surely have felt differently—and learned much he never realized himself about even his own landmark contribution to the genre, from which so much else by others has flowed."—Jon Lellenberg, U.S. agent for the Arthur Conan Doyle estate

"I love reading Clues. Every issue provides thought-provoking, well-researched articles. The variety and scope of the material found in Clues makes an unparalleled, ongoing contribution to our understanding of the role of crime fiction in our culture, and the genre's reflection of its time and society."—Jan Burke, Edgar-winning author of The Messenger (2009)

"Clues is an important journal. It carries the torch of tradition that is the backbone of detective fiction. It goes below the surface and gets to the heart of what makes the genre so fascinating and valid today"—Michael Connelly, author of the Harry Bosch novels, including The Overlook (2007)

"For erudite and fascinating truths about mysteries, follow the clues to Clues, the scholarly journal that is an essential resource for every serious student of the mystery"—Carolyn Hart, author of Death Walked In (2008)

"With scholarship ranging from Poe to Peters, nothing beats Clues"—Joan Hess, author of Mummy Dearest (2008).

For over two decades, Clues has included the best scholarship on mystery and detective fiction. With a combination of academic essays and nonfiction book reviews, it covers all aspects of mystery and detective fiction material in print, television and movies. As the only American scholarly journal on mystery fiction, Clues is essential reading for literature and film students and researchers; popular culture aficionados; librarians; and mystery authors, fans and critics around the globe.
