Historical mystery sites, part 3

Twelve years ago, while working at Durham County Library, I compiled my first reader’s advisory on historical mysteries and if I can find my notes, I’ll start posting parts of it here.  But for now, I’ll recommend looking at DCL’s new list authored by B.J. Seitzer.  This static page (last updated in 2000) looks at fourteen titles, all set during medieval times, by some of the best known authors of this genre.  Several of these authors have been so successful that they have been able to publish a series of books with their characters.  Unfortunately for those who like to start series at the beginning, Seitzer has cherry-picked favorites in creating this sampler.  As a bonus, there are two historical fiction, one fantasy and one science fiction tales also set in this time period.
