Updating a couple of posts

As an update to my entry on Diane Stuckart’s title, The Queen’s Gambit, featuring Leonardo da Vinci, I recently discovered that Martin Woodhouse wrote a three-book series in the 1970s with da Vinci as the lead detective.  I have not read them yet, but for those interested, Medici Guns is the first in the series. 

I found out about Woodhouse on the Wakefield, MA Library site.  I have written about their historical mystery list before, but they also have a second list just for “Historicals featuring real people as sleuths.”  The Wakefield site credits the Morton Grove (IL) Public Library for the original list and Morton Grove credits Marla of Great Falls (MT) Public Library for compiling the list from contributions from the Fiction_L mailing list.

In that older post which mentions Wakefield’s library, I also listed the Seattle Public Library’s HM list.  They recently had an entry on their own blog about medieval mysteries set exclusively in Britain.  As with their general HM list, they’ve taken selections from the major authors in the genre and provide nice synopses of each.  A good starting point for newcomers, but veterans will find little they haven’t seen before.
