Comments The Mammoth Book of Historical Detectives

  • Saad Yousaf

    While the stories chosen did appeal immensely for my taste of traditional who-dun-its, there is an immense gap in the narrative in the shape of Non-White, Non-Christian or Non-Western writers and stories. The stories that traditionally and geographically contain colored characters have been white-washed especially those based in the Land of Cannan. Furthermore, most ofthe stories are based in the western world, as history passes through the dark ages and the rise and fall of Rome and the Aborgin [...]

    Mike Ashley has edited a LOT of these volumes - historical mysteries ranging from Ancient Egypt through the Roaring Twenties. "The Mammoth Book of Historical Detectives" is divided in five sections - "The Ancient World," "The Middle Ages," "The Age of Discovery," "Regency and Gaslight," and "Holmes and Beyond." It's a good place to look for authors you might be interested in. Some of my personal favorites are "Death Wears a Mask" (Gordianus the Finder - Ancient Rome) by Steven Saylor, "The King [...]

    The Mammoth Book of Historical Detectives is a 1995 collection of 29 short stories. The stories are grouped into the historical eras of their setting. Nearly half are written specially for the collection, whilst the remainder have been written mostly during the preceding decades. Most of the stories are competently written, and few stand out above the others whilst some didn't appeal to me at all. I was particularly impressed by Peter Tremayne's 'Abbey Sinister' and William Hope Hodgson's 'The I [...]

    It took me a while to finish this collection, mainly because I found most of the stories included immensely uninteresting. I only liked three which were Peter MacAlan's "The Eye of Shiva", Edward D. Hoch's "The Trail of the Bells", and my favorite, Keith Heller's "Man's Inherited Death". It didn't help that these stories were found in the latter part of the book. I guess if you're a die-hard sucker for this type of material you'll find it more enjoyable than I did. Will probably only pick it up [...]

    As always with a compendium, there were some great stories and some that didn't appeal.
