I am interested in reading more of the early detective fiction so I have been trying to find recommendations for books to read. These are but a few from that list.
I wanted to read The Rector of Veilbye (first published 1829) by Steen Steensen Blicher but I could not find it easily available in an English translation. Instead I have got:
- The Diary of a Parish Clerk and other short stories, (DPC first published 1824), S Steensen Blicher
I have also acquired:
- L'Affaire Lerouge (first published 1866), Émile Gaboriau (published in English as The Widow Lerouge)
- The Leavenworth Case (first published 1878), Anna Katherine Green
Finally, I got:
- The Moonstone (first published 1868), Wilkie Collins
