Current Projects

I am planning a first book on post-World War Two US detective fiction and its influence on the development of literary postmodernism.

I am currently working on two shorter projects: one focusing on Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine during the Cold War and a second on the tradition of women’s hard-boiled detective fiction.
