Synopsis

College-mystery novels, a subgenre known for settings within universities and college towns, draw a reading audience comprised of both academics and the general mystery fan. Likewise, John E. Kramer has created a resource suitable for the investigative scholar and the lay reader interested in these works. This bibliography of 483 novels is organized chronologically by date of publication, ranging between 1910 to 1999. Indices at the end of the volume allow the reader to search by author and title as well as by institutional setting and academic disciplines. Kramer's entries, comprised of plot summary and author biography, avoid cumbersome literary jargon and refrain from making judgements on the quality of the works. In addition to bibliographical material on college mystery novels themselves, Kramer has included references to books, journals, and essays about the genre. Academe in Mystery and Detective Fiction promises to be an invaluable resource suited for scholarly inquiry and the lay mystery reader.

John E. Kramer is Professor of Sociology Emeritus at SUNY-Brockport. He is a member of the Popular Culture Association and has contributed several articles to its journal about mystery fiction Clues.
