Women writers and detectives in nineteenth-century crime fiction : the mothers of the mystery genre by Lucy Sussex( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a study of the "mothers" of the mystery genre. Traditionally the invention of crime writing has been ascribed to Poe, Wilkie Collins and Conan Doyle, but they had formidable women rivals, whose work has been until recently largely forgotten. The purpose of this book is to "cherchez les femmes," in a project of rediscovery"--Provided by publisher
Blockbuster! : Fergus Hume & the mystery of a hansom cab by Lucy Sussex( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before there was Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, there was Fergus Hume's The Mystery of a Hansom Cab - the biggest- and fastest-selling detective novel of the 1800s, and Australia's first literary blockbuster. Fergus Hume was an aspiring playwright when he moved from Dunedin to Melbourne in 1885. He wrote The Mystery of a Hansom Cab with the humble hope of bringing his name to the attention of theatre managers. The book sold out its first run almost instantly and it became a runaway word-of-mouth phenomenon - but its author sold the copyright for a mere fifty pounds, missing out on a potential fortune. Blockbuster! is the engrossing story of a book that would help define the genre of crime fiction, and a portrait of a great city in full bloom. Rigorously researched and full of arresting detail, this captivating book is a must-read for all fans of true crime, history and crime fiction alike" --Back cover

Saltwater in the ink : voices from the Australian seas by Lucy Sussex( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1800s, thousands of people travelled from England and Europe to the new lands of the Antipodes. The voyage was a period of transition, a time of unaccustomed leisure and reflection. It produced a mass of sea-diaries and letters - we could call them Victorian blogs. Much of this writing is extraordinary: the authors, even those with little education, revealing a gift for narrative, observation and indeed entertainment. They write of birth, death, shipwreck, flirtation and secret adoration. Lucy Sussex has collected these voices in Saltwater in the Ink
