About

The Means At Hand is a project about “crime fiction” (an admittedly very-loose and broad term). We’re looking at why we love it, how it influences what we love, what it does, what it’s shown us, where it goes, where it can go, and ultimately what it can show us.

This is a project collecting nonfiction and fiction about crime, about mysteries, and about how we look at crime and mysteries. So check out what we do, and join in the discussion.
