Stamping out Crime

Love crime fiction? Love stamps? Here's the website for you...

Detective Fiction on Stamps.

Amazing what you find when you're trolling around for something else on The Net. I was looking for a Ngaio Marsh picture and found, to my pleasure (I do like stamps) she featured on an eighty cent stamp in a series that also pictured New Zealand litterati Katherine Mansfield, James K Baxter and Bruce Mason.

Others who get the stamp treatment are Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie, who have been licked and sent all over the world. Edgar Allan Poe is there as well as a number of actors who have played detectives in film adaptations.

So there you are, a bit of fun for a Saturday morning.
