What Kind of Mystery Do You Like? December 14, 2016

Posted by CCLD in Uncategorized.
Tags: ,
add a comment

There are numerous kinds of mystery stories available to read and enjoy. Many concepts have developed since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie penned their famous tomes, that broaden the appeal and hook more mystery fans.

The following list is courtesy of the Seattle Mystery Bookshop. This list of types has expanded to include about a dozen styles of mysteries, with many crossover hybrids added for spice.

The Caper Novel

This is one of the newer forms, centered on the commission of some type of crime or scam, usually outrageous and frequently humorous. Will it succeed, and will the scoundrels get away with it? Gives us an opportunity to root for characters we might not root for in real life.

The Classic Mystery Novel

A work of fiction which should meet all the requirements of any novel, and is additionally expected to include four essential elements:

~Crime (usually, but not necessarily, murder)

~Detective(s), whether professional (police or private) or amateur

~An investigative process and

~The identification of the culprit(s)

The Crime Novel

“Mysteries” and more; less dependence on the four essential elements. Often in a crime novel, the “good guys” and the “bad guys” share equal time – you know whodunit – but you don’t know how the story will be resolved.

The Whodunit

Although basically a synonym for mystery, the term whodunit is generally used to describe works such as many of the “traditional” or “classic” mysteries of the 1920’s and 30’s, which contain significant elements of a puzzle.

The Pastische

Is a technique where an author imitates another author’s style (and/or characters), in a respectful way. The Italian Secretary by Caleb Carr is a pastische; he is imitation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s style and character, Sherlock Holmes.

The Urban Fantasy

Is a genre defined by geography; it is a mystery which has supernatural or fantasy elements (read vampires, werewolves, ghosts, and possessions for example), but it must take place in an urban (i.e. city, generally speaking the larger the better) environment somewhere on earth (usually). It can be set during any time period, however a good portion are set in the present or future time periods.

The Steampunk

Takes an alternate view of history; what would the world look like today if steam power had never been replaced? Often features anachronistic technologies or innovations which could only have been dreamed of during the early 19th century. The fashions, culture, architecture and style are most often modeled after Victorian Britain.

The Cozy

Think Agatha Christie. Think cats. Think culinary. The cozy is a mystery in which a murder, perhaps violent, is committed offstage. In her entertaining 1977 book, Murder Ink, Dilys Winn described the cozy as “a small village setting, a hero[ine] with faintly aristocratic family connections, a plethora of red herrings, and a tendency to commit homicide with sterling silver letter openers and poisons imported from Paraguay.”

The Agatha Award nominees and winners are either cozies or on the cozier side.

The Hard-Boiled/Noir

Murder taken out of the drawing room and into the streets; read realism. Chandler wrote about authors who “gave murder back to the kind of people that commit it for reason, not just to provide a corpse.” Generally, but not always, featuring a private detective; usually, but not always, pervaded by pessimism. The humor, if any, will be dark. Lawrence Block’s Matt Scudder novels are excellent examples. This style has been made into movies for decades (The Big Sleep, The Maltese Falcon, Out of the Past) and can also be characterized by the same term, noir. Like crime novels, hardboiled stories tend to be urban.

The Soft-Boiled

The realism of the hard-boiled but tempered with optimism, and humor that is light. Lawrence Block’s Bernie Rhodenbarr (“Burglar”) novels exemplify this type, and provide a clear contrast to the hard-boiled Scudder.

The Police Procedural

A novel which attempts to describe all the activities the police undertake in solving a crime. These novels often have several seemingly unrelated crimes under investigation in one novel. They often employ forensics, autopsies, search warrants, interrogations and interviews to gather the evidence needed for an arrest. The perpetrator of the crime may or may not be known at the beginning of the book.

The Suspense

Similar to thrillers, the danger is more likely to be psychological than physical, based more on expectation or fear of harm than on frankly hazardous situations. In this type of story, the main character is normally an innocent caught up in danger – think of North by Northwest. This is an area that may get blended with a touch or horror, which comes under the term “Gothic”.

The Thrillers

Plenty of action, accent on plot. Tension. Emphasis on placing the protagonist in dangerous circumstances – usually physically dangerous. James Bond. Lawyers/defendants in the courtroom. Spies everywhere. Derring-do anywhere. Rather than solving a crime, the object may be to prevent one from happening to our hero or heroine. In this type of book, the main character is active, a professional.

The True Crime

This is a type of novel which deals with a real crime, with or without a murder, examining the motives of real people and events. These novels can run the gambit of from being highly speculative in nature to sticking the basic facts of the case, ultimately allowing the reader to draw their own conclusions. The crimes which are written about can be pulled from current headlines or examine cases from the past, such as; JFK’s assassination, the Ripper murders, Marilyn Monroe’s death or the Gardner heist.

All these types of fiction can be found on our shelves or on Overdrive’s ebook selections.

Pick Up a Copy of Book Page! September 28, 2016

bookpageWhile on vacation, a staff member visited the local library (yes, library workers never get enough of libraries, we even visit them when we are out of town!).

She was perusing and appreciating the library flyers, announcements, and notices, when she came upon a neat book-related magazine, free of charge. Keeping her own library in mind, she brought it back with her to share, and for us at the Steele Library to consider offering it here.

Well, the staff really liked the magazine, and we decided to provide it to our Steele patrons. It is called Book Page, and it is full of the newest releases – anything from Adult Fiction and Non Fiction, to Cookbooks, Romance, Christian Fiction, Mysteries, Audio Books, Teen selections and Children’s new releases. It also features author interviews.

Collected in this tidy little take-away are some really good suggestions. It highlights interesting subjects, different avenues of reading to pursue, and at the same time brings to you what’s up and coming in the literary world. A new issue available at the beginning of each month, it’s a fresh little gem, free for the taking!

Beneficial Bits ‘n Bytes – Printing a new Barcode for your Library Card September 9, 2016

Posted by CCLD in Beneficial Bits n' Bytes, Uncategorized.

add a comment

Is the barcode on your library card or library card key tag so faded that our barcode scanner cannot read it? I have recently discovered an easy way to print and tape a barcode to a library card or key tag. Here are the directions.

  1. Go to http://www.barcode-generator.org/
  2. On the upper left side of the screen select Code 128 from the dropdown menu
  3. Type your 13 digit library card number then click create barcode


  1. On the right side of your screen you will see the new barcode, download, print, then tape to your library card


NOTE: you may need to resize the barcode image to fit on your card or key tag. I find it easy to do by inserting the image in Microsoft Word and resizing it to fit on the key tag or library card.
