A catalogue of crime

Librarian's place links to an article about the four finest mystery anthologies, and one vital guide from the Wall Street Journal's Opinion Journal. You might be especially interested in the discussion of A Catalogue of Crime by Jacques Barzun and Wendell Hertig Taylor, which the Journal calls "the single (sic) best annotated compendium of mystery and espionage literature ever assembled."
