I’ve been reading classic crime fiction since Agatha Christie’s The Murder of Roger Ackroyd in 1999 and have finally settled on my niche being the classics of the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s. I’ll usually try most things from that era, and will commit to definitely reading something if it features an impossible crime. Elsewhere I’m a bit picky — I don’t really go in for a lot of contemporary crime writing, I’m afraid, and even I haven’t pinned down what my SF tastes are yet — but again will try practically anything where something happens that doesn’t seem possible but then turns out to’ve been perfectly rational all along. Some people have told me that this is because, as a mathematician, I have an innate love of logic and puzzles; I’m more inclined to think it’s just that I enjoy a good conceit well-explored.
