What staff at PillartoPost.org daily online magazine likes about Michigan-based Strand Magazine is that it has evolved from a Sherlock Holmes-centric magazine to a more literary effort enhanced by an interactive web presence. For example, other book sites offer top ten reading lists but Strand takes it a bit farther by providing links to purchase the book mentioned on the spot.
Here are a few of Strand Magazine’s 12 Summer “Beach Reads” remembering that Strand Magazine is all in on mysteries and thrillers and Holmesian retro the summer list tilts in that direction:
Poirot: Agatha Christie’s Greatest Detective in the World by Mark Aldridge.
The Man Who Lived Underground by Richard Wright
Night, Neon: Tales of mystery and suspense by Joyce Carol Oates
CNN’s Jake Tapper made the list with his The Devil May Dance.
