Welcome to BEYOND THE SHELF on


BEYOND THE SHELF is general commentary about the blog or the mystery and crime writing business by author and site administrator Shannon Muir that doesn’t fall in the scope of a regular column. 

Doing the new e-book, THE PULP AND MYSTERY SHELF: THOUGHTS FROM THE SHELF, turned out to be a lot of fun. It let me see where I had changed and grown, plus make some new realizations.

Our current times have – not necessarily as well as we might have wanted or expected – probably allowed that opportunity to show up for many of us. Whether we actually want to grab it is another thing.

Right now, I don’t really know what future weekend columns will look like. The only thing I can promise reasonably is that the MYANNA mini-story that has been going on for installments for several years now will reach its climax starting after Memorial Day weekend. After that, I’m not sure how much short fiction may appear here on the site.
