(This is an update of and extension of deadline for the call for papers
originally posted on April 9. Please read that posting or contact me for more
details about the collection.)

My apologies to those who may have submitted abstracts in the past few weeks

OTHERNESS IN CONTEMPORARY BRITISH DETECTIVE FICTION (post 1980). Our
university network problems have resulted in faculty members not receiving some

senders were not made aware of the fact that their messages never made it to
the recipient).
