Daughters of Freya, the email mystery novel I mentioned a few weeks back, has got a few reviews now, in Crime Scene Scotland, which also has an explanation of how the idea for the story developed from one of the authors. There’s also a short review by Sid Weaver and one at a blog called I love a good mystery.

All three reviewers say that at the outset they were skeptical to the idea of a story told in emails that are delivered straight to your inbox, yet all got into the story and enjoyed the form. That’s pretty cool.

Neither the reviewers or the authors seem to have read any other email narratives. Me, I just wish there were more of them. I like stories in my email.
And yes, I’m going to write more about how I liked Daughters of Freya, don’t worry.
