Sorry. I don't know why those are not fully clickable links. It's either 'chrome' or the new laptop.

Those links are from archive.org

The wayback machine crawls the internet taking 'snapshots' and archiving them.

I had entered some h2g2 things and found some interesting results such as an early version of my page, 2001. Some early conversations with someone who is no longer here. The page that was displayed while the transition from h2g2.com to h2g2.co.uk. was underway and some other pages.

I'd prefer to have a husband who was alive -- if I had one at all, which isn't likely going forward.

I didn't realize it was a set.

Have you heard of or read Mary Roberts Rinehart?

I haven't read any of her books, nor seen movies adapted from them.

I have a list of "Greatest crime stories of all time," but Rinehart is not represented on it. Dorothy Sayers and Daphne Du Maurier are on the list, though. Also Georges Simenon, G K Chesterton, and Dashiel Hammett.

My list is a beefed-up version of:

I have read some of her books. The Circular Staircase was the first I read. Found it a long time ago on gutenberg.org (free) and found some paperbacks at a library sale last year. Gutenberg has added more of her books.

Mary Stewart of the Crystal Cave, Hollow Hills, The Last Enchantment and The Wicked Day... has written other things that most people don't realize. She was published in the mid 1950's with several books that are between mystery and romance novels... The Gabriel Hounds, Airs Above Ground, The Moon Spinners, Touch not the Cat and many more including two books for children.

Daphne Du Maurier would have been much more appreciated by my class if they would have said, yeah the English Manor house means absolutely nothing to a room full of 16 year olds who have no idea what a code of servant behavior is or why these people drink hot tea while you're reading Rebecca in 98F weather because it's summer reading, but hey she wrote stuff that Hitchcock turned into scary movies.

My mother swore by Mary Stewart.

I've probably read some of her books. She lived to 98, dying in 2014.
