I've been working on the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association's 100 Favorite Mysteries of the 20th Century (http://www.mysterybooksellers.com/favorites.html
). I'm about a quarter of the way through. Some real winners in there, like Randy Wayne White's SANIBEL FLATS. Though I can't believe John D. MacDonald's BRASS CUPCAKE isn't on there -- then again, most people enjoy Travis McGee over his stand-alone novels.
