Very cool! Thanks for linking this.

I particularly like the essay from Emily Winslow, The Comfort of Crime Novels: "Crime fiction is entertainment, but being entertaining doesn’t trivialize what it allows its readers and writers to rehearse. Stories of what comes after a terrible event acknowledge the reality of terrible experiences with dignity and compassion." YES.
