Here is a list of my limited bookmarks--some are mystery-related, some are not. Since you can construct a psychological profile on anybody by looking at his/her book case, record rack or browser bookmarks, I don't dare to show you all my bookmarks. Now that I write a monthly column on the mystery scene in cyberspace for Hayakawa's Mystery Magazine, a Japanese magazine with stories, reviews, columns, photos and other interesting things, I frequently visit these following sites.
