"Let's be truthful. There just isn't room or reason to keep all the
mystery-related magazines that I buy from time to time. But nothing will
persuade me to dispose of my collection of the MRJ. It's a constant source of reference. The idea of featuring themes for each issue was brilliant and enormously useful. I enjoy the reviews and letters, too. The editor Janet makes you feel one of her family. I'm proud to belong."
-Peter Lovesey, British Crime Writers' Association Gold and Diamond Dagger Award-Winning Author
"The Mystery Readers Journal: don't leave home without it (travel issues); don't go in the kitchen without it (culinary issues); don't be anywhere without it! It's the essential, invaluable, complete guide to mysteries by topic. I haven't been without it for over 15 years, and I never will be. And you can make friends through its pages (I have)."
-Meredith Phillips, Editor, Perseverance Press/John Daniel & Company
"MRJ is full of lively and entertaining articles by mystery writers
and fans, and the website is packed with information, which makes it a great cyber-companion to the Journal."
-Bill Crider, author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes mystery series
"Janet Rudolph's Mystery Readers Journal is a feast of delights for the intelligent mystery reader. Every issue focuses on a specific mysterious theme, and then serves it up in a variety of approaches, ranging from in-depth analysis of the sub-genre, to 'why I wrote about... by the authors, plus lots and lots more. The only thing to do after you have read Mystery Readers Journal is to go out and buy the books discussed. And believe me, I have!"
-Jaqueline Girdner, author of the Kate Jasper mystery series
"MRJ offers a marvelous forum for exploring subject areas in depth and hearing from authors on their works outside a sales pitch context. I
look forward to learning something from each issue."
-Barbara Peters, The Poisoned Pen
"Mystery Readers Journal consistently delivers information and pleasure to anyone interested in crime fiction. In quarterly issues neatly organized by theme -- senior sleuths, culinary mysteries -- savvy reviewers tell you who is writing what and how well, and writers let you in on their particular secrets. Add the notes on members, bookstores, and upcoming events, and MRJ is definitely a winning package."
-Janet LaPierre, author of the Port Silva Mysteries
"I've been a member of MRI for years. I thoroughly enjoy the in-depth
treatment of various mystery themes, and always put the new issue down with more titles for my Want List. I'm also jealous as heck over the connections Janet has with authors, and her powers of persuasion in getting them to write for the journal. And her calendar section is a primary resource for me when I'm preparing the calendar section in my own journal."
