I helped Gweyn clean the kids up this evening. Went down to the book shop and traded for a couple of mystery books.

Dorothy Leigh Sayers (13 June 1893 – 17 December 1957) was a renowned
English crime writer, poet, poet, playwright, essayist, translator and Christian humanist.
She was also a student of classical and modern languages. She is best known for her
mysteries, a series of novels and short stories set between World War I and World
 War II that feature English aristocrat and amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey.
However, Sayers herself considered her translation of Dante's Divina Commedia
to be her best work. She is also known for her plays and essays.
