There is information on the Dorothy L. Sayers Society and many other Mystery Organizations at MysteryNet's list of Mystery Organizations. Just click on the link at the top of the discussion to go there.
Here is what is listed for the Dorothy L. Sayers Society:

The Society was founded in 1976 to promote the study of the life, works and thoughts
of Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957), a noted scholar and the creator of the ineffable
Lord Peter Wimsey. It acts as a forum and central resource, putting members in touch
with other workers and sources of information, and providing for study purposes
material not otherwise available. It sponsors an annual seminar convention, publishes
the proceedings, and commemorates Sayers with plaques and notices as the

For antholigies of mystery stories, subscribe to "Alfred Hitchock Mystery Magazine", or "Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine".
Does anyone know if Joseph Harrington, author of three Sgt. Kerrigan books (The Last Doorbell, Last Known Address and Blind Spot), wrote under any other name? I have been trying to find more books by him for many years.
Does any body have any Kids solve it your self mini Mysterys. What I am after is a website with only lots and lots and lots of Mysterys on it. Some I want to be easy and some hard. I dont think there will be such a Website but email me a quick as Possible with a Website In mind. Thankyou
Andrew- Don't know if this is what would suit the bill, but try mightywords.com which has about 200 mysteries under mystery/thriller classification alone. My guess is that about 80 of these are short mysteries. You can read summary, author's bio, and reader reviews before purchasing. Most short stories at $2. They are not mini-mysteries per se. I have had my mini-mysteries published in "Woman's World" and the limit is 1,000 words for mini-mystery and I think 1,500 words for mystery.net. But WW is weekly and available at check-out counter at all grocery stores. My short mysteries on mightywords run from 1800 words to 5000 words, which is true of most on that site. Better opportunity to develop a complex plot and more in-depth characters.
