The fit between mysteries and science fiction is a natural one. In fact SFRevu has had reviewed several science fiction mysteries over the last few months: Dead Man on the Moon by Steven Harper; Memory in Death by J.D. Robb; Sharper Than A Serpents Tooth by Simon Green; Already Dead by Charlie Huston; and The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde among others.
As for Malice Domestic, authors include Donna Andrews who has a series featuring a sentient AI Turing Hopper (You've Got Murder, Click Here for Murder, Access Denied, and Delete All Suspects). Carole Nelson Douglas who has written two science fiction novels (Probe and Counterprobe) as well as a series staring Irene Adler (from the Sherlock Holmes' A Scandal In Bohemia) as well as a cat noir series.
Susan Wittig Albert writes a series that features an amateur sleuth that runs an herbal shop and there is a wealth of information about the featured herb that will help any aspiring writer deal with herbs or find more research and the recipes are excellent. Lyn Hamilton has a series about an antiques buyer that always features lots of information about archeology and history -- fascinating stuff.
And there's lots more authors to enjoy and learn about. So check it out, we intend to.
