    • Abstract:
      Crime fiction frequently takes the real and imaginary geography of islands as its setting and subject. Through a reading of selected novels by Anne Zouroudi, Jeffrey Siger, and Paul Johnston, this article looks at ways in which ideas about 'islandness' operate in contemporary English-language crime fiction set in the Aegean Sea. Specifically, it uses geocriticism and spatial literary studies to explore the ways non-textual paratext--in particular covers and maps--work alongside a text, or narrative, to capitalize on the lure of islands.
