In all my excitement over my latest Figure Skating Mystery, "Axel of Evil," being out now, I almost forget to tell you about all the other new skating titles available -- just in time for the Olympics, of course!

Frozen in Time : The Enduring Legacy of the 1961 U.S. Figure Skating Team by Nikki Nichols

“I interviewed the children, widows, students, siblings, and friends of those who died (in the plane crash), along with some skaters and judges who were impacted by the crash and the rebuilding period,” Nikki revealed. “Many people I interviewed were so excited that their loved ones would finally be remembered in a way that would reach outside of the skating community.”

A is for Axel: An Ice Skating Alphabet by (4-time World Champion) Kurt Browning

Figure Skating: A History by Dr. James R. Hines

“The book is based on scholarly research,” Hines explained to me. "It has been written to serve skaters, coaches, officials, and fans as well other persons interested in figure skating or sports generally.”

On Edge: Backroom Dealing, Cocktail Scheming, Triple Axels, and How Top Skaters Get Screwed by Jon Jackson

In addition, I am intrigued by the Sale/Pelletier Memoir that was announced last year, as coming out on March 3, 2006 by Judy Steed. While still listed on Amazon, it appears that the title has been cancelled. Hmmmm..... A true Figure Skating Mystery...

And speaking of books: Go, Emily Hughes! (Sister of Sarah, who Skated to the Stars only four short years ago)
