Vintage Mystery Challenge 2018 Signup

Bev at MyReadersBlock has changed her vintage mystery challenge to a new format this year, titled Just the Facts, Ma'am and it looks like a fun one.

I've been having a good time reading along for this year's Vintage Mystery challenge, and I'm definitely up for another year.

Since I typically read more Golden Age mysteries than Silver Age (or contemporary for that matter) I'm going to go for the Detective Sergeant level, 12 or 2 in each category in  the Golden Age and the Constable level of 6 or 1 in each category for the Silver Age.

Here are the category cards. I'm already enjoying thinking about what mysteries I might slot in against each type.



Gold:

Who

1.) E. R. Punshon's Music Tells All. Crime-solving duo.
2.)

What

1.) Michael Innes' The Secret Vanguard. Pseudonymous Author.

When

1.) Michael Innes' Lament For A Maker. During A Recognized Holiday
2.)

Where

1.) Patricia Wentworth's Eternity Ring. Set In A Small Village.
2.)

How
