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.
1.) E. R. Punshon's Music Tells All. Crime-solving duo.
1.) Michael Innes' The Secret Vanguard. Pseudonymous Author.
2.) Erle Stanley Gardner's The Case Of The Haunted Husband. Alliterative Title.
1.) Michael Innes' Lament For A Maker. During A Recognized Holiday.
2.) Michael Innes' Operation Pax. In a hospital/nursing home.
1.) Erle Stanley Gardner's The Case of the Velvet Claws. Death by Shooting
1.) E. C. Bentley's Trent's Last Case. 'Best of' List.
2.) Charles Dickens' The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Favorite Author.
1.) Michael Innes' The New Sonia Wayward. Armed Services.
1.) Peter Robinson's The Hanging Valley. Set In A Small Village.
1.) Ross Macdonald's The Blue Hammer. At Least Two Deaths By Different Means.
2.) L. R. Wright's The Suspect. Death by Blunt Instrument.
1.) Erle Stanley Gardner's The Case Of The Spurious Spinster. TBR List.
