Pretty Sinister Books Vintage Mystery Trivia Challenge

John Norris, the host of the exceptional Pretty Sinister Books blog, has initiated a mystery competition. As you would expect from a man of his considerable knowledge, it’s not for the faint of heart. Frankly, it is thoroughly fiendish and definitely requires some serious attention. But did I mention that there are even some tantalising prizes to be won? It is definitely worth a try and we can only hope that John will not publish a league table of the results to save the blushes of those of us who may not be as expert as we thought.

The Quiz is in 5 sections, broken down into Pseudonyms, settings, Watsons, detectives, and perhaps most tortuous of all – commonalities between two or more fictional characters.

Entries are open until 23 December – and details on how to enter can be found at:

Morituri te salutant!

    Thanks a bunch for the plug, Sergio! The gladiator salute cracked me up. I have updated the post to encourage prospective contestants to use reference books, the internet, and especially the blog posts of the past year at several mystery fiction blogs…including this one.
