So You Think You Know Vintage Mysteries?

The absolutely fabulous John over at Pretty Sinister Books is hosting a second year of a trivia contest designed to tempt those of you who think you know your stuff.  Yes, the "So You Think You Know Vintage Mysteries? Trivia Challenge" returns, my fellow detective novel bibliophiles! And John has renamed it "Challenge to the Reader" in honor of the early Ellery Queen novels.  He has promised to go much lighter on the obscure authors and novels that nobody (not even him) has reviewed, so hopefully things will be a bit easier this year.

Still, he's put together a fiendishly clever set of clues to keep even the most devious-minded mystery-lover busy for hours. But, hey, detective fiction readers tend to like puzzles and I think you should all give it a go. I know I'm going to--even though I know that John knows WAY more about vintage mysteries than I ever will.

There are prizes available as well! Prize level is awarded based on number of correct answers with first place to the one who gets them all or the most right, second for the second highest, etc. He's awarding one point for each answer correct. AND is offering bonus points in case you make any mistakes.

So--if you're a mystery lover--what are you waiting for? Click on John's blog above and go test your mystery knowledge!
