Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...

Attention All Challengers! here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

Tuesday Night Bloggers

This month at our Tuesday Night Bloggers meetings we will be examining mysteries within a historical context--either historical mysteries (written, say in 1930 but set in the Victorian period, for example) or which take place during or around a historical event or which address historical issues. The field is wide-open so if you have historical mysterious thoughts to share, please stop by for group discussion and I'll add your posts to the list. We tend to focus on the Golden Age of crime fiction--generally accepted as published between the World Wars, but everyone seems to have a slightly different definition and we're pretty flexible. Essays on more recent crime fiction are welcome as well.

This week's Historical Experts:

Brad @ Ah Sweet Mystery Blog: "Magpie Murders: The Silver Age & the Modern Era Collide"
Kate @ Cross Examining Crime: "Writing the 1930s"
JJ @ The Invisible Event: "Man & Superman: Refining the Protagonist in John Dickson Carr's Historical Mysteries"
The Puzzle Doctor @ In Search of the Classic Mystery Novel: "In Praise of Michael Jecks"
Moira @ Clothes in Books: "Boston 1918"

And that's all folks...I haven't had a chance to put anything together this week. So, I'm going  to sit this one out. Next month the Tuesday Night Bloggers will be taking a look at Foreign Mysteries (non-US and non-UK)--either set in a foreign locale, translated works from authors outside, or, for the more adventurous, a comparison of books written by someone NOT from the locale in question to a work by someone from that country. 

I'll be collecting here at the Block again in December, so feel free to join in and I'll add you to each week's listing.
