Just the Facts, Ma'am 2019: My Sign-Up


Well, naturally I am signing up for my very own 2019 edition of the Vintage Mystery Challenge--another round of Just the Facts, Ma'am. I mean vintage mysteries are kind of my thing. The object of the game is to answer all the important questions of Who, What, When, Where, How, and Why to complete cases in either the Golden of Silver Mystery Eras (or for the compulsive challengers, like me, both). See the Detective Notebooks below. For a complete run-down of the rules, please click on the link above.

I will be participating in both reading Eras. My plan will be to complete as many categories as possible, but my commitment will have been met when I reach the Inspired Amateur level (24 books) in the Golden Age and the Detective Sergeant Level (12 books) in the Silver Age.
