The game is afoot! It’s time to exercise your little grey cells. From Nancy Drew to Scooby Doo, from Poe to Poirot, from the country houses to the urban night world, we love a mystery here at Pop Culture Reverie. We’re celebrating the whodunnits, the private eyes, the locked rooms, alibis and clues, everything mystery with a blogathon, 29-31 March 2019.
1) Topics may include movies, novels, video games, and TV. You may also write about general mystery topics like subgenres or tropes. Or, you can choose to study a particular detective or author.
2) No true crime or documentaries. However, docudramas of true stories (such as David Fincher’s Zodiac) are allowed.
3) Due to the abundance of potential topics, no duplicates will be allowed. Stories in different formats do not count as duplicates. For example, if someone does a novel, the movie version is still fair game.
4) No more than three entries per blog.
5) If you don’t have a blog on your own, I can post your entry on my blog.
6) New entries only. No old posts.
So grab your magnifying glass and join the hunt. Search for the evidence, interrogate the suspects, ferret out the villain, and join the fun.
