I love to read essays on literature, but above all I love to read essays on crime fiction. (**) An impressive portrait of a once very successful writer of paperback originals whose life ended tragically.
And if you want more inspiration, please check out my book 5,000 Writing Prompts!
It has 100 more mystery writing prompts in addition to the ones on this list, plus hundreds of other master plots by genre, dialogue and character prompts, and much more.
Looking finally at my list I see I have missed many names, for example the names of Anthony Boucher, Patricia Highsmith, Julian Symons, Francis M.
A convincing argument for the appreciation of the neglected work of an outstanding writer. Probably a list with 50 titles would be more adequate.
Holmes believes that the mind has a finite capacity of storing information and thus he has no reason of storing useless thin in his brain, as this would reduce his brain storage capacity.
He is also depicted to know Latin language, which became very useful to his detective lifestyle since he needed no interpretation in such matters if they arose.
That inspired me to write this list of prompts — and pieces of plots — for mystery stories. Early on, a dead body turns up, a valuable item goes missing, or a puzzle begs to be solved.
The reader knows that by the end of the book, questions will have been answered, which is a comforting element in even the most gruesome murder mysteries.
