Rules for Mystery Writers

Posted March 10, 2012 by Kathy Davie in

Ilona Andrews posted this interesting bit of history—a set of rules drawn up by The Detection Club in England in the 1920s.

Andrews’ goes on to note S.S. Van Dine’s own set of Commandments he put together in 1928 followed by Raymond Chandler’s.

I thought they were interesting and wanted to pass them on to y’all.
