Mystery Readers Group: Evolutions of Authors and Their Series

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Aging characters, prequels and sequels, dying authors and replacement writers...

Sometimes the stories just keep coming - for better or for worse. This time, we'll discuss perennial writers and series.

  • Progression of protagonist: did they age, improve their detecting techniques, bore you with the same crimes or locations? 
  • Which authors wrote prequels or sequels?
  • As they aged, who wrote their series along with relatives? 
  • Replacement writers: Did they do a good job? How did they change the characters or settings?
The Mystery Readers Group meets online on the third Wednesday of each month, with a different topic or guest author at each meeting. First-timers are always welcome!
