Crime Fiction Alphabet (A), week beginning 5 October 2009

The Alphabet in Crime Fiction - a Community Meme.

Here are the rules

Each week you have to write a blog post about crime fiction related to the letter of the week.
Your post MUST be related to either the first letter of a book's title, the first letter of an author's first name, or the first letter of the author's surname.

So you see you have lots of choice. You could write a review, or a bio of an author, so long as it fits the rules somehow.

Please check each Monday for the letter of the week, and then link your post back to the page. Also come back and put the link to your blog post in Mr. Linky below.
Then come and check to see who else has posted and visit their blog.
You have until the end of the week to complete your mission.

Oh, this should be fun! Thanks, Kerrie : )

Dorte H said...

What a great idea to make your own alphabet meme :D

I plan to use it for some ´easy posts´, using photos and very little text whenever that is possible.

Bella said...

What a fabulous idea. I'm doing the Alhabet Challenge so I will be checkin out all the book/author posts, since I do love a good dose or crime fiction.

Marg said...

I am going to try and participate in this one!

Margot Kinberg said...

Sorry to leave yet another comment, Kerrie, but I wanted you to know that I've already posted my contribution for "A."

Good meme Kerrie - I read loads of books before starting my blog and this is a chance to highlight some of them. thanks.

Kerrie said...

Thanks Margo - for those looking for Margo's post it is here.

Kerrie said...

Thanks Bernadette - anything to oblige - some letters should provide considerable brain stretching

Good morning.
I must tell you that I resist joining anything. I'm a bit like Groucho Marx (whose birthday is today) in that I would not want to join a club that would have me as a member. Well, with that having been noted, I nevertheless throw my hat into the ring on your Alphabet Game. I shall try to keep up at Novels, Stories, and More. I've also linked your site among my favorites. So, in closing, I simply say, all the best from the Gulf coast of the American south. Y'all have a nice day, y'hear.

I'll give it a go - though as you say, Kerrie, some letters are a challenge. Watch out for duplicates!

Kerrie said...

I'm looking forward to your contribution RT - I have made the rules deliberately "loose" so the letter A at the start of the title, at the beginning of either of the author's names, are all acceptable. You see, there will be letters much harder to find in later rounds, specially when people have to associate it with crime fiction. Thee and me, though, will have no trouble will we? It doesn't have to be a book newly read either. Recycle a long-buried review if you like.

Kerrie said...

Bella - this should help you locate the hard to find letters but the first round will take half a year- not sure what we will do then - start again?

Kerrie said...

Doret - I think easy posts is the way to go - by all means hoik out something that hasn't seen daylight for a while

Kerrie said...

Yours is a good one Marg. I'll be glad to have your contributions any time

Kerrie said...

Glad to have you here Maxine. Not too worried about duplicates - what was that quote - "we all read a different novel" - even when our eyes travel over the same pages.

R. T. said...

And "hoik" would be an Australian word? And it means . . . ?

Kerrie said...

RT - it basically, in my understanding anyway, means "spit up from the depths"

Wiktionary tells me it is "(cricket) a wild hook shot played without style
"
or further (as a verb)
1. to play such a shot
2. to lift something up wildly
3. to throw something out

R. T. said...

Ah, it is a term from cricket. Of course, then, a denizen of the American Gulf coast (famous for cheese grits, heart-stopping fried food, and the oxymoronic jumbo shrimp) would not have been familiar with the word. Thanks for clearing it up for me.
