Thought of an excellent story title this morning while on the bike: "Dr. Mudd, I Presume"

Also, if I wrote mysteries, I think I'd do a series about Franklin W. Dixon and Carolyn Keene shacking up, being literary detectives, assisted by boy genius Victor Appleton.

Ok, that's enough. Back to the blurg roll.

Since all three are pseudonyms, that's one heck of a shack.

But, hey, do it like "Ellery Queen" - the authorial pseudonym is also the main character in the book.

In fact, Ellery Queen might make a nice villain for this tale. Now I'm intrigued...

- yeff (a big Ellery Queen fan)

ps - Maybe Encylopedia Brown can make an appearance, too.

If you haven't read Brown Harvest by Jay Russell (IIRC), you should. And by "you", I mean "anyone who thinks that mystery book/series idea sounds good" -- it's not the same concept, but it's related.
