Yes, Mystery/Thriller is a different nomination.

I'm not sure, maybe it'll be altered, but it looked like the other one was just "Crime".

That's why I'm asking. To clarify that the nomination is "just" Crime.

I guess we'll find out. That's why I nominated Mystery/Thriller separately though.

As I was the one who made the confusion: what is the difference between crime, mystery/crime and mystery/thriller according to the rules of this book club? Could you perhaps name one book that fits every category best or describe where they don't overlap? Many thanks.

There are no rules on it. It's only a matter of perception and your guess is as good as ours! Whichever one or ones do make it, I suppose it'll be up to the book nom process to sort it out.

Last year we had two categories of Mystery/Crime and Thriller/Suspense, and they pretty much had almost the exact same kind of nominations. We have some great new category noms and if new ones are going to make it (and one already has) then some old categories have to be combined or eliminated, so to me, making a combined category of Mystery/Thriller is a great option.

To me: Crime alone would be heavier on the crime drama; proceedural type. Mystery/Thriller would be heavier on the suspense, and Mystery/Crime would be an equal mix.

I nominated "crime" because I think it's not the same as "mystery". "Thriller" could probably be combined with either.
But it's no big deal to me if we somehow combine the three! Or not...

Edit: Ups, sorry medard. I see I thirded these two categories.
Mysteries & Crime could be considered separate categories, but since no one's nominated Mysteries, I'll add your vote to that category.

"not the same as mystery" is not a description. If no one provides a useable distinction, I would like to see them combined.


I will strategically third Fantasy for reasons laid out in the March selection thread:
