Mr. Reasoner and that whole big crew (Pronzini and so on) ghosted for the magazine, didn't they? I thought from the biblio that Dresser and Terrall did 90% of the books.

I think a Mike Shayne year might be a bit intensive, but perhaps we could turn the reading list into themed months. Each month we could take a writer or character or series and just have at it. Different people would end up reading different books and we'd end up with quite a conglomeration of facts and opinions. It'd mean people didn't have to worry about getting a specific title, too.
