Friends of Mystery is a non-profit literary/educational organization headquartered in Portland, Oregon. Its purpose is to promote educational study in all realms related to mystery. Members are interested in fiction, true crime, how mysteries are solved, and many other aspects of knowledge that can be included in the term “mystery.” They sponsor a series of public meetings, called Bloody Thursdays, which are currently virtual, although they look forward to holding in-person events again. They publish a newsletter, The Blood-Letter, give an annual award, the Spotted Owl, for the best mystery by a Pacific Northwest author, and sponsor a local reading group.

September:  Spotted Owl Winner Warren Easley will be interviewed by Ellie Alexander
November: Friends of Mystery Presents John Straley
January: Friends of Mystery Presents Mike Lawson
March: What if Sherlock Holmes was a Woman? Sherry Thomas answers the question.
