What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

  • Detective Fiction and Mystery Fiction are currently defined in a way that make them identicle.
  • Mystery Fiction is a newer trope with no exampes and less use on work pages.
  • The two terms are widely used as interchangeable and even synonymous outside of this wiki. There is no single, universally agreed upon distinction between the two terms.

Redefine and rewrite the two genres in order to make Detective Fiction a distinct subgenre of Mystery Fiction.

Merge Mystery Fiction and Detective Fiction under the title Mystery And Detective Fiction, noting while some sources list these separately, there is no single universally used distinction between the two, and many sources (including many dictionaries and libraries) define the two as being synonymous.
