Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Medeva steals the pen of Edgar Allen Poe after he wrote Fall of the House of Usher in Philadelphia in the year 1839.

After a Data Boost refuel after the Chronoskimmer misses its target time (instead ending up in the 1840s), the Elephant Guy gives clues directing Kevin and the Time pilots to England in 1920, when Agatha Christie published her first book.

After Global Pursuit through the early 1920s, Kevin and the time pilots meet a hippie who read Stephen King's Carrie and directing the pilots to 1974, where Medeva zaps their 'fact fuel'.

After getting clues from Medeva, Kevin and the pilots chase her to the U.S. in 1992, when R.L. Stine published his first Goosebumps book, and they retrieve Poe's pen.
