Hi, and welcome to Writers. This is not on-topic for us. SciFiSE does have a story-identification tag, but we don't.

comment Help in deciding setting
This is very broad. You will have to develop more of your plot, your characters, and your theme to determine the setting. Some plots are not dependent on setting or can be adapted to different times (c.f. Sherlock Holmes), and some only work in a particular time period (WWII stories). Until you figure out more of the story you want to tell, we can't help you to figure out when and where it should be told.

Sherlock Holmes stories before 1923 are public domain in the U.S.; details in stories published after that date are not public domain yet.

@TommyMyron not a bad idea, but not as a primary source — you don't know if the other authors did their research.

Why is Snowmageddon "catchy"? What's "catchy" about it? that's part of what I'm looking for.

comment How is “A song of ice and fire” not in violation of amazon's policies?
Hi, and welcome to Writers. Stack Exchange is not like other sites. We are not a discussion board. We require clear, answerable questions which have the potential to help others. We do not set Amazon's policies, so we can't explain them. This question is off-topic for us.

comment How to write polite follow up email?
Hi, and welcome to Writers. Stack Exchange isn't like other sites. We're not a discussion board. We require practical, answerable questions which have the potential to help others. This is a "what to write" question, and therefore is not on-topic for us. Please take our tour writers.stackexchange.com/tour to get a feel for the kinds of questions we can answer.
