Description - Fifty Best Mysteries by Eleanor Sullivan

Fifty Best Mysteries is a who's who of mystery from the pages of the leading magazine in the field. Showcasing the best short fiction published in Ellery Queen magazine over the past sixty years, this book is a treasure trove for mystery lovers everywhere. As editor Eleanor Sullivan writes, "I took the task by decades and decided to go after solid and entertaining stories by regular and significant contributors, stories that reflected the time in which they were written and the best work being produced in that decade." To this end, Sullivan has collected an astounding array of talent, from early works by John Dickson Carr, Margery Allingham, Anthony Boucher, and Ngaio Marsh in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, to later selections by Patricia Highsmith, Robert Bloch, Ruth Rendell, Donald E. Westlake, and Simon Brett that have appeared over the past three decades. Correction: Eleanor Sullivan, the author of Twice Dead, is alive and writing in St. Louis. See Eleanor Sullivan, the editor of Fifty Best Mysteries, passed away in 1991. This corrects the back page of the book and the entry in the Carroll & Graf imprint section of the Avalon Publishing Group catalogue.
