Ellery Queen, Editor – Masterpieces of Mystery: The Supersleuths Revisited


After I posted my last entry, I realised Ellery Queen Editor published a series of books, under the collective title Masterpieces of Mystery in fifteen volumes, beautifully edited.

You can check here the contents of each volume. In particular, the Supersleuths revisited are:

The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle” by A. Conan Doyle
The Double Clue” by Agatha Christie
“The Dauphin’s Doll” by Ellery Queen
“The Cop Killer” by Rex Stout
“The Case of the Irate Witness” by Erle Stanley Gardner
The Most Obstinate Man in Paris” by Georges Simenon
The Murders in the Rue Morgue” by Edgar Allan Poe
“A Man Called Spade” by Dashiell Hammett
“The Blast of the Book” by G. K. Chesterton
“A Matter of Taste” by Dorothy L. Sayers
“The Adopted Daughter” Melville Davisson Post
“The Locked Room” by John Dickson Carr
“The Bearded Lady” by Ross Macdonald
“Murder Under the Mistletoe” by Margery Allingham

Which I will add to my reading list. Judging from the ones I’ve read, they will certainly be worthwhile. Stay tuned.
