KIRKUS REVIEW

A evil and its most expert practitioners presents the best which has appeared in Mystery Magazine for more than a decade and it's both a sumptuous and collection. Few will have forgotten Stanley Ellin's fiendish of the House or Q. Patrick's Love Comes to Miss Lucy, less well known, Zenna Headerson's touching What, . Helen McCloy's chilling The Other Side of the Old reliabics include Nicholas Blake and John Dickson Carr, Roy Vickers and Clayton Rawson, Philip MacDonald and David Alexander, and of course Ellery Queen himself; old familiars Charteris' Saint, Margery Allingham's Mr. Campion, James Yaffe's Mom; and less expected in this genre. Faulkner, La Farge, Mark Van Doren. Others- but not all- Eleazar Parker Johns, Edgar Pangborn, Hugh Pentecost, Mirian Allen DeFord, A.H.Z. Carr, complete a collection for both pick-up reading and permanent entertainment.
