KIRKUS REVIEW

Anthology of short stories, that do not emphasize detection wholly, for there are ghost stories and tales of the supernatural, a fantasy, adventure yarns, one historical piece and narratives of revenge...Some good names, -- Carl Carmer, Vincent Starrett, Richard Sale, Edgar Wallace, etc. -- not a little humor, but not --all in all-cream of the jug. The George Loring Porter America's Most Famous Murder seems to be a definitive contribution to the John Wilkes Booth lore, a real Lincolniana item.
