COMPLETE MURDER SAMPLER

The first crime club extra, this offers 16 short stories, a variety of crime connoisseurs and their special specialties, and some material not too often in collections such as this. Leslie Charteris' Saint, Hormung's Raffles, R. Austin Freeman's Dr. Thorndyks, rank with W. W. Jacobs, John Buchan, H. P. Lovecraft, Mary Roberts Rinchart, Edmund Pearson, G.K. Chesterton, Maugham, Edgar Wallace, and the more recent Raymond Chandler and Geoffrey Household. From the abnormal to the supernatural, the intellectual sport to the physical game, this is varied to please most readers if, and it is not, comparable with the anthological amplitude of Ellery Queen.
