John Dickson Carr : the man who explained miracles by Douglas G Greene( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Dickson Carr made his reputation through the art of bafflement. Creator of such legendary sleuths as the boisterous Sir Henry Merrivale and the imposing Dr. Gideon Fell, he claimed the "locked-room" puzzle as his own and virtually threw away the key for all time." "Now Douglas G. Greene has brought forth, after more than a decade of research, the definitive biography of this unique writer. In it we see how, starting with the earliest efforts of his small-town Pennsylvania boyhood, Carr was destined to gain fame as a storyteller. Moreover, John Carr (who also wrote as Carter Dickson) knew instinctively that he had an affinity for "impossible" crimes and quite precociously set about exploring this phenomenon, the techniques of which he was to perfect over the course of seventy novels, along with dozens of short stories and radio plays." "The history of the mystery genre in the middle of the twentieth century is here as well - for Carr's life spanned two continents and the writing cultures of both America and Britain. His friends and connections form a Who's Who of Golden Age giants: Dorothy L. Sayers, Ellery Queen, and Agatha Christie, among others. John Dickson Carr: The Man Who Explained Miracles is a portrait of a shining era in the literature of imaginative crime and of the complex man who was one of its towering figures."--Jacket

I believe in Sherlock Holmes : early fan fiction from the very first fandom( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Arthur Conan Doyle killed off his fictional sleuth in the 1893 story "The Final Problem," distraught readers resorted to producing their own versions of Sherlock Holmes's adventures, thus inventing the now-common genre of fan fiction. These tales by famous and lesser-known devotees offer the best of early Sherlockian tributes and parodies. Editor Douglas G. Greene's informative Introduction provides background on each of the stories and their authors. The collection begins with Robert Barr's "The Great Pegram Mystery," a satire that appeared less than a year after the very first Holmes short story. Thirteen additional tales include Bret Harte's "The Stolen Cigar Case," praised by Ellery Queen as "one of the most devastating parodies" ever written about the Baker Street investigator; Mark Twain's "A Double-Barrelled Detective Story," featuring Holmes's nephew, Fetlock Jones; and "The Sleuths," by O. Henry, in which a bumbling New York private eye struggles to outshine a rival"--Publisher's website
