Pub. Date:
The Strand Magazine, launched in January 1891, was one of the most successful and influential popular magazines of all time. Making its mark immediately with the publication of the first Sherlock Holmes stories, the magazine continued to publish high-quality detective fiction for half a million readers until 1950. Now, in the centenary of its launch, this collection offers twenty-five classic stories of mystery and detection, all first published in the Strand. It features tales of some of the most celebrated detectives of all time--Agatha Christie's Poirot, G.K. Chesterton's Father Brown, and E.C. Bentley's Philip Trent--as well as stories from Sapper, Edgar Wallace, Somerset Maugham, Aldous Huxley, and A.E.W. Mason. And, of course, this volume would not be complete without Sherlock Holmes, who makes his appearance in three classic cases. With little-known stories by famous authors, and ingenious works by almost-forgotten writers, Detective Stories from the Strand is a treasure trove of remarkable ingenuity, guaranteed to delight all enthusiasts of crime fiction.
