Book Description Carroll & Graf Pub, N.Y., 1990. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st US edition. Fine in unclipped dust jacket with protective mylar cover. "The crimes serving as the basis for several of the 15 stories in this satisfying collection will be immediately recognizable. But while the details of Angela Carter's "Fall River Axe Murders" and Arthur Conan Doyle's "J. Habakuk Jephson's Statement" are familiar, their telling still stirs the imagination. Moving chronologically to the present, and by such widely varied stylists as O. Henry, Boucher, Sitwell, Borges, and Ellison, these stories also range from coziness to horror. Only "The Trailer Murder Mystery" by Abraham Lincoln seems out of place, without imaginative flow and emotion. Yet perhaps justifying its inclusion, John Dickson Carr's "The Black Cabinet," based on the assassination of Lincoln, neatly wraps up the collection." -- Library Journal. Book.
