Murder by the Book offers a stellar lineup of internationally famous mystery authors whose stories take you into the worlds of publishing, book collectors, rare book dealers, libraries, and last but certainly not least, the writers themselves. Literary inspirations for murder range from Shakespeare and Jane Austen to Dickens and Dashiell Hammett, whether in the form of rare books, missing manuscripts, or in parody and pastiche.
This volume of bookishly entertaining tales includes a combination of classics and new work by such varied talent as Dorothy L. Sayers, Lawrence Block and James Thurber.
From the pages of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, Cynthia Manson has collected a library of mystery stories for a delightful combination of bibliophilia and homicide.
