Ellin, Stanley - Mystery Stories

New York, Simon & Schuster, 1956. First edition. How many authors can claim that Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine created a special award---for his very first short story?  Collected here for the first time, Stanley Ellin's stories are certainly among the best the genre has ever seen. Near fine with pages browned and some slight wear to DJ. $40.00.
