From Little Acorns…
Grow the works of the extraordinary mystery writer, John Dickson Carr. This collection of the early works of Carr includes Grand Guignol, “The New Canterbury Tales,” and eight other works of detection, mystery, and horror by the undisputed master of the locked room mystery.
Many of these stories have not appeared since their original publication and cover the range of mystery to horror.
Dan Napolitano, noted Carr collector and authority, introduces this collection and annotates each story, providing detailed information on the origins of Carr’s works along with details on how each story would be used later in Carr’s career.
