Classic history.

This is one no mystery reader should be without. It's 500+ pages of writing about detective fiction, first published during the Golden Age, and sort of a FEDERALIST PAPERS/ANTI-FEDERALIST PAPERS of the genre. It contains, for example, Knox's "Detective Story Decalogue" and the Detection Club Oath along with Chandler's "Simple Art of Murder" and Edmund Wilson's "Who Cares Who Killed Roger Ackroyd?" GK Chesterton's "A Defense of Detective Stories" is included, as well as John Dickson Carr's "Locked-Room Lecture" from THREE COFFINS and Anthony Boucher on "The Ethics of the Mystery Novel." Just remember to buy two copies--because if you loan one to a friend, you'll never see it again.
