The Armchair Detective Book of Lists
edited by Edward Strosser
The Armchair Detective, New York. 1989. Trade paperback. 266 pages. (5½ X 8½). Most of the listings are taken up by information on the Edgar Awards. Other lists are provided by Ellery Queen, James Sandoe, H. R.F. Keating, Otto Penzler, and Robin Winks. A number of favorite authors were asked to pick their ten favorite mystery books. The printing seems to be from a typewriter, and not typeset.
(Revised Second Edition). Trade paperback. 267 pages. (5½ X 8½). Lots of listings having to do with mystery writers and their works. A number of prominent authors provide their lists of favorites.
