Penguin Books, New York. 1978. Trade paperback. 390 pages. (4 X 7). Preface by William D. McElroy. Introduction by Martin N. Chamberlain. Excellent collection of essays on mystery fiction subjects. Briney provides a very good bibliography of mystery fiction reference works. Now out-of-date, but still interesting.
