A massive anthology of over 3000 pages. "Gigantic, very well chosen collection of stories dealing with crime and the supernatural. An excellent historical introduction on the evolution of the detective story." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1443. Sayers's introduction has become a classic in its own right, being the best short sketch of a general nature on the subject of mystery-detective fiction. Complete, decent sets of the three volumes together are very uncommon.
