Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Trade paperback. David Laurence Wilson has unearthed thirteen more stories by Gunard Hjertstedt—most famously known by his pseudonym Day Keene —and has written an introduction putting Hjertstedt’s life and work into perspective. Included in this volume is ‘Ashes’, Hjertstedt’s first published story which appeared in a 1930 issue of '10-Story Book' edited by Harry Stephen Keeler. The other stories are culled from issues of 'Detective Fiction Weekly', 'Detective Tales', 'Dime Mystery' and 'New Detective' published between 1931 and 1950. These stories show the ongoing strength and invention of Gunard Hjertstedt’s writing and his ability to transcend hackneyed formulas and continue to produce convincing and rivetting fiction for readers of yore....and of today!
