Summary

Welcome to The Fourth Mystery MEGAPACK®! This time we have a stellar lineup for your reading pleasure, drawing stories from a wide variety of sources -- including not only the traditional mystery magazines (such as Ellery Queen's and Alfred Hitchcock's), but also their less-well-known rivals (remember The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Magazine? Keyhole Detective?). Some are from science fiction magazines (mysteries can appear anywhere!) and some are from mainstream sources, by authors not normally associated with the mystery field. Edgar Rice Burroughs is most famous for Tarzan of the Apes, and Johnston McCulley is best known as the creator of Zorro, for example. And, of course, we have some series entries -- "The African Fish Mystery," by James Holding, is part of his Leroy King series (a sendup of Ellery Queen), and John Gregory Betancourt's "Pit and the Princess" is part of his Peter "Pitbull" Geller series. And, of course, we’ve featured the adventures of McCulley's antihero Thubway Tham in previous volumes of this series... Much great reading awaits you!
