Fiction, Mystery, Short Stories

This is a collection of classically styled mysteries, ranging from the Sherlock Holmes blue carbuncle story that seems to show up in every Christmas mystery collection to the mystery which you can solve yourself through extensive knowledge (in this case, of chess.) If the classical style is to your taste, you can track this one down, but I am personally more interested in the lunacy that has marked certain authors over the last few decades.
