Murder Draws a Crowd by Fredric Brown (Fredric Brown Mystery Library Volume 1)
Hardcover – Haffner Press – 2017 – 722 pages
Work has been underway for nearly four years assembling the first two volumes of THE FREDRIC BROWN MYSTERY LIBRARY. The plan is for this to be the definitive collection of Fredric Brown sans his science fiction works. Assembled in chronological order of publication, this set will contain all the short fiction (of all genres: mystery, horror, noir, western, detection, etc.) and all of Brown’s novels (again, excepting his sf works). You’ll be able to enjoy Fredric Brown at his longer lengths from The Fabulous Clipjoint and Night of the Jabberwock to The Lenient Beast and Mrs. Murphy’s Underpants.
Assisting with this effort have been Brown bibliographer Phil Stephensen-Payne and Brown biographer Jack Seabrook. This massive undertaking could not have been accomplished without their help.
