Issue Description
The August 2016 issue continues our year of celebration of EQMM’s 75th anniversary with special features honoring the magazine’s illustrious former editors. We start off with “The Ten-Cent Murder” by Joseph Goodrich, a tale based on the real-life connection between Dashiell Hammett and EQMM founding editor Frederic Dannay, who solves a classical whodunit with Hammett by his side. Learn more about editor Dannay in a piece by scholar Francis M. Nevins entitled “Founding Editor At Work: Fred Dannay and EQMM,” and pick up some little known facts about Manfred B. Lee, Dannay’s partner as Ellery Queen, in “Ellery Queen’s Other Half: Manfred B. Lee in His Own Words,” by Manny’s son Rand B. Lee. In “She Did It Her Way” you’ll hear about EQMM’s second editor, Eleanor Regis Sullivan, from an author who coincidentally shares her name, Eleanor J. Sullivan. And there’s a treat in the From Our Archives section: a reprint of editor Sullivan’s Edgar-nominated story “Ted Bundy’s Father,” published under her pseudonym Ruth Graviros.

Enter the world of Cold War era professional ballet dancing in V.S. Kemanis’s moving classical whodunit “Journal Entry, Franklin DeWitt,” and climb the Andean slopes, where your climbing partners may pose as great a threat as the environment, in current Arthur Ellis Award nominee Scott Mackay’s “The Ascent.” Dave Zeltserman delivers a wry thriller in “The Caretaker of Lorne Green,” while Jonathan Moore provides a more contemplative police procedural in “A Swimmer From the Dolphin Club.” And if you like ancient history combined with heart-pounding suspense, you’re sure to enjoy “Voices in the Cistern” by William Burton McCormick, featuring Ancient Roman thief-sleuth Quintus the Clever.

The Department of First Stories showcases the gripping rural tale “A Visitor in Winter” by Julie McNeely-Kirwan, and Passport to Crime contains the Glauser Award-winning epistolary tale “Fan Mail” by Germany’s Christiane Geldemacher.
