Rex Stout, Three Doors to Death, Dell, 1952

I read most of these collections many, many years ago, and I personally think Rex Stout was best at around 20,000 words or so. Sometimes his novels seem to run thin on plot.

Those novelettes (or novellas or whatever they are) are hard to beat, all right. Anthony Boucher preferred them to the novels, too, as I recall.
