“Open Letter to Queen Fans” (by Francis M. Nevins) | SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN

“Open Letter to Queen Fans” (by Francis M. Nevins) | SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN: Francis M. Nevins has distinguished himself in every area of the field of mystery and crime fiction. He’s the author of six novels and forty short stories and has won the Edgar Allan Poe Award twice for his critical work. He is widely considered one of the leading authorities on the life and work of Ellery Queen, and he authored the influential works Royal Bloodline: Ellery Queen, Author and Detective (1974) and Ellery Queen: The Art of Detection (2013). In early 2018 his first published fiction, an Ellery Queen pastiche, will be reprinted in the anthology The Misadventures of Ellery Queen, edited by Josh Pachter and Dale Andrews (from Perfect Crime Books). It is the hope of all of us at EQMM that the collection will generate new interest in the novels of Ellery Queen, most of which are available in new e-editions from Mysterious Press/Open Road.—Janet Hutchings

"Open Letter to Queen Fans"

For a second there I thought Freddy Mercury had risen from the dead.

I thought about putting "Ellery" in brackets, but I decided against it.
