ADVENTURES OF PHILIP MARLOWE Elements of mystery have always been represented in literature, but the detective story didn't arrive on the scene until the mid 1800's. Edgar Allan Poe's The Murders in the Rue Morgue , published in 1841, was the first. The Murder's main character, C. Auguste Dupin, was a brilliant detective who relied on superior deductive powers to solve the crime. He and his unnamed narrator companion solved this and two other mysteries. Later in the 19th century Sir Arthur...

Obsession was an early 1950s syndicated anthology of thriller and suspense programs with some of Hollywood's best radio talent. The scripts are unfortunately inconsistent, but most are good listening. Among radio collectors, this series is not well-documented, and does not appear in all radio reference directories. It was, however, a fairly big budget program. Had it appeared earlier, it might have attracted a larger audience. These copies have been verified and are in better sound than usually...

A yellow-back is a cheap fiction novel which was published in Britain in the second half of the 19th century. They were occasionally called 'mustard-plaster' novels. Developed in the 1840s to compete with the 'penny dreadful', Yellow-Backs were marketed as entertaining reading. They had brightly coloured covers, often printed by chromoxylography, that were attractive to a new class of readers, thanks to the spread of education and rail travel.
