Detection Medley

Detection Medley was published in the UK in 1939; it appeared the following year in the US under the title Line Up. John Rhode edited the book and supplied a foreword, while A.A. Milne, himself a member of the Club, contributed a short introduction. Although most of the contributions – a number of which had been published previously - were short stories, there were also articles by G.K. Chesterton, J.J. Connington, R.Austin Freeman and Milward Kennedy.
