Free Ebook Online – Writing Mystery Stories

I’ve put up an ebook on writing (murder) mystery stories.  It’s called The Technique of the Mystery Story.  Written by Carolyn Wells in 1913.  Gives advice for writers — what to do, what not to.  Talks about Sherlock and those guys.

On the one hand, it’s old.  So there’s no reference to modern criminology techniques, beyond fingerprinting.  On the other hand, that makes it less techno and more about puzzles and motive.  Nifty stuff.

Feel free to download it, copy it, whatever.  It’s public domain. 

Again, the link:  The Technique of the Mystery Story
