Trawling in Newspaper archives I gradually accumulate waifs and strays in the form of short stories. Often these are uncollected in book form, or are in collections so obscure that they can't be found. A few of those waifs and strays appear here, plus an assortment of crime/detective stories from other collections, some of which are on these forums, to make up a volume and give those waifs and strays a home of sorts.

(This is now V2, as I accidentally included a Max Pemberton story in V1, which still has a couple of years to go in copyright. I have substituted an A E W Mason short.)
