"D. H. Olson provides an excellent historical and critical introduction which sets the stories in the publishing context of their day. . . . Was the long wait for these stories to appear between covers worth it? The answer is in the affirmative!" -- J. Randolf Cox, Dime Novel Round-Up "I, for one, quite enjoyed Frost, and I'll admit to looking forward to the next collection." -- Ed Bryant, Locus It may come as a surprise to some that Donald Wandrei wrote more mysteries than all his horror, fantasy, and science fiction tales combined. D. H. Olson has assembled the first ever collection of Wandrei's ratiocinative detective I. V. Frost. Although a brilliant scientist, Frost prefers to solve most of cases through logical deduction in the traditions of Poe and Doyle. In this he is ably assisted by his beautiful and tough female assistant, Jean Moray. Contents: Introduction--D. H. Olson Frost Green Man - Creeping They Could Not Kill Him Bride of the Rats The Artist of Death Death Descending Impossible Merry-Go-Round
