When you want the best in mysteries, look no further than the pages of The Strand Mystery Magazine. Each issue of our quarterly glossy print publication delivers gripping tales of mystery and suspense in a variety of settings (from Victorian England to turn of the century Prague to modern day England and America) by some of today's leading mystery writers including writers.  The Strand offers the best of both worlds, publishing works by literary masters such as Dashiell Hammett, Joseph Heller, James M. Cain, Mark Twain, and H.G.Wells which have never been published before. As well as new works of fiction by authors such as Alexander McCall Smith, Michael Connelly, Joseph Finder, and Jeffery Deaver.

The Strand Mystery Magazine's unsurpassed nonfiction section features illuminating articles about a wide variety of subjects, from The Great Detectives (a series which, in each issue, profiles a great detective from the Golden Age of crime & mystery writing) to a look at mysteries on trains, to profiles of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca and Patricia Highsmith's cunning and dangerous Tom Ripley. In addition to articles, we offer exclusive interviews with writers, and actors. Our reviews section examines the latest mystery offerings, Sherlock Holmes pastiches, covering books, anthologies, mystery audiobooks, and videos.
