Drawing on the rich holdings of the British Library, these anthologies collect stories—many of them rarities—primarily from the early to mid-20th century. A novelist and an authority on the Golden Age of Detective Fiction, Martin Edwards provides an overview to each book and individually introduces the authors.

From the squash court to the golf links, the football pitch to the swimming pool and the race course to the cricket square, no court, grounds, stadium or stand is safe from skullduggery. Entering the arena where sport clashes with crime, this spirited medley of short stories includes Julian Symons' "The Wimbledon Mystery," Celia Fremlin's "Dangerous Sport," Gladys Mitchell's "The Swimming Gala," and Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter."
