Download Epub Format ☆ Mr. Campion and Others PDF by ↠´ Margery Allingham MR CAMPION AND OTHERS, Margery Allingham1950, title used twice, first in 1939 the first eight stories in this collection are also in the 1939 collection but this edition also has five different stories Nice, but not great Three and one half stars Note The others in the title actually refer to the stories in the 1939 edition that were not in this edition they were NOT Campion stories this 1950 edition appears to have taken all the Campion stories from the 1939 edition, and added several Campion stories, most from MR CAMPION, CRIMINOLOGIST The title is, therefore, misleading, at least in this edition, since this has only Campion stories In both the 1939 and 1950 editions date when first published 1937 04 The Widow neat little scam tale involving some brandy, A Reputable Firm, and a lonely hotel rather sweet in A very solid collection of a Baker s dozen means 13 never knew it of mr Campions exploits.
These were meaty unpardonable expression ,I am sure than other Campion short stories I read in other collections.
Most rely on Mr Campions not so respectable associations made in his youth but all are very enjoyable all the same and contains very neat twists and con tricks.
While the stories do not have the multilayered needlework of the longer novels ,they still contain the same engaging witticism and interesting characterization.
Since I have already read all but 3 of her Campion novels,I can t help but notice certain reusage of ideas used in these stories later on in her novels as subplots.
There is one story here The Definite Article , that has an alter ego The Black Tent but to A fun little set of mystery stories, mostly from the 1930s They prompt some ruminations on the genre and period First off, I think Margery Allingham was at her best an excellent writer, albeit not one whose solutions to mysteries always follow the rules Second, I think Allingham and Dorothy Sayers generally wrote memorable novels than short stories their novels have depth and complexity, generally succeeding as both genre fiction and lasting literature, while their short stories show much evidence of having been written to please a magazine audience The stories here, in fact, don t bear an enormous resemblance to Allingham s novels apart from the use of Albert Campion and Stanislaus Oates Despite the use of these characters, the tales actually make me

A frivolous collection of mostly early 1930s Albert Campion stories that would have originally appeared in publications like The Strand Magazine The stories are filled with authentic period flavor and are well written and great fun a treat for Allingham enthusiasts and fans of golden age British detective stories but they re not very substantive However, unlike some of the other Allingham short story collections with Mr Campion s name in the title that actually have little to do with that gentleman, this one really is mostly Campion.
A mixed bag of detective stories featuring society sleuth Albert Campion Allingham fell into a bit of a formula with sweet lung things needing help from Uncle Albert.
In spite of the stories repetitiveness, I enjoyed this collection than the two Campion novels I read Allingham is enjoyable to read her prose fluid, her characters likeable but she is simply not very good at writing mysteries Each of these stories relies on an insanely improbable coincidence Campion happens to have seen something related to the crime the night before, or happens to know someone involved , and none of them gives you enough information to come even close to figuring out the mystery on your own Somehow this is less problematic for me in short story format, however This is also from a bit later in her career, so perhaps she had also fully fleshed out her characterization of Campion and I responded to that I do plan to keep going with the series, as I ha Synopsis a collection of thirteen short stories about Campion A few others which are non Campion are included.
