WEFOUNDCrime and Mystery Short Stories (Gothic Fantasy)


Here in the Reading Room you will find free Detective, Crime, and Murder Mystery stories. Some are prototypes (such as the stories about Daniel from the Apocrypha ). Others are other detectives from the great age of Detective Stories (including Father Brown, Sherlock Holmes, The Old Man in the Corner, The Thinking Machine, Max Carrados, and others). You may already be familiar with some of them, but I hope to introduce you to some that may well be new to you.

So get a nice hot cuppa (translation: get a cup of hot tea!), come and sit near the glowing embers of the fireplace (or the glowing computer screen!), and enjoy yourself!

The story from the Bible's Apocrypha features Daniel as a prototype of the classic detective. Compare this story with the Sherlock Holmes story "The Golden Pince-Nez."

Readers of short mystery fiction look for instant gratification. They're not interested in complex philosophical ideas about good and evil or the nature of the human mind. That doesn't mean, though, your imagination has no room to play. Here's how to write a successful mystery short story.

Read some mystery short stories to get the feel of the pace. Edgar Allen Poe and Arthur Conan Doyle are the masters of this genre. You can even find some of their short stories online at Project Gutenberg (see Resources.)

Decide what crime has been committed. Know the criminal's motivations by exploring his psychology. Write a detailed character sketch of the person who solves the crime, especially if it's a detective or amateur sleuth you want to build a series of stories around. Make your detective or amateur sleuth have some distinctive qualities. For instance, Sherlock Holmes was an intellectual obsessive who used cocaine and dressed a certain way.
