A short biography of Ngaio Marsh, 4 Roderick Alleyn short stories, a couple of free standing short stories and a radio play Dame Marsh did in the late 70s. It's a short but interesting collection. I'm not terrifically fond of reading plays, but it was an interesting story. The Alleyn one I found myself enjoying more than I expected; really the person it introduces us to was Marsh herself, and there could be no better company.

Collected Short Fiction of Ngaio Marsh. The Short Cases Of Roderick Alleyn3.

One of Ngaio Marsh's most ingenious novels. The April Fool's Day had been a roaring success for all, it seemed – except for poor Mr Cartell who had ended up in the ditch – for ever. Then there was the case of Mr Percival Pyke Period's letter of condolence, sent before the body was found – not to mention the family squabbles. Pagan revelry and morris dancing in the middle of a very cold winter set the scene for one of Ngaio Marsh's most fascinating murder mysteries. When the pesky Anna Bünz arrives at Mardian to investigate the rare survival of folk-dancing still practised there, she quickly antagonizes the villagers.

This is an eclectic collection of Ngaio Marsh's short stories. Some feature Inspector Alleyn, others are independent. One, a never-been-solved true crime case, was of little interest to me. Anyone could have recounted it, and there was really no place for Marsh to put her mark on it. The most notable is apparently a story called "Morepork," involving a family camping in the remote New Zealand forest. I was more taken by the Alleyn stories. "Death on the Air" is classic Alleyn style. "Chapter and Verse" is also quite good. This is not a good place for those who have no experience with Marsh to start. Her novels are better.

I read Marsh mostly to remind myself of how things were in those days in England and to improve my vocabulary. Her tales, like Agitha Christie's are a bit contrived. I expect that.

Below her usual writing. A few must have been sketches for later novels. Otherwise no problems.
