Queen, Ellery Jr.

Ellery Queen is the pseudonym of cousins Frederic Dannay and Manfred B. Lee. After winning a contest for first-time mystery novelists, they collaborated from 1928 to 1971, writing over three dozen Ellery Queen novels, countless short stories, and dozens of scripts for the popular Ellery Queen radio series.

Queen, Ellery

Ellery Queen was a pen name created and shared by two cousins, Frederic Dannay (1905 1982) and Manfred B. Lee (1905 1971), as well as the name of their most famous detective. Born in Brooklyn, they spent forty-two years writing, editing, and anthologizing under the name, gaining a reputation as the foremost American authors of the Golden Age fair play mystery.Although eventually famous on television and radio, Queen s first appearance came in 1928, when the cousins won a mystery-writing contest with the book that would eventually be published as "The Roman Hat Mystery". Their character was an amateur detective who uses his spare time to assist his police inspector uncle in solving baffling crimes. Besides writing the Queen novels, Dannay and Lee cofounded "Ellery Queen s Mystery Magazine", one of the most influential crime publications of all time. Although Dannay outlived his cousin by nine years, he retired Queen upon Lee s death.
