Burgess, Gelett: The Master of Mysteries (1912); v1; 5 Jan 2022

Twenty four short stories of occult detective Astro the Seer. The book was published in 1912, without an author's name. However, the introduction contained a discussion of ciphers, and several stories included acrostics; an astute reader could work out that the first letters of all 24 stories gave the author's name; and an even more astute reader could work out that the last letters of all 24 stories contained an author's comment.

The book came with some illistrations, but the artist/s are still in copyright, so their work has been omitted.

Introduction
1: Missing John Hudson
2: The Stolen Shakespeare
3: The Macdougal Street Affair
4: The Fanshawe Ghost
5: The Denton Boudoir Mystery
6: The Lorsson Elopement
7: The Calendon Kidnaping Case
8: Miss Dalrymple’s Locket
9: Number Thirteen
10: The Trouble With Tulliver
11: Why Mrs. Burbank Ran Away
12: Mrs. Selwyn’s Emerald
13: The Assassins’ cClub
14: The Luck of the Merringtons
15: The Count’s Comedy
16: Priscilla’s Presents
17: The Heir to Soothoid
18: The Two Miss Mannings
19: Van Asten’s Visitor
20: The Middlebury Murder
21: Vengeance of the Pi Rho Nu
22: The Lady in Taupe
23: Mrs. Stellery’s letters
24: Black Light
