THE FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN MYSTERY WRITERPhilip Schuylar Warne, the first known person of African-American descent to publish a mystery in the United States, and Howard W. Macy, whose works predate Warnes, were popular dime novel writers during the latter half of the nineteenth century. Both clever wordsmiths, Warne and Macy demonstrate their skills in the two mystery novellas featured in this book.

Published before detective fiction became a widely recognized genre, Warnes Who Was Guilty? (1881) and Macys The Mystery of Sea-Eagle Tavern (1872) will keep readers guessing until both stories startling conclusions.In her introduction, editor and popular culture literature scholar Marlena E. Bremseth offers another startling conclusion. Her detective work has unearthed compelling evidence that Philip S. Warne was, in actuality, a pseudonym of Howard W. Macy.
