LIST OF TITLES

The Ellery Queen works are divided in different periods. Despite this fact the lists of titles are usually presented in
several different ways. This index supports the thesis that his works should be divided in categories other than the known periods (national series - Hollywood - minimalism...).The first being those books in which the character Ellery Queen appears. This is why I've included the short stories therein and even the ghostwritten Queen novels. The four 'Drury Lane-stories', at first published under the Barnaby Ross moniker, make up the second category. The 'non-Queen' novels mostly written by ghostwriters the third with a small Barnaby Ross subsection. The next section: Tim Corrigan and Mike McCall-books and finally the juveniles written by Ellery Queen Jr. The 'real' Queen and Drury Lane stories are simply the best. All the titles are more extensively worked out in the 'Q.B.I.' section. The shortlist is presented here...
