Blurb: 
"A DOZEN MASTERPIECES OF MYSTERY, MURDER, AND UNEARTHLY DETECTION! Every month, the Black Widowers convene for sumptuous food, fine wine, and a cosmically baffling mystery. Attended by Henry, the all-knowing waiter, these gentle rogues ponder such imponderables as: -- the one-syllable middle name that represents what every schoolboy knows, yet doesn't -- a murder by solar eclipse very far out in space -- a Soviet spy's dying message utilizing a Scrabble set and a newspaper sports page -- a satanic cult leader's Martian connection -- a computer criminal's strange equation of Christmas and Halloween -- an ancient symbol that provides the key to a woman's mysterious disappearance -- Dip into these wonderfully wizardly concoctions of surprising murder and Asimovian logic that have delighted readers of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine."
