Four short stories from John Thorndyke’s Cases and four from The Singing Bone, as well as the novella version of The Mystery of 31 New Inn from Adventure, all dated from 1909-1912. I prefer the longer length Dr. Thorndyke stories, so the novella seems to work best here. Some clever stories, though, and an insistence of Thorndyke to stick to the scientific method and facts. Not sure how he and Maigret would get along.
