Editorial Reviews

Published since 1941, Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine is America's oldest and most celebrated crime-fiction publication. "The best mystery magazine in the world, bar none," states Stephen King. Featured in its pages are short stories by the world’s leading writers of suspense. The full range of the genre is covered, from the cozy to the hardboiled, the historical to the contemporary—including police procedurals, P.I. stories, psychological suspense, locked-room and impossible-crime tales, classical whodunits, and urban noir. EQMM stories include scores of winners of the Edgar, Agatha, Shamus, Anthony, Derringer, Macavity, Barry, Arthur Ellis, and Robert L. Fish awards. Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine is home to many bestselling authors, including Joyce Carol Oates, Chuck Hogan, Jan Burke, Lawrence Block, and Marcia Muller.

The Kindle Edition of Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine contains most articles found in the print edition, but will not include all images. For your convenience, issues are auto-delivered wirelessly to your Kindle at the same time the print edition hits the newsstand. The digital subscription consists of 10 issues per year, with double issues in March/April and September/October.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another reason I'm glad I bought a Kindle May 22, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition
As a mystery/thriller fan, it was a great treat to see Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine offered on the Kindle. My Kindle edition of the initial issue offered included 9 short stories, including a great Lawrence Block "Keller" story and a new English translation of a wonderful Japanese mystery set in the world of the Japanese police. There was also a short review column on mystery blogs and a meaty, interesting book review column. The issue was rounded out by a nice reproduction of the print edition's cover, two cute poems (crime-oriented, of course), and announcement of the magazine's 2007 Reader Awards.

At the end of each story, one is given the option to jump back to the table of contents to select another story, but I chose to just sail right through and read the whole edition "cover to cover". That's something I never did with the print edition for some reason. I guess just seeing one nicely presented page at a time on the Kindle versus seeing one big intimidating digest all at once makes all the difference for us readers who battle an occasional lazy streak.

I'll likely check out one or two other Dell magazines offered on the Kindle. It was a nice diversion from the regular reading of my Kindle novel and news blogs to enjoy a piece of short fiction every day or so (I made this first issue last about two weeks). But, whatever other Dell titles I end up trying out, Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine is likely to be the one ongoing, regular visitor to my Kindle each month.

Note: Amazon frequently updates the presentation the functionality of Kindle blogs and periodicals, so as this review gets older, it may no longer accurately describe the current version of this product.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Kindle Edition costs more than the print edition January 27, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine is a tip-top magazine (assuming, of course, that you like mysteries). Short stories from the industry's brightest talents as well as helpful reviews. However, much as I like Kindle editions, one of the things that I like most about them is that they're usually significantly less expensive than printed editions. For some reason, the Kindle edition of the Ellery Queen Mystery magazine is priced higher than the print edition, which has full color glossy cover art and interesting advertisements that are not reproduced in the Kindle edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine! May 12, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition
I was very excited to find out that Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine is now available for the Kindle. I love the magazine, but often I find that I get behind on reading it. My dogs ate my last one. Literally. I've been looking for more content for the Kindle, because it is so handy to carry with me in the car.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Mag, Disappointing price on Kindle September 18, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition
I had never heard of this magazine before so I must give praise to Amazon's Kindle for bringing this magazine to my attention. If you love mysteries you will enjoy your subscription to this magazine.

The only issue I have is the fact that I can purchase the magazine for $.50US less a month ($6.00US annually) which I could spend on another book for my Kindle. If it weren't for the price difference on the kindle version, I would say this was a 5 star purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't like the new format. October 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have subscribed to EQMM Kindle Edition for almost 2 years. Enjoyed it very much. Suddenly it's in a new format -- the print is so small that I can't read it, even with my reading glasses! The Kindle feature that allows one to select font sizes is disabled in this new format. I guess I'll cancel my subscription.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hallelujah! An Index at Last September 9, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
My only complaint in the past concerning EQMM was its lack of a decent index and the inability to "toggle" from one story to the next. With this month's issue, those complaints have been resolved. It is now as user-friendly as my other newspapers and magazines. With regard to all the complaints concerning price, do you seriously think that $ 2.99 per month is unreasonable? You'll spend that much in gas driving to and from your local bookstore to "save" the fifty cents on the cover price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great mag, poor pricing. January 22, 2010
By jb
Format:Kindle Edition
I love this magazine, but as others have noted, it's more expensive in E-version than it is in paper version. That's just not right, and it's apparently Amazon who is setting the pricing, NOT the publisher (I wrote and inquired).

I'd buy the E-version for a better price. Until then I'll stay with the "dead tree" version

4.0 out of 5 stars Far more consistent than the sister publication June 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read both Ellery Queen and Alfred Hitchcock magazines, and I greatly prefer the former. Consistently strong entries from Clark Howard, Doug Allyn, and other short story powerhouses really make this magazine a pleasure. I travel for business, and short stories are a perfect entertainment - well-written enough to really hold my interest, but short enough to complete during the shorter periods of time I have available for reading. And, I particularly love that this publication is now available for the Kindle. Fantastic.
