About the Author

Gilbert Keith Chesterton, (29 May 1874 – 14 June 1936) was an English writer whose prolific and diverse output included philosophy, ontology, poetry, plays, journalism, public lectures and debates, literary and art criticism, biography, Christian apologetics, and fiction, including fantasy and detective fiction. Chesterton has been called the "prince of paradox". Time magazine, in a review of a biography of Chesterton, observed of his writing style: "Whenever possible Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, allegories—first carefully turning them inside out."

Chesterton's most enduring fictional character, the amateur detective known as Father Brown, was featured in five books containing a total of forty nine mystery stories. Three more, never included in the popular anthologies, can be found in the book "Father Brown, Lost and Found" available here.

I've long enjoyed the wonderful mysteries G.K. Chesterton wrote for his character "Father Brown," and have read the five "Father Brown" mystery books many times, but never suspected the existence of these stories the editor reasonably calls "lost." Anyone who enjoys Chesterton or the many writers he influenced, from Dorothy Sayers to C.S. Lewis, will enjoy these delicious little mysteries.
