The unequalled Edward D. Hoch has written the greatest number of short story mysteries. He's had a story published in every issue of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine since 1970. Also a master of the locked room mystery, it has been said that his brain should be donated for scientific study.

I really enjoyed these mysteries, although I only solved one corectly out of many! Yes, Edward Hoch is a great short mystery writer! I enjoy reading his short stories! This is proabaly what everyone thinks! Is it? Please answer
For what it's worth, I met Ed Hoch at the last Bouchercon in Monterey, CA. I was there as part of a panel on Florida crime fiction, but met Ed after a panel on the locked room mystery at which, as contributors to this discussion know, he excells. Delightful man. A little reserved, but very generous of time and and opinion. He always seems a little distracted, but that's probably the price one pays for having such an inventive mind. He never really stops working.
E Hoch is the best at it now, I am searching for an anthology; does one exist?
I know that Hoch has authored several "Best Of" Anthologies, featuring various authors.
