About Us

For almost 20 years, The Strand Magazine has been America’s leading mystery magazine for readers passionate about great mysteries. Each quarterly issue delivers gripping tales of mystery and suspense—from hard-boiled detective stories to cozies—by some of the today’s most renowned mystery authors. In addition to mysteries, thriller and suspense stories, each issue of The Strand Magazine features a never-before-published story by a literary master such as John Steinbeck, Dashiell Hammett, Joseph Heller, James M. Cain, Mark Twain, Tennessee Williams, H.G. Wells, as well as new mysteries by authors such as Alexander McCall Smith, Michael Connelly, Joseph Finder, and Jeffery Deaver. The Strand also features in-depth interviews with today’s best-selling mystery authors, including David Baldacci, Mary Higgins Clark, Sandra Brown, Douglas Preston, and Harlan Coben. The Strand Magazine’s insightful review section critiques a wide range of mystery and suspense novels from the latest Sherlock Holmes pastiches to the latest mysteries and thrillers, as well as anthologies, mystery audiobooks, and videos. The last issue of The Strand Magazine included reviews of mysteries by Paula Hawkins, Thomas Perry, Laura Lippman, George Pelecanos, and Susan Hill.

The Strand Magazine’s online shop has the latest mystery books at discounted prices of up to 40% off the list price, as well as audiobooks, gifts for mystery fans, back issues, and our exclusive collection of Sherlock Holmes books imported from London.
