Grace Livingston Hill was the originator of the "Christian Romance" genre that's so popular today. As a young woman, Grace aspired to be an artist and went to art school. If you look closely, many of Grace's books use real Philadelphia streets and landmarks. Grace Livingston Hill's first book was a children's story, "The Esselstynes". Lo, Michael" was set at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, where Grace taught physical education in the 1890's.

Another novel of mystery and romance from Grace Livingston Hill.
Well, sort of. Perhaps more Heinlein, if you think of "Waldo" and "Magic Incorporated."
These are the collected investigations of Lord Darcy, investigator and general trouble-shooter for the Angevin Monarchy in the latter half of the 20th Century. It's not quite OUR 20th Century, you see. Richard the Lionheart recovered from that near-fatal crossbow bolt, and went on to shore up an Anglo-French Empire which is still a or perhaps the world power. So an alternate worlds, story, and a good one. And one of the features of this alternate world is that the effort which in our world went into physical sciences and medicine went into codifying the rules of magic--which read a lot like THE GOLDEN BOUGH. Darcy's "Watson" is thus a forensic sorcerer.
But within those rules, it's a set of fair play mysteries. You are given sufficient clues to solve every mystery--if you're clever enough. And if your memory for classic mystery stories is good enough, you're in for another treat, because a number of these settings and supporting characters will be familiar to you. Murder on an eastward-bound luxury train perhaps? A fat investigator who hates to leave his red leather chair and do his own investigating? These and many others await you. Enjoy!
This is a collection of all the Lord Darcy stories (which have appeared over the years in various magazines and anthologies). All of the stories are the British 'puzzle mystery' type -- murders inside locked rooms and so forth. Like the Sherlock Holmes stories, the detective solves the mysteries using deduction and the available clues -- although sometimes all of the clues aren't presented to the reader, or are not fully presented.

If you like Randall Garrett's other works, you'll probably like this -- although you can't read it at one sitting because there's just too much to take all in one dose.
These stories star Lord Darcy and his sourer side kick Sean. The alternate universe is one where the Plantagets kept rule of England and the Empire into the 60s. The laws of magic were discovered early (contagion--things in contact remain in contact) are prevalent. Lots of allusions and puns: for instance the head of the sourcer's guild is Sir Lyons Grandalopuhs Gray, and the Too Many magicians is something of a send up of the Before Midnight: A Nero Wolfe Mystery (Mystery Masters Series) mysteries are still popular and I highly recommend them. A very good attempt to apply the codified laws of magick to an imaginary world and an excellent series of deceive stories. Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe is paralleled by the Marquis of London and while Nero Wolfe's side kick is Archie Goodwin the Marquis' is Lord Bontriomphe. In another story a man is killed and the Kaplin-Sheinwold (bridge writers) test shows that a short club (bridge convention) could not have been used.

Overall a great read with compelling well done characters, excellent plots and nice sometimes sly humor.
The stories in this collections are classics of the "Alternative History Genre". England is the Supreme ruler of the European alliance in a world where magic is the science of the world and a benign Feudal system is in place. Enter Lord D'Arcy chief investigator for the Duke of Normandy who along with his good friend and magical associate Master Sean O Lochlainn are out fighting black magic, crime, murder and treason. Elegantly written and worth dipping into
My first Lord Darcy story was The Napoli Express, which I read in IASFM magazine many years ago.

I finally purchased this omnibus of Lord Darcy tales and was not disappointed.

So sad Randall Garrett never got to write more, with his untimely illness and death, but what we have, I treasure. Thanks Randall.

Anyone who enjoys mysteries, magic, and humour will love these tales written by a master author.
When I started reading science fiction and fantasy one of the first books I read was _Too Many Magicians_ by
Randall Garrett. Over the years I read other Lord Darcy stories that were collected in various volumes, but as time passed I lost my copies of those books. Thus, it was with great pleasure that I discovered that Baen Books had reissued all of the Lord Darcy stories, including the novel _Too Many Magicians_ in one volume.
The book is organized into three sections, the first is the Lord Darcy stories written before _Too Many Magicians_, the second section is _Too Many Magicians_ and the third is the Lord Darcy stories that were written in the 70's. Finally there is an appendix that contains the last Lord Darcy story that Garrett wrote, which details the first meeting of Lord Darcy and his sorcerer, Sean O'Lochlainn. If you like mysteries and fantasy then this book is for you.
Delightful stories of a world where magic, not science rules and England rules over a world empire including "New England' and "New France".

Delightful world building and fun clever mysteries too. Look for the little in-jokes of other famous mysteries here and there in the stories
Many mystery writers have created more memorable characters and have been better at constructing plots, but what makes Randall Garrett's work stand out is the setting. He imagines a Europe and America largely ruled by the British Empire, an Empire that never fell and has discovered magic along the way. Thus, we are treated to the adventures of a detective whose work takes place in a society totally different from our own. The existence of magic makes for an interesting x-factor in the stories. All in all, it makes for a fun read.
