Summary

Corinna Chapman, talented baker and reluctant investigator, is trying to do nothing at all on her holiday. Her gorgeous Daniel is only intermittently at her side (he's tracking down a multi-thousand dollar corporate theft). Jason, her baking offsider, has gone off to learn how to surf. And Kylie and Goss are fulfilling their lives' ambition auditioning for a soapie. But quiet refl ection doesn't seem to suit Corinna. She's bored. So she accepts an offer from a caterer friend to bake for the film set of the soapie in which Kylie and Goss have parts. Soon complications that could only happen to Corinna ensue, involving cakes, sabotage, nursery rhymes, and a tiger named Tabitha.
 
Meanwhile, on the other side of town, a young woman is being unmercifully bullied by her corporate employers - who spend a lot of time cooking the books....

    E. Hoffmann Price was one of the "Weird Tales Circle" that included H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and Clark Ashton Smith. In fact, he was the only person to meet both Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft in person.
    The 14 stories collected here span multiple genres and multiple decades: detective, western, adventure, and fantasy. The one thing they have in common (aside from some mildly titillating content required by the "Spicy" pulp magazines) is the sure voice of a born storyteller. Once you start reading an E. Hoffmann Price story, you won’t put it down. The introduction by Darrell Schweitzer, which leads off the collection, provides a lot more information on Ed’s work for the "Spicy" magazines...though quite tame by modern standards, they were considered risque in their day.
    Included in this volume are:
    INTRODUCTION, by Darrell Schweitzer
    SATAN'S DAUGHTER
    PIT OF MADNESS
    THE WALKING DEAD
    EVERY MAN A KING
    REVOLT OF THE DAMNED

    It is October 1940 and at Oxford the Full Term has just begun. Robert Warner, up and coming playwright known for his experimental approach, has chosen an Oxford repertory theater for the premiere of his latest play, Metromania. Together with his cast he comes to Oxford to rehearse a week before the opening, but Warner's troupe is a motley group of actors among whom is the beautiful but promiscuously dangerous Yseut Haskell . She causes quite a stir with her plots, intrigues and love triangles. When she is found shot dead in the college room of a young man who is infatuated with her, everyone is puzzled and worried –most of the actors have had a reason to get rid of the femme fatale and few have alibis. 
        
      The police are at loss for answers and are ready to proclaim the incident as suicide, but Gervase Fen, an Oxford don and professor of literature, who thrives off solving mysteries, is ready to help. 
        
      The Case of the Gilded Fly, first published in 1944, is Edmund Crispin's debut novel and also the first Gervase Fen Mystery.
