John Dickson Carr
John Dickson Carr (November 30, 1906 – February 27, 1977) was an American author of detective stories and magic buff. He also published under the pen names Carter Dickson, Carr Dickson and Roger Fairbairn.
He is generally regarded as one of the greatest writers of so-called "Golden Age" mysteries, complex, plot-driven stories in which the puzzle is paramount. Carr was a master of the locked room mystery, in which a detective solves apparently impossible crimes.
In 1950, his biography of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle brought Carr a Special Edgar Awards from the Mystery Writers of America.
