Ellery Queen is both a fictional character and a pseudonym used by two American cousins, Frederick Dannay (19051982) and Manfred B. Lee (19051971), to write detective fiction. In a successful series of novels that covered 42 years, Ellery Queen was not only the name of the author, but also that of the detective-hero of the stories. Movies, radio shows, and television shows have been based on their works. The two, particularly Dannay, were also responsible for co-founding and directing Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, generally considered as one of the most influential English crime fiction magazines of the last fifty years.
