since this is the main Q & A thread I hope no-one minds its not really about the anime... but what are some recommendations for other good mysteries? I'm listening to a BBC Sherlock Holmes radio drama, which is entertaining, but not too mysterious... I'm also thinking of getting "And then there were none" since this is one of the main related works, but in the end of that do they ever find out who U.N.Owen was, or was it left open for people to speculate?

The solution of "And Then There Were None" is revealed, yes.

I think The Crooked Hinge is also a popular recommendation for Umineko fans looking to get into classic Golden Age stuff, since it features an impossible murder with trappings of witchcraft.

also, in Knox's second:

...And here I venture to think there is a limitation about Mr. Chesterton's Father Brown stories. He nearly always tries to put us off the scent by suggesting that the crime must have been done by magic; and we know that he is too good a sportsman to fall back upon such a solution.
Is the Father Brown magic like Uminekos "magic", or more like Scooby Doo's "magic"?

For people interested in Golden Age mysteries, I'll recommend:

_The Three Coffins_ and _The Nine Wrong Answers_ by John Dickson Carr.

Three Coffins has, IMO, red text done right; right at the beginning, the author states that several witnesses are not deliberately lying, but are describing everything as they saw it. It also has two solid impossible crimes. (In the first, one of those witnesses testifies that he saw the victim let a masked man into his room. The room's one door was under his continuous observation from that moment until they broke in. When they did enter, the victim was lying on the ground with a close-range gunshot wound to the chest. The window was open, but outside was untouched snow as far as the eye could see. In the second crime, three such witnesses testified that they heard a voice shout "The second bullet is for you.", followed by a gunshot. When they turned around, they found the second victim with a close-range gunshot wound, with only his own footprints in the snow; a gun with two bullets fired, matching the two bullets in the victims, was also nearby. The first victim regained consciousness the next day, managing to say "How did he get out of that room?" before expiring.)

_The Nine Wrong Answers_ managed to pull off a good action story, while still managing to answer the mysteries it posed. The footnotes pulled off red text / blue text right.

Well, that hasn't been adapted into anime form. You're going to have to bring that to the EP8 discussion thread.

More like Umineko's, although lower key and it's really only in a few stories. One story, "The Mistake of the Machine", deals with a lie detector and shows (like the Red Truth) how a statement can be absolutely true and still be misleading.

Other suggestions for Golden Age detective stories: Agatha Christie of course, especially the Mousetrap, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Ellery Queen.

General information on Golden Age writers:
http://mikegrost.com/classics.htm (main page)
http://mikegrost.com/vandine.htm
http://mikegrost.com/coles.htm
http://mikegrost.com/carr.htm
http://mikegrost.com/chris1.htm
http://mikegrost.com/queen1.htm

BTW, there was an Ellery Queen TV series in the 70s; it was recently released on DVD. Only one episode (The Mad Tea Party) was actually based on a real EQ story, though; another episode (Too Many Suspects) was based on a novel ghostwritten under the Queen byline.

That's really not a certain matter. You should better redirect your question to the spoiler speculation thread or whichever episode you're at to listen to the various interpretations.
