Dr. Richard Kellogg, professor emeritus of psychology at Alfred State, is the author of a short story appearing in the most recent issue of The Digest Enthusiast, a bi-annual journal published by Larque Press. The Digest Enthusiast contains book reviews, author interviews, and original fiction.

Kellogg's contribution is a mystery titled “Fencer's Document Caper.” The adventure, which involves the illegal sale of fraudulent documents, is based upon the Spenser detective stories created by the late Robert B. Parker (1932-2010).  The author notes that Spenser, a private investigator based in Boston, has become one of the most iconic characters in the world of mystery fiction. Actor Robert Urich (1946-2002) played the detective in a series of television programs from 1985 to 1988, which were based on the Spenser novels.

Dr. Kellogg writes frequently about mystery fiction and is the author of four books about legendary detective Sherlock Holmes. He is the creator of the Barry Baskerville series of mysteries for children.  The most recent book in the series, available on the Amazon website, is titled “Barry Baskerville's Blue Bicycle” (Airship 27, 2016).
