Rampo Edogawa
Birth: Oct. 21, 1894
Death: Jul. 28, 1965

Detective novelist and the first modern mystery writer in Japan. His real name was Taro Hirai. He was born in Nabari, Mie, Japan, and is considered "The Father of Japanese Detective Stories." Edogawa chose his pen name for an interesting reason. In the Japanese system of family name first, he is "Edogawa Rampo." He modeled himself after Edgar Allen Poe, whom many consider the inventor of detective stories. When "Edogawa Rampo" is pronounced quickly, it sounds like "Edgar Allen Poe." (bio by: Warrick L.
