A Family Affair, if not my least favorite, is certainly in the running. I'll have to think over the question a little, stoic; it's a good one.
(spelling error corrected)
My (Ace) edition includes the story of the book title, plus "Booby Trap". The original Farrar and Rinehart also included "Help Wanted, Male". This latter story was also published in Trouble In Triplicate.

Sounds like it is, lasergirl. Most unfair, but probably harmless, as hauntings go.
I confess, I only remember the sketchiest outlines of the (ahem) plot. (BTW, try brackets around the title, instead of parentheses, for working touchstones. :) A title should show up below 'Touchstones', to the right of the text box, if it's recognized.) Plot it Yourself didn't thrill me, even if I can't remember enough about it to gripe. ;)
This may or may not dampen my pleasure, of course. :)
Unless they are real 8o !
Have you read his fantasy/sci-fi attempts? Those, to me, were laughable, but now that I've read some of the other early sci-fi, like Edgar Rice Burroughs, I'm not so sure.
I've never even seen any Stout sci-fi books, 'tho I have heard about them. I guess it would be fun to try one or two.
These are the early Stout books I have. The Great Legend, a story from Troy, it was serialized in the All Story magazine. Under the Andes, definitely sci-fi or fantasy. A Prize for Princes, another book which was in All Story magazine, it is about a woman who is "pure evil" from the Balkans. Target Practice is a collection of short stories written for the All-Story magazine. In it is a story which is a precursor to Archie and Wolfe and Stout's first crime fiction story, "Secrets". I only remember reading Under the Andes, and I didn't care for it, though the writing gave me a giggle now and then. I may have to try the others again.
