This was the first appearance of The Third Bullet. An abridged version was later published in the January 1948 issue of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine. A hardback edition titled The Third Bullet and Other Stories of Detection was published in 1954 as by John Dickson Carr. The abridged version is also used in the hardback collection. The original 1937 text was restored for the collection Fell and Foul Play.
