Edward Phillips Oppenheim (1866–1946), self-styled "prince of storytellers," was an English novelist, a major and successful writer of genre fiction including thrillers. He composed during his lifetime more than a hundred novels, mostly of the suspense and international intrigue nature, as well as romances, comedies, and parables of everyday life. The sole biography of Oppenheim is Robert Standish's (pseudonym of Digby George Gerahty) Prince of Storytellers: The Life of E. Phillips Oppenheim; London: Peter Davies 1957.

Oppenheim's work possesses a unique charm all its own, featuring protagonists who delight in Epicurean meals, surroundings of intense luxury, and the relaxed pursuit of criminal practice, on either side of the law. Perhaps Oppenheim's most enduring creation is General Besserley, the protagonist of General Besserley's Puzzle Box and General Besserley's New Puzzle Box (this last volume, written in 1939, was one of Oppenheim's last works).

For most of his life, Oppenheim maintained a regular schedule of work and productivity of an almost monastic nature, despite his fondness for Monte Carlo and his love of good food and wine. Troubled in his last years by intense prostate problems, Oppenheim persevered in the creation of a series of charming, escapist novels which still hold the reader's attention today.

Oppenheim's books, including the four omnibus volumes, total 151; he published published 109 novels, of which 12 have not been published in the United States (unless in pirated editions). Several of his novels appeared under the pseudonym "Anthony Partridge."
