Fiction River Special Edition: Crime

Edited by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

In what promises to be the mystery anthology of 2014, Fiction River Special #1 Crime features stories from the biggest names in mystery. From a twisted tale of greed by masterful writer Kate Wilhelm to a dark tale of murder and betrayal by Shamus-award winner Brendan DuBois, Crime will cover the entire gamut of the mystery genre—cozy to noir. New York Times bestselling author Julie Hyzy joins Edgar-award winner Doug Allyn and several others to create one of the strongest (and most diverse) anthologies of the season.

“Fiction River: Crime edited by Kristine Kathryn Rusch leads off with strong new tales by three familiar EQMM contributors: Doug Allyn with a gangster whodunnit, Steve Hockensmith with a con game story, and Brendan DuBois with a fresh variation on the old brothers-who-took-different-paths ploy. A sampling of other contents, including experimental short-shorts by Melissa Yi and M. Elizabeth Castle and a clever turn on the greedy-relatives-want-inheritance by Kate Wilhelm, suggest high quality throughout.”
