Here is this year’s edition of a perennial favorite, this time edited by Sara Paretsky. There is a good selection within these pages. Just some of the featured authors include Michael Connelly, Joyce Carol Oates and Colson Whitehead. Many of the other authors were new discoveries for me. I especially enjoyed Better Austens by Susan Frith.
In addition, the book begins with two introductions. Readers get to find out what both the venerable Otto Penzler and favorite author, Sara Paretsky have to share.
I tend to gravitate to novels over short stories but sometimes a shorter read is better. For those times, there is a lot to enjoy here.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Otto Penzler Publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.
