Murder and mystery have been the staple of literature and films for years. This anthology of short stories will thrill and entertain you. Some will also make you laugh out loud. Others will stop and make you think.
Think of this murder mystery short story anthology as a book version of appetizers or starters, hors d’oeuvre, meze, or antipasti. It can be read as fillers between books or, as is the case in some countries, as a bookish meze – in its own right.
These stories come from an international cast of authors; some with bestselling books, others are emerging or new talents. Their roots, cultures, and life experiences are as diverse as their writing styles.
But one thing binds them together: they know how to tell a story.
There’s murder mystery styles and locations to suit all tastes: detective fiction, serial killers, scifi, histfic, Paris, LA, England, the Caribbean, The Great Lakes, and more in an exquisite exposition of the art of short story telling.
The eleven authors who have contributed to the anthology are:
- Stephen Bentley
- Greg Alldredge
- Kelly Artieri
- Brenda Mohammed
- L. Lee Kane
- Michael Spinelli
- Sansriti Johri
- Robbie Cheadle
- Kay Castaneda
- Justin Bauer
- Aly Locatelli
Each author introduces his or her stories and the theme that lies behind them.By the time you finish the book, you will agree the result is a mesmerizing murder mystery mash-up.
I had a great time writing my stories and an even better time collaborating with a great bunch of talented writers and downright good people.
I am so pleased I posted about seeking submissions a while back. It’s been a wonderful adventure with like-minded people.
