I love anthologies - and short stories generally - too. Ed Gorman is not only a very good editor but is himself a master of the short form and The Collected Ed Gorman, published recently, contains a number of gems.

Yes, I'm very grateful to Ed for helping support and actively promote short crime fiction. I checked one of his older anthologies out of the library today. Can't seem to get enough...

Hi BV,

I've been waiting for this. Thanks for letting us know it's been released.

I am a huge fan of Ed Gorman and I ,too, am grateful that he is a major proponent of mystery short stories.

I await delivery of his new novel Sleeping Dogs. Now I'll have to go hunt down this anthology.
