This is a dandy anthology! Very entertaining stories. And I think FLORIDA will win the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship.

BV Lawson

Yes, George, I believe you are right. It would be one of the biggest upsets of all time if Florida loses this one. They certainly look unstoppable. This is a big year for the SEC - three teams in the Sweet Sixteen. (And UK and UT have their women's teams in the Six Sixteen, also).

This made me smile when I read the list of authors who contributed. Rozan organizes a pick up basketball game at every Bouchercon for anyone who wants to play. I think it's mostly writes who show up. Not being a sports fan (something a man should never confess, I suppose) at all I never went to one to play or watch. And I would never have known that they all wrote stories featuring the game.

BV Lawson

It was pretty surprising to see some of the folks who penned these stories. Might have to give it a try myself soon. :-)

SteveHL

Nothing to do with this book, but S. J. Rozan wrote a very good, Edgar-nominated basketball-themed short story, "Hoops", in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine back in 1996. It has been anthologized several times, including a couple of "best of the year" collections.

BV Lawson

Thanks for that tidbit, Steve! I'll search it out ASAP.
