Book Cover: Mickey Finn Vol. 1: 21st Century Noir

Mickey Finn: 21st Century Noir is a crime-fiction cocktail that will knock readers into a literary stupor.

Contributors push hard against the boundaries of crime fiction, driving their work into places short crime fiction doesn’t often go, into a world where the mean streets seem gentrified by comparison and happy endings are the exception rather than the rule. And they do all this in contemporary settings, bringing noir into the 21st century.

Like any good cocktail, Mickey Finn is a heady mix of ingredients that packs a punch, and when you’ve finished reading every story, you’ll know that you’ve been “slipped a Mickey.”

The twenty contributors, some of today’s most respected short-story writers and new writers making their mark on the genre, include J.L. Abramo, Ann Aptaker, Trey R. Barker, Michael Bracken, Barb Goffman, David Hagerty, James A. Hearn, David H. Hendrickson, Jarrett Kaufman, Mark R. Kehl, Hugh Lessig, Steve Liskow, Alan Orloff, Josh Pachter, Steve Rasnic Tem, Mikal Trimm, Bev Vincent, Joseph S. Walker, Andrew Welsh-Huggins, and Stacy Woodson.

Book Cover: Best American Mystery Stories 2018

I’ve been buying this anthology for twenty years, but this year’s volume includes a special treat: my story “Death in the Serengeti.” This is the fulfillment of one of my earliest writing dreams, to appear in a Year’s Best anthology.

I’m alongside some of the biggest names in the field: Joyce Carol Oates, Michael Connelly (creator of the Harry Bosch series), Lee Child (the Jack Reacher series), James Lee Burke (the Dave Robicheaux series), Charlaine Harris (the Sookie Stackhouse series), Michael Bracken, and others.

I love this anthology every year. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
