Thrillers: 100 Must Reads–A Great Book

12 May

This is a great book. Really, it is. Reading it brings back memories of the ones that I’ve read and pointed me to others that I somehow missed.

Okay so as one of the contributors I’m biased. But it’s still a great book. And that’s not just my opinion.

It was nominated for an Edgar Award and now has been nominated for an Anthony Award and the Independent Book Publishers Association’s Benjamin Franklin Award.

Congratulations to editors David Morrell and Hank Wagner and to all my fellow authors who contributed essays.

    Thanks, Doug. I’m seriously going to go broke. Just bought it.

    It is all short stories/essays? Looks good.

      It is 100 essays that covers the history of the mystery/thriller genre. Each essay talks about the story, its place in the development of thrillers, and what special meaning it has for each essayist.
