Home Improvement: Undead Edition by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner

By Don Helin

In their latest Anthology, Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner compiled stories so scary that Romantic Times Book Review says, “As home repair projects can sometimes take on a hellish nature, 14 authors hit the nail on the head with these truly DIY nightmares.”

There’s nothing like home renovation for finding skeletons in the closet or other-worldly portals in the attic.  Editors Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner return with an all new story collection of the paranormal perils of DIY . . .   This is the fourth anthology from New York Times best selling pair Toni L.P. Kelner and co-editor Charlaine Harris.  Kelner is also the author of the “Where are we Now?” mysteries, the Laura Fleming mystery series, and the forthcoming Family Skeleton Series.  She’s won an Agatha Award and an RT Career Achievement Award, and has been nominated for the Anthony and the Macavity awards.

No Rest for the Dead edited by Andrew F. Gulli

Special to the Big Thrill by Andrew F. Gulli

It was hot and humid in New York, not many of you will remember the 2005 edition of BEA, but I will for many reasons…

For starters it was the first BEA I attended (and so far the last) and also, I was so damned tired from talking non-stop, shaking hands, and being stuck in that sauna of germs the Javitz Center, that on the airplane journey back home, I was struck with a flu which was biblical in its severity. Being on a runway for three hours and for another three hours on a flight that usually took 90 minutes didn’t help.

A distant memory from that stifling trip that today shines brightly was welcomed by the ITW. I had arranged to see my friend Joe Konrath at the Javitz, “Hey, Andrew you’re coming to the party right?” he asked.

A Between the Lines Interview with First Thrills authors Lee Child, Steve Berry, Michael Palmer, Heather Graham, John Lescroart, and more

by Brett King

It began as an alliance.  When International Thriller Writers was formed in 2004, its promise rested on bringing together established novelists with emerging writers.  As part of its brisk legacy, ITW has championed the work of new authors, a dedication that shines in the breakthrough publication, First Thrills:  High-Octane Stories from the Hottest Thriller Authors.  Forge Books released the critically acclaimed anthology for the first time in paperback on May 24, 2011.

Under the careful editorship of New York Times bestselling author Lee Child, First Thrills brings together original short stories crafted by seasoned authors to help showcase work from debut authors.  “The idea was to sprinkle some major attractions in the shop window, to draw your eye,” Child notes about the participation of bestselling authors.  “[They] all contributed stories—free, gratis, and for nothing, simply because they remembered their debut years and didn’t want to stand by idle.  Among them, they sell many millions of books a year, and we think they brighten up the shop window enormously.”

Pittsburgh Noir by Kathleen George

by Karen Harper

PITTSBURGH NOIR is a collection of 14 stories by writers, each either a resident of or with strong links to the city.  Each story takes place in a different neighborhood—according to the Akashic model for the series.  Pittsburgh is a friendly city—sports crazy, lots of working class sensibility, unpretentious.  And Pittsburghers love their city for its ethnic neighborhoods, its spectacular skyline, and the sports teams that keep us entertained (and tense).  But lust, revenge, and dark impulses exist here too because those are all too human motives.  And those motives make for great stories.

Many genres are represented, and each story (including Stine’s, which opens the book) offers chills, though seldom getting too gruesome. Readers seeking diverse sources of suspense will most appreciate this collection.” —Publishers Weekly

Galway Noir by Pat Mullan

The New Publishing Age
By Pat Mullan

galway-noir.jpgIn June I flew from Ireland to New York. As usual I stuffed a paperback – a fat one, about 400 pages – into my carry-on bag. I had really wanted to take a hardback I’d been reading at home but that was impractical.

As my fellow travelers and I waited at the boarding gate in Shannon, many of us fumbled with our books, newspapers, boarding passes, and passports. Even those of us with a practiced expertise dropped our bookmarks or momentarily panicked when we thought we’d mislaid our boarding pass.
