Have yourself a crooked little Christmas with The Big Book of Christmas Mysteries. Edgar Award-winning editor Otto Penzler collects sixty of his all-time favorite holiday crime stories --many of which are difficult or nearly impossible to find anywhere else. From classic Victorian tales by O. Henry, G.K. Chesterton, and Thomas Hardy, to contemporary stories by Sara Paretsky and Ed McBain, this collection touches on all aspects of the holiday season, and all types of mysteries. They are suspenseful, funny, frightening, and poignant. There are fair-play puzzles by Mary Higgins Clark, Isaac Asimov, and Ngaio Marsh; uncanny tales in the tradition of A Christmas Carol by Peter Lovesey and Max Allan Collins; “twist in the tail” stories by Stanley Ellin and others, stories by pulp icons John D. Macdonald and Damon Runyon; comic gems from Donald E. Westlake and John D. Mortimer, and more. Almost any kind of mystery you’re in the mood for--suspense, pure detection, humor, cozy, private eye, or police procedural—can be found in these pages.
