PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Attention to Books of Interest
Dead Letters: Stories of Murder and Mayhem: Chris F. Holm: Amazon.com: Kindle Store: This collection from award-winning author Chris F. Holm features nine stories of crime, horror, and, uh, whatever you'd call a tale that takes place at the North Pole and stars an elf-detective. Featuring "Action," which first appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine; the Anthony-nominated novella "The Hitter," which was selected by Harlan Coben and Otto Penzler for THE BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY STORIES 2011; and a brand new, never-before-seen horror yarn called "One Man's Muse." Also included are "The Putdown," "A Native Problem," "The Man in the Alligator Shoes," "A Night at the Royale," "The Final Bough," and "Green."
