FR Fantastic Detectives ebook cover NEW WEB 72DPSeptember 2014

Fantastic Detectives
Edited by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Fantastic detectives come in many forms, from dogs to elves to eggs. (Yes, eggs.) And fantastic detective stories come in all mystery subgenres, from cozy to hard-boiled. (Remember. Eggs.) All of these forms and subgenres combine to create one of the most delightful additions to the Fiction River anthology series. With stories featuring New York Times bestseller Kevin J. Anderson’s popular zombie detective Dan Shamble and USA Today bestseller Dean Wesley Smith’s most beloved character, Poker Boy, Fantastic Detectives provides Fiction River’s most creative volume yet!

Fiction River: Fantastic Detectives is a great choice for anyone who loves it when genres are swirled together. It’s nominally more heavily influenced by mystery conventions and tropes, but the science fiction and fantasy elements in it are almost as strong.” —Long and Short Reviews

Includes stories by  Joe Cron, Dayle A. Dermatis, Karen L. Abrahamson, Kara Legend, Kevin J. Anderson, Ryan M. Williams, Alistair Kimble, Paul Eckheart, Juliet Nordeen, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and Dean Wesley Smith

FR Past Crime ebook coverNovember 2014

Past Crime

Edited by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Laws change from culture to culture, decade to decade. Strange laws make criminals of ordinary citizens. Like the Massachusetts woman whose brother asks her for help, slave hunters at his heels. Or the Chinese immigrant who finds himself in the middle of a crooked game of Fan Tan. Or the Native American detective searching New York’s Stonewall Bar for a ratfink on the night of a world-changing riot. These stories and more prove that once again, Fiction River’s crime volumes have, in the words of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, “high quality throughout.”
