It Won't Be Summer Without A Little DOMESTIC SUSPENSE

It hasn't been published yet (coming in August 2013) , but the short story anthology, Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives, is already attracting a lot of attention for it's list of female contributors. Some of the greatest mystery and suspense writers of the 20th century are in this collection, including a few of my favorites, like Patricia Highsmith and Shirley Jackson. The editor is Sarah Weinman, no slouch when it comes to recognizing and reviewing great mystery and suspense fiction.

While you're waiting for the date to arrive, check out the book's cool website: Domestic Suspense. You'll find biographies of the writers, comments and links from other mystery authors and blogs, plus some great noir style cover art from the 40s and 50s. I was surprised by the amount of detail in here that I discovered...who knew that Dorothy Hughes was from Kansas City?

It may be another scorching summer, but I have a feeling the heat from this anthology will keep temperatures high until well after Labor Day.
