Paperback is a collection of 18 short stories written by well known mystery authors, namely Ed McBain, Steven Saylor, Ellery Queen, Peter Lovesey, Edward Hoch, Sugust Derleth, Marcia Muller, Edgar Allan Poe, James Grady, Robert Bloch, Michael Lewin, Gahan Wilson, Bram Stoker, Judith Garner, Dorothy Cannell, Talmage Powell, Anthony Boucher, and Peter Straub. I read the first two short stories, "Monsters" by McBain and "The Lemures" by Saylor. I decided this paperback was not my cup of tea.
I gave this book 3 stars not because the stories were bad really but because it was a weird mix of stories that for some reason I didn't feel belonged in the same book together. Also cause I was mixed between liking a few stories a lot and then having a few that were so so.
