Be the first to ask a question about By Hook or By Crook and 27 More of the Best Crime and Mystery Stories of the Year
I don't know if this is common with short story collections, Not with ones I read, I found every story different from the others. I very much appreciated this facet of the collection.
The forward was a waste of my time. Why would I care about all of that insider information. Give me the one and a quarter page forward everytime (if one feels the need to publish a forward at all.)
(PS--too many Sherlock Holmes pastiches.)
I have always liked short stories, they are what first turned me into a book worm, but I was really disappointed in this collections.
