I’m not sure how these escaped my notice when they were first released, and now all I can say is wow. Seven or eight months ago Crossroad Press released several novel collections, and they all sound great. The on that caught my fancy is A Murder of Mysteries. It features 20 novels by some of my favorite writers—

Too Late to Die by Bill Crider
Death is a Cabaret by Deborah Morgan
A. P. B. by Dave Pedneau
Switch by William Bayer
Blood Moon by Ed Gorman
The Turner Journals by Robert J. Randisi
The Hanged Man by T. J. MacGregor
Pink Vodka Blues by Neal Barrett, Jr.
Dead on the Island by Bill Crider
A Hard Day’s Death by Raymond Benson
Prophecy Rock by Rob MacGregor
The Changing by T. M. Wright
A Minor Case of Murder by Jeff Markowitz
Sins of the Flash by David Niall Wilson
Case File by Bill Pronzini
Rough Cut by Ed Gorman
Murder, Sometimes by Patricia Lee Macomber
Tango Key by T. J. MacGregor
One Dead Dean by Bill Crider
Tangier by William Bayer

I have read five of these—Too Late to Die, Blood Moon, Dead on the Island, A Hard Day’s Death, and Case File (a collection of Nameless stories)—and really enjoyed each. A Murder of Mysteries  is available only as an ebook, and the best part is the amazingly low price of $2.99.

Purchase a copy of A Murder of Mysteries at Amazon.

I ordered the horror II set. I haven't read much in it yet but am so excited about my purchase. What a deal. Thanks for telling us about it.

Thanks for posting this. What a deal! I've read a few of them, but there are so many other good ones here. I'm salivating!

You're welcome Matthew. It is a screamer of a deal. There is also a Thriller set, and a couple horror sets that look really good, too.

Anonymous, you'll have to let me know how you like the horror set. There are some really good writers included.
