Bouchercon Anthology 2017

cover of Bouchercon 2017 anthology: Passport to Murder

We are very proud of the 22 authors who have been selected for our Bouchercon 2017 anthology.

We are even happier that the quality of the short stories are being recognized by reviewers such as Publishers Weekly with a starred review!

– “rich and varied anthology”
– “not one story is a dud”

Janet Hutchings takes readers on a trip to Vegas in “The Divide,” whose narrative shifts expectations with each new turn in the road; in “Jerusalem Syndrome,” Hillary Davidson shows how a visit to the Holy Land can alter a woman’s life in (perhaps) miraculous ways; and, in Gary Phillips’s “This Ain’t No Time for a Vacation,” a professional killer travels from Texas to the astral plane.”

Our theme is “Passport to Murder” so, naturally, there are a lot of interesting takes on the concept of travel… There are also a variety of styles and subgenres represented – something for everyone! We are very excited about the quality of the submitted stories. We hope you will discover some new-to-you authors, and enjoy some favourites too!
