SKIN AND BONES, edited by Dana Kabel






I meant to talk about this a few weeks ago, but...anyway here is a fun anthology published by Down and Out Books, which seems to publish the majority of such books lately. It has been in the works for about three years. All the stories have a cannibal theme of sorts. Writers include Stuart Neville, Charles Ardai, Patricia Abbott, Dave Zeltserman, Lawrence Block, Jason Starr, Bill Crider and a bunch more of notable short story writers. .If your appetite and your holiday money holds up, you might give it a look. In pb and ebook.

Thanks, Patti. I doubt I could pass up that lineup of talent.

I'm reading Helene Tursten's collection AN ELDERLY LADY IS UP TO NO GOOD, short stories about an 88 year old killing people who she thinks are asking for it. (The first, for example, was an "artist" who seemed to be after her apartment.)

I have been meaning to read her forever and I got that one out of the library. But they only gave me a week so I only read the first two. On reserve again.

They ad an ebook available (I waited a couple of weeks), so have the full three weeks.

I have yet to learn how to download ebooks from my library.

That's a wonderful lineup of authors, I'll have to get this.

Especially liked the Charles Ardai story so far.

This sounds great, Patti. Thanks for the reminder of it. Down & Out is doing some good stuff.
