FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 28, 1984

ONCE UPON A CRIME by Ed Gorman
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 1, 1998

"Jon L. Breen, Simon Clark, Mat Coward, Gary A. Braunbeck, Edward D. Hoch, John Lutz, John Helfers, Simon Brett, Peter Crowther, Audrey Peterson, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and Doug Allyn round out a circle whose provocative concept makes it more satisfying as a whole than in any particular story."

"Still, if you liked Medea, you'll certainly like this."
Shared-world anthology (of Harlan Ellison's 1985 Medea), using a scenario created by two veteran writers, Poul Anderson and Frederik Pohl (the inspiration here is, of course, the poet Lady Murasaki's famous 11th-century Tale of Genji), and featuring stories by them and the stellar lineup of David Brin, Gregory Benford, Greg Bear, and Nancy Kress.

MORE HOLMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS by Martin H. Greenberg
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 11, 1999

"On the evidence, however, the editors might consider giving Holmes next Christmas off."
Whatever the reason—maybe something off in the mince pie or the plum pudding—these 11 Sherlockian Yuletides tap the same vein as Holmes for the Holidays (1996), but to less effect. Read full book review >
