Friday Forgotten Books, and some of the people who participate in particular, have these to answer for:
Serpents in Eden edited by Martin Edwards [Poisoned Pen Press, 2016 trade paperback, British Library Crime Classics] – mystery short story collection. I’ve been enjoying quite a few of the BLCC books, this is the latest to cross my threshold.
Exploring the Horizons edited by Gardner Dozois [Science Fiction Book Club 2000 hardcover] – science fiction short story collection. Omnibus of Explorers and The Furthest Horizon. Thick, 911 page collection, beautiful John Berkey cover. I learned of this on George Kelley’s blog.
Art Scott is a big fan of the British Library Crime Classics series. You will enjoy EXPLORING THE HORIZONS. Plenty of great stories between those covers! And, I love that John Berkey cover!
I’ve been reading them for a while now too. Most are very enjoyable. If you hadn’t read the entire post on Black Gate, and posted on it as an FFB, I’d never have known of it. The used copy I got is in nearly perfect condition.
Nice choices. I’ve been enjoying those Edwards anthologies and will check this one out when we get home.
I’ve read a couple of Edwards’ anthologies and several of the novels.
OK. The library has it on order. I put it on hold.
I bought the Dozois anthology, too. A monster volume.
Yes, and with not-very-big print. But I suppose that had to be unless they broke it up into the original two books, which would have made no sense. I have so many short story books stacked around here now it’s ridiculous.
What’s really ridiculous is ordering all the Gardner Dozois anthologies that John O’Neill at BLACK GATE recommended. You’ll be seeing them as future FFBs after I finish reading them.
I was looking around yesterday and have decided I have too many books, so I’m not buying any more. I know I can count on you to keep the book buying faith.
Dozois has done a lot of good anthos.
He sure has, Charles.
