Wednesday Short Stories from Three Collections / Anthologies

Here are the three short story collections / anthologies I’m working on right now. At some point – probably pretty soon – I’ll take a break to read a novel.

from The Thinking Machine: Fifty Novelettes and Short Stories: by Jacques Futurelle
“The Mystery of the Fatal Cipher”
“Mystery of the Flaming Phantom”
“The Tragedy of the Life Raft”

from The Mammoth Book of Steampunk edited by Sam Wallace
“Fixing Hanover” by Jeff Vandermeer
“The Steam Dancer” by Caitlin Kiernan
“Icebreaker” by E. Catherine Tobler

from The Collected Max Carrados Investigations by Ernest Bramah
“The Coin of Dionysius” (reread)
“The Knight’s Cross Signal Problem”
“The Tragedy at Brookbend Cottage”
“The Clever Mrs. Straithwhite”
“The Last Exploit of Harry the Actor”

The first four of the Max Carrados stories are rereads, as I read the ebook version of a collection last year, which only had a dozen stories, as opposed to the 21 in this print book. I really like these.

    Futurelle went down on the Titanic.

    Good choices. I like the Carrados and Thinking Machine stories too.

    Happy Birthday (tomorrow?), Cap’n Bob.

    I like the Thinking Machine stories. I have The Collected Max Carrados Investigations on my Real Real Soon stack. I have a lot of MAMMOTH books but not The Mammoth Book of Steampunk. All three books look good to me!

  4. Our library system is closed down again, I have six books on hold but now everything is ‘frozen’. So it’s good I have lots of books of my own here, including these, and all the other short story anthologies I listed in a recent post.

    So there are about 100 stories total in those three books? That will keep you busy for a while. I have a few short story books going but they are all about 10 – 12 stories apiece.

  6. A HEADS UP: no Friday post this week.
