Lawrence Block has managed to do something really cool. He asked some of todays top mystery writers to pick their favorite of their own stories as well as the story they most admire or that most influenced them. Stephen King selected his The Wedding Gig and Joyce Carol Oatess Murder-Two- Peter Lovesey picked his The Crime of Miss Oyster Brown and Donald E. Westlakes hilarious Too Many Crooks- Harlan Ellisons choices were his Tired Old Man and Jacques Futrelles classic The Problem of Cell 13- and Tony Hillerman, best known for his novels, named his First Lead Gasser and Joe Goress Edgar-winning Goodbye, Pops. There is a wide range in this handsome volume, with authors selecting work from the world of pulp fiction (Benjamin Appel), literary fiction (John OHara and Stephen Crane), and horror fiction (W.F. Harvey), as well as the more traditional mystery fiction.Its not too soon to look forward to the next volume in what we hope will become a long-running series. --Otto Penzler
