The Best American Mystery Stories 2020

My 10,000-word story, "All This Distant Beauty," which first appeared in the winter 2019 issue of Mystery Tribune (no. 8), has been selected for The Best American Mystery Stories, edited by Otto Penzler and, this year, guest edited by novelist C.J. Box.

I've been reading these anthologies since 1999, when Ed McBain was guest editor, and used to dream of having a story selected for the series, so I'm quite thrilled.

It will be released in early November.
