It seems a lifetime ago that my story "Hitting Rufus" was included in the 1999 edition of The Best American Mystery Stories. I was surprised and proud my story was picked.
Now, a little bird has whispered in my ear that the anthology isn't getting as many submissions as it used to from online publications. So if you're a writer or editor with mystery / crime stories to show off (if published in 2013) then consider submitting to the address below:
