« The Dead by James Joyce | Main | A Century of Books: Update »



I've never read anything by Barbara Callahan but this sounds good.
Vera Caspary is the author of Laura, I think. I loved the movie and always meant to read the novel as well.
I saw her story is much longer in this collection. I hope it's a good one.


What an unintended interesting pairing of stories this week! Both sound quite good. If you read Family Life it will be interesting to see the wider context of the story.


It sounds like they really did a great round-up of stories for this collection. So many new writers to discover right? And, did you mention a while back that you had subscribed to Ellery Queen Magazine? I used to find it on the newsstand at B&N but haven't seen it in quite a while. I'm tempted to subscribe.


I hadn't even heard of her before, but she wrote quite a lot of stories during her time. I'm looking forward to reading Vera Caspary--I *have* heard of Laura, so this will be something to look forward to. It is a longer story, so I will start reading during the week rather than waiting until the weekend, So far they have all been pretty good--some a little better than others, but it's an enjoyable collection.


It's been a little dangerous--with each story I add yet another author to my list of those to explore! These were a good combination!


I do subscribe, but I admit I have not been keeping up very well with my reading. I have them stacked by my bedside but I tend to reach more often for my books than my magazines to be honest! However, I do need to read more of the stories as I am amazed how many seem to be showing up in other anthologies.
