Best Detective Stories of the Year 1974, ed. Allen J. Hubin (more reading, whee!)

Just finished Best Detective Stories of the Year 1974. Picked this gem up for $1 at the Friends of the Seattle Public Library sale this spring. Excellent steal. There wasn't one story in this anthology that I didn't like. There was a little theme of wait for the last couple paragraphs to see how someone gets screwed going on, but other than that it was highly original. None of the stories dragged.

Sorry, no author list to paste here. My catalog program doesn't show the authors in a collection except in a spot I can't cut and paste. I should make a to-do item to fix that.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
