I’m in the 10th edition of The Mammoth Book Of Best British Crime

The 10th edition of  Maxim Jakubowski’s legendary The Mammoth Book Of Best British Crime is now available for pre-order. I was jammy enough to have a story – Guns Of Brixtonin the 8th edition, along with Ian Rankin, Denise Mina, Paul Johnston, Nigel Bird, Colin Bateman, Nick Quantrill and loads of other big names. And I’ve also shoe-horned a story- Who Killled Skippy? into this one!  Corker!

Anyroads, here’s the blurb:
42 fantastic stories from Britain’s best crime writers. A superb  collection of the year’s most outstanding short crime fiction published in the  UK.
Jakubowski has succeeded, as ever, in showcasing the impressive breadth of  crime writing, from cosy tales of detection to noir mayhem and psychological  suspense and terror. There are puzzles to solve, nagging questions about the  nature of the society in which we live, but, above all, there is an abundance of  first-class entertainment. Last year saw a sixth Crime Writers Association Dagger  award for the series – shared between Margaret Murphy and Cath Staincliffe – and  an Edgar award for Peter Turnbull. All three award-winning stories are included  in this volume.Lee Child makes his debut and there is a first story from Neil  Gaiman, too, in Sherlockian rather than fantastical mode.
Return offenders  include Ann Cleeves, Phil Lovesey and Ruth Rendell, among many other familiar  names. There are a number of newcomers to the series, too, including Nina Allan,  Joel Lane and Lisa Tuttle.’
Plus Richard Godwin, Col Bury, Nick Quantrill and many, many more …
