Douglas Greene and Jeffrey Marks - Silver Bullets

Twenty-five years of the best mystery short fiction from Crippen & Landru.

In 1994, publisher Douglas Greene opened the doors of Crippen & Landru Publishers with the release of a John Dickson Carr radio play, Speak of the Devil. In the subsequent two-and-one-half decades, Crippen & Landru has produced more than 100 single-author mystery short story collections by some of the most recognized current practitioners as well as some of the most beloved writers in the history of the mystery genre.

Crippen & Landru has new books by the best of the best in short mystery fiction coming up later this year. Next up will be new collections by Edward D. Hoch and many more.

We hope that all of our readers will follow into the next-quarter century of mystery, suspense and detection.
