Recensioner

There were some great essays in here but the book was a little uneven. I don't think there was enough in depth reviews of his work. Some of the essays felt like they were repeating earlier essays and on a personal note I didn't care about Spenser and cooking. Still enjoyed the books. Brought back a lot offend memories of the earlier Spenser novels.

I’ve been reading Penzler’s collection of mysteries for decades now and always find them fun. They have definitely evolved over time just as our literary culture has evolved. I enjoy his opening remarks and find the author info gives leads about more good mystery stories to investigate.

I'm of two minds about this collection, as I am many of Penzler's collections. There is almost a knee-jerk reaction to give this five stars just because it exists. There is no doubt that there is some great stuff here. Names like Hammett, Cain (Paul and James M.), Chandler, Gardner, Nebel, Charters, and Cornell Woolrich fill these pages. If you're a fan of pulp, and/or these writers, however, you might already have read Chandler's Killer in the Rain (the short story he later expanded into The Big Sleep) and the rather famous Red Wind. The same goes for some of these other names and stories here which are well known to those who enjoy the hardboiled pulp genre of another era (or eras, as the case may be).

Though it’s nice that these familiar names and stories are included in this massive book, if you're fairly well read on ‘20s, ‘30s and ‘40s pulp, the real reason to pick this one up would be the lesser known authors and stories from the higher-end detective pulps. And therein exists my caveat to this collection. Penzler appears to have a bias against what is considered the B level of pulp magazines, and some of the authors who wrote in them. To my point, one of Fred MacIsaac's great Rambler stories could very easily have replaced one of Penzler's picks. I might understand the omission of Robert Leslie Bellem's Dan Turner: Hollywood Detective stories due to the slightly salacious (for the time period) situations and dialog, had Penzler not thrown in Sally the Sleuth comics! I actually like Sally the Sleuth, they are great fun. But ignoring Bellem’s Dan Turner stories, with their racy situations and over-the-top dialog, while including Sally the Sleuth is rather eye-rolling. It makes one speculate that inclusions and exclusions had more to do with what could be obtained, rather than what should be here.

So a few lackluster choices, coupled with the glaring omission of Robert Bellem, Norvell Page, and Fred MacIsaac make this one hit and miss for me. I am glad I have it, because in one book I have some of the great stories from those pulp giants I cited at the beginning of the review, all of whom are revered today. Many of those stories are four and five star gems, and Penzler is to be commended for gathering these into one book. However, I was ho-hum about some of the other stories chosen, and even more so because of some glaring (at least to me) omissions. I realize that this was meant to be the high-end of the pulp magazine stories, but still…

Story choices are a matter of personal taste, of course. But seriously, no Fred MacIsaac and no Robert Bellem, not to mention a conspicuously absent Norvell Page, in "The Big Book of Pulps" gives this one a downgrade, because those writers' best pulp stories are miles better than some of the picks here, in my opinion. Pulps weren't literature, they were supposed to be entertaining, and having those three guys absent here, in my opinion, is eyebrow raising.

As is the case with most anthologies, The Mysterious Bookshop Presents the Best Mystery Stories of the Year 2023 was also a mixed bag. The anthology features twenty-one short mysteries written by contemporary authors and a bonus story by Edith Wharton. I liked that each of the stories began with a brief introduction about the author and enjoyed getting to sample the work of so many authors, many of whom I had never read in the past. Some of the stories also end with a note by the author about the inspiration behind the story. I must mention that the Introduction by Amor Towles, in which he discusses how the “Mystery” genre has evolved, was a fascinating read.

My ratings for the stories are as follows:
The first story, “Blind Baseball” by Doug Allyn (3.5/5), revolves around a tontine insurance scheme. This was a gripping read but ended abruptly. “The Adventure of the Misquoted Macbeth” by Derrick Belanger (4/5) is a mystery featuring Sherlock Holmes and is one of the stories that I thoroughly enjoyed. The circumstances surrounding a mysterious break-in are explored in “Princess” by T.C. Boyle (3.5/5) In “Cold Hands, Warm Heart” by Joslyn Chase (3.5/5), a cold case is reopened after the discovery of a body. In “New Kid in Town”(2.5/5) by Andrew Child, Jack Reacher helps in investigating the disappearance of a young girl.

A resident of a hotel housing near the border sheltering undocumented immigrants takes justice into her own hands in “Death at the Sundial Motel” by Aaron Philip Clark (4/5). A young deputy gets more than he bargained for when he is tasked with assisting a Marshal for the Witness Protection Program in “Dodge” by Jeffery Deaver (4/5). In “The Landscaper’s Wife” by Brendan DuBois (3.5/5), our protagonist finds himself tangled in a complex web of manipulation, blackmail and murder. Co-passengers in a train decide to pass the time guessing solutions to real-life situations they share in the group in “Strangers at a Table” by Kerry Hammond (4/5). “Miller and Bell”(2/5) by Victor Kreuiter follows the story of a career criminal who resorts to his old ways of switching identities to evade those who have an axe to grind with him.

In “Two Sharks Walk into a Bar” by David Krugler (3/5), a hustle results in dire consequences for a pair of pool sharks. In “Pobre Maria: A Capitán Guillén Mystery Of Ecuador”(3/5) by Tom Larsen, a seasoned law enforcement official investigates the suspicious death of the daughter of an influential man. “Playing God” by Avram Lavinsky (3.5/5) takes us through the mysterious circumstances revolving around a man’s suicide. “Ears” by Jessi Lewis(3.5/5) is a heart-wrenching story about a young girl’s bond with her dog. Though there wasn’t much ”mystery “ in the plot, it was a good read. “The Smoking Gunners”(2.5/5) by Ashley Lister follows a murderer apprehended at the scene of the crime as she attempts to justify her actions.

A small-town reporter investigates a murder that was caught on camera by a peeping tom cat, whose owner had a camera fixed on his collar in “What the Cat Dragged In” by Michael Mallory(4/5). In “Sundown” by Lou Manfredo (3/5) we follow the lead detective as he investigates the death of a young woman, often consulting with his grandfather, a retired law enforcement officer, to gain perspective. There’s much more to the kidnapping of the daughter of an affluent man than meets the eye in “Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday” by Sean McCluskey(2.5). A detective is haunted by a promise he made to a murdered young girl’s father in “The Promise” by Annie Reed (3/5). A man tries to help his neighbor after a murder in their apartment building in “Glass” by Anna Round (3/5). A hitman’s latest assignment has him curious about the motive in “Crime Scene” by Joseph S. Walker (3.5).

The final story, “A Bottle of Perrier” by Edith Wharton (3/5) follows a young archaeology scholar on his visit to an archaeologist’s home in the middle of a desert in a foreign country where he finds his friend’s domestic staff’s answers to the owner’s whereabouts vague and misleading.

Overall, I found most of the stories rather predictable and only a handful stood out.

I received a digital review copy from the publisher via Edelweiss+. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.
