Editorial Reviews

Review

“An intriguing mixture of past tradition and future-shock dystopia, written by a giant of the genre...highly recommended.” ―Lee Childs, author of the Jack Reacher novels

“I have been a fan of Maxim Jakubowski for years. There just is no finer mystery writer and editor anywhere. Find a comfortable chair and a strong drink and prepare to be enthralled.” ―Alexander Algren, author of Out in a Flash: Murder Mystery Flash Fiction

“The Book of Extraordinary Historical Mystery Stores is a stunning collection, simply the best short mystery and crime fiction of the year and a real treat for crime-fiction fans. I highly recommend!” ―Leonard Carpenter, author of the Conan the Barbarian books and Lusitania Lost

“Maxim Jakubowski is deeply experienced in the field... Sometimes a brief zap of great writing is just what you’re in the mood for or have time for. That’s when anthologies like his are ideal....intellectually outstanding.” ―New York Journal of Books
