Past Crime The Fiction River anthology series is starting off its second year with Past Crime.

And I have a story in it!

New World Gambles is historic mystery that takes place in 1830 or so, in Victoria, BC, during the building of the Canadian Pacific Railroad.

Here’s the description of the anthology:

Laws change from culture to culture, decade to decade. Strange laws make criminals of ordinary citizens. Like the Massachusetts woman whose brother asks her for help, slave hunters at his heels. Or the Chinese immigrant who finds himself in the middle of a crooked game of Fan Tan. Or the Native American detective searching New York’s Stonewall Bar for a ratfink on the night of a world-changing riot. These stories and more prove that once again, Fiction River’s crime volumes have, in the words of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, “high quality throughout.”

(My story is one of those mentioned in the blurb, about Fan Tan. And my name is listed on the cover. Can I just say SQUEEEE????)

If you really like historic crime stories, there’s also a special Kobo edition that contains even more stories!

I’m really excited to be part of these anthologies. The stories in them are outstanding.
