In just three annual editions, The Best American Mystery Stories has established itself as a favorite among readers and as the fastest growing of all the Best American series. Now Penzler, BAMS series editor, and Tony Hillerman, whose Leaphorn/Chee novels have won him multiple Edgar Awards and millions of devotees, offer an unparalleled treasury of American suspense fiction. The editors winnowed these fifty-five selections from a thousand stories, drawing on sources as diverse as Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Esquire, Collier's, and The New Yorker. Giants of the genre abound -- Raymond Chandler, Lawrence Block, Sue Grafton, Elmore Leonard, Sara Paretsky, and more -- but the editors also unearthed gems by luminaries rarely found in mystery anthologies: William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, Ring Lardner, Damon Runyon, James Thurber, and Joyce Carol Oates. Nowhere else can readers find a more thorough, more engaging, more essential distillation of American suspense.
