Lawrence Block's Latest Anthology
It was a thrill for me to meet Lawrence Block, a Mystery Writer of America Grand Master at Bouchercon2018.
Larry has been a great friend to Joy on Paper during the past four years and I am happy that four of the contributor's to his latest anthology, At Home in the Dark, will be my guests on Tuesday, April 30th.
“Everyone is a potential murderer-in everyone there arises from time to time the wish to kill-though not the will to kill.”
Crime fiction runs the gamut from cute cozy mysteries to hard-boiled violence.
In this new anthology edited by Lawrence Block, you are at the far end of the dial. Contributors include some of the finest writers in the business: N. J. Ayres, Laura Benedict, Jill D. Block, Richard Chizmar, Hilary Davidson, Jim Fusilli, Joe Hill, Elaine Kagan, Joe Lansdale, Warren Moore, Joyce Carol Oates, Ed Park, Nancy Pickard, Thomas Pluck, James Reasoner, Wallace Stroby, and Duane Swierczynski.
Guests on April 30th at 11 am are:

'Turn up the lights,' he said on his deathbed. 'I don't want to go home in the dark."
