"Deadly Anniversaries celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Mystery Writers of America with a collection of stories from some of the top names in crime fiction. An anniversary can honor many things: a birth, a wedding and sometimes even a death. In Deadly Anniversaries, editors Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini present new stories from some of the best contemporary authors to honor the diamond jubilee of the Mystery Writers of America, an organization founded on the principle that "Crime Doesn't Pay -- Enough". Each author puts their own unique spin on what it means to recognize a certain day or event each year. These nineteen stories travel across a wide range of historical and contemporary settings and remind readers of how broad the mystery writing tradition can be, encompassing detective tales, domestic intrigue, psychological suspense, black humor and thrilling action. By the time this group of bestsellers and award-winners is through, none of us will ever look at anniversaries the same way again." --… (mere)

Not Kinsey but as aptly quirky

Each short story occurs on an event anniversary in this anthology compiled by the Mystery Writers of America and edited by Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini. Few mystery short stories work well for me because authors simply lack time to build an interesting plot. About three worked really well for me, and a couple of others seemed better than average. I tried one author's series in the past and found I hated her short story just as much as her series. One story alternated between the past and the present--an over-used style I hate more and more each time I encounter it. Overall it is an average to slightly above average mystery short story collection. ( )

All these tales have one thing in common. They are all commemorating an anniversary of one kind or another. But probably not in the manner you would be likely to celebrate. Some have a twisty path, others a surprise ending. Some you will love, others may not be your cup of tea. My favorite was the one by Laurie R. King, especially since she wrote a mystery with Mary Russell as the protagonist. But while you may enjoy some stories more than others, all are certainly worth reading, and thinking about, the next tine you have an anniversary to celebrate. ( )

Deadly Anniversaries edited by Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini is a collection of short stories written by award-winning members of the Mystery Writers of America. As per the title, each story is about some type of anniversary. There are historical stories and contemporary mysteries and detective procedurals and scary stories. There is something here for everyone and this may be an opportunity to read a story by an author you have been meaning to sample. The list of authors contains the following: Sue Grafton, Laurie R. King, Lee Child, Margaret Maron, S.J. Rozan, Max Allan Collins, Wendy Hornsby, Jeffery Deaver, Bill Pronzini, Carolyn Hart, Peter Lovesey, Meg Gardiner, Marcia Muller, Julie Smith, William Kent Krueger, Peter Robinson, Naomi Hirahara, Doug Allyn, Alison Gaylin and Laura Lippman. This is a collection worth reading by mystery buffs. Highly recommended. Thank you to Hanover Square Press and NetGalley for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. ( )

A variety of well established mystery authors crafted short stories celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Mystery Writers of America. All stories have to do with an anniversary of some sort. Included are Sue Grafton, Bill Pronzini, Peter Robinson, Peter Lovesey and others.

Most of the stories were great. The book opens with a great story from Sue Grafton. While not all there top notch, most were.

This is a welcome tribute to the Mystery Writers of America. ( )
