- Hugh Lamb, editor. Gaslit Horror: Stories by Robert W. Chambers, Lafcadio Hearn, Bernard Capes and Others. Unwieldy title; this anthology has 13 mostly unfamilar horror stories dating from 1882 to 1908. The stories were selected from two earlier anthologies: Gaslit Nightmares: An Anthology of Victorian Tales of Terror and Gaslit Nightmares 2: An Anthology of Victorian Tales of Terror.
- Donna Leon, Death at La Fenice. A Guido Brunetti mystery. By coincidence, I watched the German television movie based on this book the day before I bought it.

- Richard A. Lupoff, Sandworld. Science fiction.
- Sharyn McCrumb, Ghost Riders. A multilayered Appalachian novel, moving from the 1860s to modern times. McCrumb's Spencer Arrowood and Nora Bonesteel appear. McCrumb writes novels now, not mysteries. If that's how she wants to catagorize this book, it's fine with me.

To my knowledge, this is the fifth anthology derived from the magazine.
