Summary Note "Writing short stories takes "Skill. Discipline. Knowledge of the form while not being formulaic," contends Louise Penny in her introduction. "In a short story there is nowhere to hide. Each must be original, fresh, inspired." Originality is just what's in store for readers of the twenty clever, creative selections in 'The Best American Mystery Stories 2018.' There's no hiding from a Nigerian confidence game, a drug made of dinosaur bones, a bombing at an oil company, a reluctant gunfigher in the Old West, and the many other scams, dangers, and thrills lurking in its suspenseful pages"--
