Today sees the official publication by Severn House of my latest anthology for the CWA, Original Sins. I'm pleased with the book, and I think it offers a really good mix of stories and authors, with characters from no fewer than five well-loved series making an appearance. I'm extremely grateful for the contributions of a terrific line-up of writers. A word of thanks, too, for the publishers, who have done a very good job of work.
There is an intro from me, and a foreword by Tom Harper, chair of the CWA. Here are the stories:
Simon Brett – Doctor Theatre
Ann Cleeves – Beastly Pleasures
Martin Edwards – Clutter

By the way, tomorrow, in the hope it will entertain/amuse you, I'll post a bit more information about Anthony Berkeley's complicated life.
