The Guppy anthologies just keep getting better and better. I enjoyed FISH OR CUT BAIT, savoring the excellent short stories between reading longer works. I started with familiar authors, and then discovered the new ones. All were excellent, with intriguing characters and mysteries.
Jim Jackson's "Mind over Manners" resonated with special truth for this retired teacher. It took me back into the classroom and reminded me of favorite students . . . and also of the problem students who we hoped would (and usually did) grow into responsible adults.
One big plus of retirement is being able to read more of what I want, and what I want is the NEXT Guppy anthology.
One of the anthology’s best qualities is the variety of time, settings, and writing styles. It’s interesting that few stories actually involve a murder. Of the 20+ stories, nearly all I noted as good or great. Some of my favorites were “Bargaining Chip”, “A Shifting Plan”, “Easy Prey”, “Deception” and “Blinded by Murder”. Only two didn’t really work for me, but overall this book delivers great entertainment. For mystery fans looking for a quick, fun read, this is a good choice.
