PASSPORT TO MURDER: BOUCHERCON ANTHOLOGY 2017 by John McFetridge, editor
Publication date: October 12, 2017
Synopsis … “[A] rich and varied anthology…” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
Janet Hutchings, Chris Grabenstein, Gary Phillips, and Hilary Davidson headline a new world tour anthology of 22 stories from the heartland of America to Italy, Japan, Mexico, Cuba, England, and more.
Passport to Murder is published in conjunction with Bouchercon, the World Mystery Convention, held in 2017 in Toronto, Ontario. As with the convention itself, the anthology spreads a broad canopy across a wide variety of crime writers from across the country and around the world—including both veteran writers and the brightest up-and-coming talents in the field. All of the stories include some kind of travel ranging from a cross-America ride-sharing trip to tourists in Italy and Japan to a woman on the run in Mexico to murder in Cuba. And even a haunted hotel in Toronto.
All participants contributed their efforts to support our charity—Frontier College, winner of the UNESCO Literacy Prize in 1977—and by extension readers and writers everywhere.
ALL PROFITS GO TO FRONTIER COLLEGE.
