"Cambridge Voices" anthology is out!

Cambridge Voices: A Literary Celebration of Libraries and the Joy of Reading is out! I have five copies in my hot little hands (well, ok, on my bookshelf) and I cannot wait to read the contributions by such luminaries as Jill Lepore, Matthew Pearl, Robert Pinsky, Gail Mazur, and others (my own contribution is a Dulcie short story). Supposedly, those who do not live in our fair city will soon be able to purchase this pretty little collection from the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library website. Otherwise, give a call to Harvard Book Store or Porter Square Books. This nifty volume would make a great last-minute gift - and it supports our library, too!

Meant to post this earlier - my review of "The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein," by Peter Ackroyd, a really fun and smart reimagining of the classic.

Kenmore Kitty finds a home

After months of living like this, this friendly, playful tabby has been trapped and taken home by a T trolley operator. A real-life happy ending! Yay!

"Probable Claws" for the holidays!

Signed hardcovers make the best gifts - don't they? – and signed first editions of both of my two latest mysteries, Probable Claws and Shades of Grey, are available at Harvard Book Store (call 'em, they ship). But for those who just want something to read, Worldwide today unveiled its mass market paperback edition of Probable Claws – for less than $5! This is a web-only deal, but at this price, it's pretty unbeatable! (And yes, I'll sign any edition of my books.)

Oh, and it seems Worldwide still has the mass market Cries and Whiskers in stock, too!

Happy December (rabbit, rabbit)!
