Edward D. Hoch mysteries now on Kindle
« on: November 29, 2013, 07:04:41 pm »
I've been looking forward to this day for quite some time. The Mysterious Press has released some of award-winning Edward D. Hoch's many mystery short stories and novels as ebooks. Hoch was one of the most popular writers of short stories for The Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine for many years, and as known as  master of the form, writing over 950 short stories, in which there were 14 series characters! These stories emphasize mystery and deduction; if you want car car chases or graphic violence then these won't be for you. I don't know of any gratuitous sex and vulgarities, but I can't vouch for this for all the works, having been able to find and read only a very few of the stories (enough to whet my appetite for more, though). I think he only wrote three or four novel length works.

I immediately purchased:



and

    Loved Hoch's short stories, especially Dr. Sam, Nick Velvet and Simon Ark. Glad to see some things seeing e-print.

    There are 22 volumes available, and I have been informed by someone who is in the know that there will be some bargains tomorrow.
