Akitada Stories

If you've followed this blog, then you know I'm a huge admirer of IJ Parker's short stories. Also, if you follow this blog, then you are one of a select few, but that issue can be dealt with later.

For years, I've told her she should get her stories together and I've finally been listened to. The collection is called Akitada and the Way of Justice, and it is available as a Kindle. Probably other formats as well. Sadly, it seems like this is not a COMPLETE collection, but I believe it is every story that has been previously published in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine.

I've read most of the stories. Will I get this collection? Absolutely. Will I try to interview the author and find out more about the background and composing process? No doubt.

Now, the product description at Amazon is a bit too bare, of course, but that can be changed, I'm sure. Anyway, whatever the purchase price, you won't be disappointed.

Wow! Thank you, Steven. You are my favorite guy. Actually, the eleven stories are almost all of them. I believe only two are missing. The "Kamo Horse" is in the Japan Relief collection SHAKEN.
The only other one is "Death and Cherry Blossoms" and that would have made the book a tad long. But AHMM has been sitting on a new one since summer, and that one I really like. It's called "Confessions" and probes levels of guilt three men share in the death of a young woman. They've been getting very slow at AHMM.
But thanks again. This was quite wonderful and much appreciated.
