|Don't look now....|
Purely as a matter of personal enjoyment I prefer the splendid romantic fantasia Sweet Danger, the manners detective novels Death of a Ghost and Dancers in Mourning, the Wodehousian The Case of the Late Pig, the atmospherically rich More Work for the Undertaker, the amnesia thriller Traitor's Purse and the late, dark thriller Hide My Eyes.
Hide My Eyes is in print, both in the US and the UK, so perhaps an odd choice for a forgotten book, but it seems so much in Tiger's shadow that I feel it's a justified choice. I should have the full review up on Saturday.
In the meantime, I wanted to pass along this link, to th Crime Writers' Association's Margery Allingham Short Story Competition for Unpublished Short Stories. Those of you with creative inclinations in this direction should check it out!
Also, all the essays now are in for the Doug Greene festschrift (including two on Margery Allingham), so I hope to talk about this in more detail soon.
