John Caruso Published in Crime Anthology

A short story by English faculty John Caruso, They'll Call Me Whistlin' Pete, was included in Kwik Krimes, a best-of-the-web anthology of crime flash fiction published in August 2013.

Edited by Otto Penzler, a highly respected authority on crime and mystery fiction, the anthology features stories by some of the best crime contemporary crime writers including Ken Bruen, Tasha Alexander, Reed Farrell Coleman, Peter Blauner, Joe R. Lansdale and Bruce DeSilva.

David Pitt of Booklist writes:

"Penzler's latest offers something really exciting for fans of short-short stories: a collection of more than 60 stories, all under 1,000 words. While there are some big names here, many of the contributors will be familiar only to readers who follow online mystery publications. But no matter. The stories deliver a wonderful mixture of genres and styles; as Penzler says in his introduction, you wouldn't expect to find such variety in an assortment of mystery stories with such a tight word count. But each and every story is unique, with its own gifts to the reader (and there are more than a few gosh-wow shockers here, too). If the goal of an anthology is to offer something for all readers, no matter how varied their preferences, then this anthology succeeds in splendid fashion."

John Caruso publishes genre fiction under the name Chuck Caruso. He was recently interviewed by the editors of Murder By the Book.
