“Slick writing sprinkled with grit and a touch of the sinister, Sellers is a true craftsman and his stories are well worth everyone’s time.”
– J. Kent Messum, Author of Bait and Husk Arthur Ellis award winner for Best First Novel
“An esteemed editor of mystery anthologies…Peter Sellers is one of the best known if least prolific of current writers. His rare short stories are always a treat.”
