It’s a thrill to announce that two of our local chapter members, Hilary Davidson and Cathi Stoler, have been honored by the Short Mystery Fiction Society with 2015 Derringer Awards for Best Short Story and Best Long Story respectively!
Congratulations to them both and to all the talented nominees!
Another thrill for the chapter is that Cathi’s story, “The Kaluki Kings of Queens” appeared in Family Matters, the newest anthology by us! Go read more about this terrific collection, edited by member Anita Page, and see what a good year 2015’s been for Murder New York Style!
Dig into the dirty laundry and end up with a Derringer–who knew?!

Fresh Slices , edited by Terrie Farley Moran, was the second in the Murder New York Style series of crime anthologies, and we’re thrilled to report that like our first, Deadly Debut, it’s also back in a sassy new eBook edition, thanks to the efforts of our chapter members in partnership with Glenmere Press!
When the New York/Tri-State chapter of Sisters in Crime began discussing this title, we were drawn to the idea of gathering crime stories from less-sung locales in the five boroughs. We were also enthusiastic about mixing genres and tones with the same kind of lively variety represented within our membership. So these stories are not only written by crime fiction authors you know, but by chapter members making their fiction debuts. These stories are truly slices of life from the most ethnically diverse, most densely populated city in America!

The New York/Tri-State Chapter of Sisters in Crime conceived its very first crime anthology in 2006, and the following year saw the publication of Murder New York Style, the name we’ve now adopted for the whole series. That first title is long out of print and its publisher shuttered, but NYSinC’s growing experience with chapter anthologies encouraged us to return to those early stories and to recapture some for this brand-new, abridged digital collection, published in partnership with Glenmere Press.
Deadly Debut is simultaneously old and new, representing both our chapter’s proud history and its perennial reinvention. We hope you enjoy it.
