MURDER ON WHEELS: A REVIEW




You can’t take a mystery writer anywhere.  He or she will just imagine how and why a murder would happen there.  The Murder on Wheels anthology is just another example.  In the introduction Kaye George tells us she was on the Megabus when she started to imagine the how, the why and the where to hide the body on a bus.  She talked to Austin Mystery Writers who started spinning out stories, invited Earl Staggs and Reavis Wortham along for the ride and picked up Ramona DeFelice Long as the editor (who knows maybe she was hitchhiking.) Wildside, which is where you walk if you don’t have wheels, published the conglomeration of crime on the move stories.

The very accomplished authors in the anthology bounce the reader from the present to the past and back again against landscapes from Texas to the imagination with wheels of just about every possible description.  Reading preferences vary.  You may rate the stories in a very different order than I would but there is something for everybody here.  The writing is of very high quality. 


Do you have other anthologies you’d recommend?

It sounds like a good mystery anthology, Warren. I'll have to get it.

It must have been fun to write the stories. On the move, what a great prompt.

Grace Topping said...

Congratulations to the writers who were published in the anthology, especially Kaye George who mastermind it. It's good to know that there is a market for mystery short stories.

Murder on Wheels sounds like a good mystery anthology. It is now on my "must read" list.

Thanks for the mention, Warren. I felt privileged to be part of this anthology. My story, DEAD MAN ON A SCHOOL BUS, is special to me because I've never before used a school bus in a story. I'm a part-time school bus driver but could never bring myself to mix crime with kids. In this story, I cleverly (I feel)avoided having kids involved.

Those are some of my favorite authors!


I like short stories (on my kindle) for medical waiting rooms, airports, etc. I find them much better than pieces of a longer work, esp. when I'm somewhat distracted. I will have to add this to my supply.
