This collection of short stories from twenty writers (no fewer than ten are members of CrimeSpace) is the brainchild of our own Tim Hallinan.  He has worked on this project for several months now, as our contribution to the Japan disaster relief.  The book contains mysteries, articles, and Basho's haikus and is an altogether lovely thing.


The book is available on Kindle (and as a download for your PC).  It is already, in just a few days, bringing in fantastic sales.  The last tiime I looked it was number 20 for Kindle books, and number 13 for short stories.

The price is a mere $ 3.99 and all the profits go to the Japan Relief Fund.  Go and sample!  And do a kind thing!


(Oh, one of my stories is included)

Ah!  See what a nice guy he is?  I'm a bit technologically challenged about all those options.

Just an FYI: Timothy Hallinan dropped me a note, saying "Shaken" isn't available for the Nook yet (it will be in time), but that people can e-mail him at after they buy the Amazon version and he'll send over an .epub that can be sideloaded into the Nook.

I'm sorry, Ben, but SHAKEN is a Kindle exclusive.  It is PC compatible, though.  I think this had something to do with getting the best deal.

Just checked, it doesn't look like it's available for Nook yet. Will it be on there soon? I do want to pick this up.

A great idea, IJ. At $3.99, it's a no-brainer for my nook. I gave free e-books to anyone who donated to Japan relief efforts.


Dan, all ebooks from Amazon or BN can be read on a PC. You first download (for free) the e-reader software. Then you use that software just like you would a Kindle or Nook.


The Kindle software is here.


The Nook software is here.

Thanks, John.  I was so pleased that Tim let me participate. He's a great guy.

I bought it this morning. Well done to all involved.
