This month we’re delighted to present a reading by author Paul D. Marks of the most recent winner of the EQMM Readers Award, his tale “Ghosts of Bunker Hill,” published in the December 2016 EQMM. A native of Los Angeles, Paul Marks evokes that city’s history hauntingly in this story, the first in a series featuring private eye Howard Hamm.

This month’s episode is from the private-eye genre, the second in a series of stories featuring an offbeat former newspaper reporter turned P.I. The author, Peter Hochstein, is himself a former newspaper reporter who has had a number of novels published under various pseudonyms. Here is Peter Hochstein reading his darkly humorous tale “The Client, the Cat, the Wife, and the Autopsy,” from our January/February 2017 issue.

Throughout 2016 Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine has been celebrating its 75th anniversary. This last recording for 2016 is particularly appropriate for an anniversary celebration. Harry Kemelman is one of a number of notable authors who got their start in the pages of EQMM. The creator of the bestselling Rabbi David Small series, his work first appeared in print in the April 1947 issue of EQMM. He had entered the magazine’s second annual worldwide short story contest, and was awarded, along with two other new writers, a special prize, along with publication of his story. Reading that first, award-winning Kemelman story, “The Nine Mile Walk,” for this podcast is EQMM’s book reviewer, Steve Steinbock.
