5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great, cheap collection to promote new crime writers, 18 juin 2011
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : First Thrills: High-octane Stories from the Hottest Thriller Authors (Poche)
Since the 1980s, the literary quarterly GRANTA has published every 10 years a volume of writings of who it considers the most promising young British and American writers, always in separate volumes. Reading back these issues, they surely confirmed budding talent, proven later on by solid careers, sales and reputations in writing.

But how to provide an audience for budding crime writers? In 2007, the newly-founded International Thrillers Writers, Inc. (IWF) published "Killer Year 2007", a collection of crime stories by newcomers. This formula did not work commercially. So IWF and established crime writers came with this 2011 alternative: "First Thrills", edited by Lee Child, a collection of 25 crime stories written by 12 bestselling authors and 13 ambitious starters. Most stories stand alone, a few were written by e.g. pairs of practitioners of law enforcement or medicine with established crime writers. But it must be said that few of the aspirants had a clean publishing sheet. The competition to be included in this volume must have been ferocious.
The collection covers many sub-genres and is balanced re m/f contributions. No reader will read them all from start to finish. So this reader's choice in terms of names is irrelevant: All 25 stories are at least pretty good. Half of them are very good, and in my choice of the best six stories female writers outnumber males five to one. Find out who they are. Recommended reading!
