2011 Short Story Collections & Anthologies

[edited at 3:36 EDT]

Some of the hardest categories to stay on top of for the Spinetingler Awards are the Anthology and Short Story collection categories. As a general rule anthologies and collections don’t sell as well and they don’t get as much coverage. So this is a simple exercise. The following collections and anthologies are the ones that I am aware of that were released in 2011 and relate to crime fiction in some capacity along with a quick note if I have it or not.

What did I miss?

[For purposes of this discussion I’m not including Snubnose Press titles.]
