Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives

Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives: Stories from the Trailblazers of Domestic Suspense - Sarah Weinman

This is a wonderful anthology, edited by Sarah Weinman, of some of the best women crime/horror writers, and she has don and excellent job of it. Every story was good, 

 

My favourites were Louisa, Please Come Home by the legendary Shirley Jackson, A Case of Maximum Need by Celia Fremlin and Lavender Lady by Barbara Callahan.

 

I was a regular reader of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine as a youth, and many of the stories are taken from there. Luckily, I only remembered them after I'd read them.

 

I love short stories, especially crime and fantasy ones, and anthologies like this one are such a treat. Highly recommended.
