ThrillerFans of suspense and crime fiction will love two anthologies aptly titled Thriller: Stories to Keep You Up All Night and Thriller 2: Stories You Just Can’t Put Down.

The writers in this group each contributed original short stories to be included in the first Thriller anthology.

The first anthology contains over thirty short stories that often include some of the writers’ well-known characters from popular series. The stories vary and cross multiple genres including historical, mystery, and science-fiction. All are fast-paced heart racing reads. Some of the authors included are Michael Palmer, Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, Denise Hamilton and John Lescroart.

Thriller 2Thriller 2 (published in 2009) also includes over thirty short stories. Almost all of the authors in this follow-up anthology created stories with completely new characters that are not found in any of their series. Some of the contributing authors of this volume are Ridley Pearson, R.L. Stine, Jeffrey Deaver, Carla Neggers, Lisa Jackson and Phillip Margolin.

What makes the Thriller anthologies special is that the stories are edited by two masters of the thriller genre. James Patterson edited the first Thriller and Clive Cussler edited Thriller 2. Patterson and Cussler provide introductions to each story which give the reader insight into the background of the authors and their characters as well as elements of their writing styles. Both Thriller anthologies have something for every type of thriller enthusiast. These books are a great way to try out some new authors or revisit your favorites.
