Crime with All the Trimmings

FourStory, a Los Angeles-based housing-advocacy Web site that frequently offers editorial material beyond what you might expect, has launched a succession of original, holiday-themed short stories, beginning with two Thanksgiving treats: “Revenge,” by Jim Nisbet, and “Hurrah for the Pumpkin Pie,” by Kate Flora.

“Then starting in mid-December,” explains author and FourStory fiction editor Gary Phillips (a sometime Rap Sheet contributor), “we will have up more holiday criminal behavior in which stories of anti-social goings-on will take place during Christmas, Kwanzaa and Chanukah--brought to you by, among others our [editor in chief] and mystery writer, Nathan Walpow, and yours truly.” Phillips assures us that “When you read this fare, you won’t be saying bah, humbug.”
