Overview

A new collection of classic, hardboiled crime stories from the award-winning Sellers

In settings as diverse as a struggling advertising agency, a book store, and a large computer company, the protagonists in Kickback and Other Stories find duplicity, betrayal, and sudden violence. As so often in life, there are no heroes, and it's often hard to tell who is the greater villain. A four-time nominee for the Crime Writers of Canada's Arthur Ellis Award for Best Short Story, and winner of the 2001 Ellery Queen Readers' Award, Sellers' stories have appeared in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Down & Out Magazine and numerous anthologies. Don Hutchison, acclaimed author of Great Pulp Heroes, said of Peter Sellers' stories: "A typical Sellers story there is usually one bad decision made, and on that hangs the plot—as well as the perpetrator."
