With reprints from the pages of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Tomorrow SF, Aboriginal SF, Short Story Digest, and other leading publications, along with the original fiction and poetry, Strange Mistresses offers the first comprehensive -- and long awaited -- collection of James Dorr's work. Dorr is a recipient of the 1998 Best of the Web Award and finalist for both the Anthony (mystery) and Darrell (stories set in the mid-south) Awards. He has worked as a technical writer, associate editor on a city magazine, a full-time non-fiction freelancer, and as a musician.
