This issue, we are happy to reprint Earl Derr Biggers’ third entry in the classic Charlie Chan detective series, Behind That Curtain, as it just entered the public domain.

Bernier (thanks to acquiring editor Barb Goffman), an original science fiction story from Robert Lopresti (best known as a mystery writer), and Diana Deverell’s “Payback is a Bitch,” which was named a Distinguished Mystery Story of 2018 by Otto Penzler.
