Tom O'Neil: Happy New Year from my snowy mountain cabin

28 December 2013 4:10 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Here's my favorite way to spend the New Year holiday – up at my snow-kissed cabin in the Pennsylvania Poconos where deer, pheasants and chickadees dart between the trees and across a frozen lake while I get snug before a dancing fire inside. I'm reading an old tradepaper book. Remember paper? It's "The Best American Mystery Stories of the Century," which includes short works by literary titans like Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, John Steinbeck, Willa Cather, James Thurber and Flannery O'Conner plus spookmeisters Ellery Queen, Harlan Ellison and Ross Macdonald. I'm surprised by who I think has the best work so far in my reading: Stephen King. His "Quitters, Inc." is … wow, yikes, yeowsa. I've made a sorry mistake underestimating this man till now. -Break- Such are the splendid discoveries I enjoy while I put aside my cyber-obsession and Oscarmania for a moment as 2013 winds down. I hope you're doing so. »
