"Invitation to a Murder"

Published in 1979, this marked my first inclusion in a hardcover anthology. None of the 19 authors are mentioned in Michele Slung's introduction, but the flaptext on the inside front of the dust jacket describes the basic plotlines of seven of the stories — and mine (which you can read here) is the first one mentioned: "Each story has its own fascination: a woman invites the police to witness the murder of her husband...."

My next appearance in an MWA anthology came exactly 10 years later, in Beastly Tales.
