When a dead body turns up at the first ever Dinocon, Secret Master of Fandom and Private Detective Spade knows just who might be behind it all: Lucinda Danielle Stanhope who calls herself the Martha Stewart of Science Fiction. Now he just has to prove it.
Stomping Mad marks the first appearance of Spade, who along with his sidekick Paladin, is one of Rusch's most popular characters.
Stomping Mad by Kristine Kathryn Rusch first published in Return of the Dinosaurs edited by Mike Resnick and Martin H. Greenberg, Daw Books, 1997.
Best-selling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch has been nominated for three Edgar Awards, two Shamus Awards, and an Anthony Award. She has won the Ellery Queen Reader's Choice Award twice.
Stereotypic character with a fun twist. I always like stories set in SF conventions. It was an enjoyable read.The mystery was well plotted. I guessed the 'killer' just as the detective did. It is a treat to discover it on your own. You don't dis-respect the detective or feel like you're dumb.
