It’s great to be around when a writer like Albert Tucher gets lucky. Funny thing, the harder Al works, the luckier he gets. Editors Lee Child and Otto Penzler have selected Al’s story “Bismarck Rules” to appear in The Best American Mystery Stories 2010. The story originally appeared in Oregon Literary Review. Al says the honor is doubly gratifying, because it took him almost ten years to place the story. His series character, prostitute Diana Andrews, makes a cameo appearance, but “Bismarck Rules” focuses on Diana’s sidekick Mary Alice Mercier aka Crystal.
