Summary (From the publisher):

In Master's Choice, Mystery Writers of America Grandmaster Lawrence Block asked a wide range of authors to select not only their personal best, but also the one story by a fellow luminary of fiction that stirred their imagination, the story that stimulated, provoked, and entertained them, and most of all, the one, single story that served as an inspiration in shaping their own unique literary worlds. The result is a rich and diverse collection, a stellar showcase of the best of the best. Contributors include, Stephen King, Tony Hillerman, and Joyce Carol Oates.
