Crimespree and Me

Being published in CRIMESPREE MAGAZINE has always been a thrill for me. The editors there take mystery quite seriously and if they give you the thumbs up, then you've really done good.

Well, I've done good again. This time, it's an article on Kindle's impact on the short story market called "Kindle Shorts." In it I interview Jonathan Santlofer and Iain Rowan and have a few (kind) words to say about Steve Hockensmith's collection of stories and articles called "My Dog Needs Surgery."

Will there be more articles of this type in the future? Apparently. Jon Jordan more or less gave me carte blanche in this regard during the last Bouchercon. Of course, the party was pretty loud so it's possible one of us misheard...

Oh, and I'm listed as the fiction editor now which is cool. Stories I'm selecting will start appearing in the March issue (if I understand correctly).

More articles to come...

Congratulations, Steve. They couldn't have a better man for it.
As for the impact of electronic publishing on short stories: they used to die a premature death within two months of publication, never to be found again. I know, because I had frantic reader letters asking how to access them. Now we put them up on Kindle et al. and they live forever. Greatest thing that's happened to short stories.
