Noticed: Magazines I'm Not In

The latest issue of Steve Lewis' Mystery*File is out. My column 'In The Frame' was bumped at the last minute, so you'll have to wait for my take on Lee Child's recent novels and Universal's film noir collection. In the meantime, there's plenty in this issue to enjoy, including a look back at the legacy of the late crime novelist Joseph Hansen. Steve has given M*F a new subtitle, The Crime Fiction Research Journal, and it looks like the magazine is moving in an exciting new direction. I'm pleased to be a part of it.

Elsewhere, I learned that the final issue of Futures Mystery Anthology Magazine, which was to include a short story of mine, has been scrapped for financial reasons. Sad news. Futures was always fun to read. C'est la guerre. Here's what the cover would have looked like.
