Spinetingler Mag, A Thrilling Pause, Etc.


Sunday, June 11, 2006
 
News for a summer Sunday morning (technically still spring, but come on, I live in Texas):

* The latest issue of Sandra Ruttan's Spinetingler Magazine is now online, and it's a good one. Shockingly, there seem to be more men than women in this issue, though there are stories by Sarah Weinman (as required by law - true story), Megan "No Relation" Powell, and many others. Seriously, this magazine hasn't received the attention it deserves, so be sure to check it out. Complete contents:

"And The Devil Will Drag You Under", by Stephen Blackmoore
"Demon in the Storehouse", by Megan Powell
"Cursive Three", by Joe Swope
"A Dream", by Erato Sahapoglu
"The Kiss", by George Burden
"DJ's Girl", by Sarah Weinman
"Downdraft From Tokyo", by Michael Obilade
"Tigergirl", by Daniel Arenson
"Domino", by M.G. Tarquini

And there are a number of reviews and interviews as well.


* The venerable Kevin Burton Smith of The Thrilling Detective has announced that it's going on hiatus for a while - bad news for those who love us some private eye action. TTD is the longest running mystery fiction site on the web and has published some truly stellar stories, including one that took home the Edgar (until they realized they'd made a mistake!), so let's all cross our fingers and hope Kev returns soon.


* And I'm behind the times in pointing this out, but when you hit the bar at Bouchercon, Ray Banks is buying. When I read about his "six-figure" deal, my first reaction was, six figures of what? Italian Lira? Japanese Yen?

But I'll rein in my raging jealousy long enough to say: It's no more than you deserve, Ray, and best of luck.
