Crimedogs On Parade


Saturday, September 05, 2009
 
This week brings some news from the ranks of the Crimedogs (no, not him). First, Victor Gischler's new opus Vampire A Go-Go lands on the shelves at finer bookstores everywhere. This book is not a sequel to the fine Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse, but just another brazen attempt to cash in on the current go-go dancing craze, and I am deeply disappointed that Gischler would sink to the level of an obvious cash grab.

On the other hand, a book with "vampires, witches, werewolves, zombies, alchemists, wizards, everything and the kitchen sink" can't be all bad.

His fellow felonious canine Anthony Neil Smith, whose novel Hogdoggin' is racing up the charts everywhere, announced a while back that the new Plots With Guns is now online. The new issue has some really nice photography from Peter Kim, typography from PWG intern Thomas Flynn, and, oh yeah, some stories from the usual butt-kicking suspects, such as Tribe, Keith Rawson, and an excerpt from Scott Phillips' forthcoming novel Supply Sarge.

Speaking of Keith Rawson, he's got a new gig reviewing short fiction at the BCS Review. Looks like this should be a weekly thing, too. Good luck, Keith - you're up against some stiff opposition.

In other 'zines: The Back Alley webzine has a new issue up. After their recent worthwhile Canadian initiative (all Canadian writers), this issue features an all-female roster, including Edgar award winner G. Miki Hayden and the prolific Patriticia Abbott, living proof that writing talent is genetic.

And the lastest I Love A Mystery is now available, with spotlight reviews of authors Mary Jane Clark and David Liss, and a review of the (sadly) last ever John Dortmunder novel from the late, great Donald Westlake.
