Bruen offers an excerpt from an upcoming novel, Killer, that looks to be as good as anything I've read by him, and it contains as pertinent a bit of self-reference as any I've read in crime fiction.
McKinty's contribution is a "making of" journal about his novel Fifty Grand, and Phillips offers an appreciation of Charles Willeford and what Willeford meant to his own writing. Lots of places publish crime fiction. Crime Factory offers glimpses of some of the sharp minds that create the stuff. May it live long.
"Get Bacchae (to Where You Once Belonged)"You might also like a contribution from another reader that I wish I had come up with:
"You Can Call Me Alcestis"
"Liver and Let Die" (This one's about Prometheus)
"Saturday Night's All Right for Phaëtōn"
"I Want A Girl Just Like The Girl That Married Dear Old Dad" by Oedipus© Peter Rozovsky 2010
