The Wall Street Journal this week writes about crime fiction in Northern Ireland, beginning the piece with a discussion of Stuart Neville, an idea that remains as fresh today as it was when I did the same thing three years ago. I'll discuss it again next month at Bouchercon 2014 in Long Beach, when I moderate a panel called
"Belfast Noir: Stories of Mayhem and Murder from Northern Ireland.
" The panel will include Neville, Adrian McKinty, Gerard Brennan, and Paul Charles, and I look forward to seeing you there.
y article "Trouble’s Aftermath: Northern Ireland’s Crime Fiction
" is up on Macmillan's new Criminal Element
Web site. The site includes fiction and features covering a wide spectrum of crime writing including a section called Writing the World
devoted to international crime fiction. That's where my article appears, along with pieces on Japanese detective stories, Swedish crime fiction, John Burdett, an English cop's look at The Wire
, and more.
Looks to me like the crime-fiction world has a worthwhile new magazine on its hands. Drop in, and leave a comment.
