A Bad Day For Bug
Keith Rawson, Cameron Ashley, Liam Jose and Jimmy Callaway get a tip of the hat for their efforts on the latest edition of Crimefactory. Features from Roger Smith, Leigh Redhead, The Nerd of Noir, plus Liam interviews The Square director Nash Edgerton and CF Godfather David Honeybone grills Peter Temple. Oh, and then there's fiction. Yeah the fiction is brought this time around by Kieran Shea, (part two of three - go back and read part one in CF issue 2), Sandra Seamans, Daniel O'Shea, Greg Bardsley and Dennis Tafoya, (N@B June 28 mofos). An excerpt from my forthcoming novel Peckerwood also finds a spot in there - and I hope you give it a chance, I tried hard to select a portion that reads like a self contained story.
And while I'm tipping hats, Anthony Neil Smith sent out the signal for help with editing Plots With Guns and he's taken on some worthy padawan in Erik Lundy, Gonzalo Baeza and Marty McCabe. So look for new shit from the PWG crew soon.
Today at Ransom Notes Sophie Littlefield's Stella Hardesty inspires me to think of old folks kickin' ass. Taking examples from James Crumley, Scott Phillips, William Gay and the Duane Swierczynski edited Damn Near Dead: An Anthology of Geezer Noir. Looking forward to DND2 from Busted Flush soon.
