Heath Lowrance; Kirkus; Beat To A Pulp; Mystery Readers Journal

From Heath Lowrance:

Hi Ed, thought you might be interested in my new e-short. It's a horror-western-pulp-adventure mash-up, the first in a new series from Trestle Press. Ed here: That Damned Coyote is really a hoot and a fine story. Check it out.


I hadn't seen the Kirkus review of Bad Moon Rising until yesterday afternoon. Decent marks with a nice money quote: "Read this installment, like all the others (Ticket to Ride, 2009, etc.), for the pop-historical detail and the loving evocation of small-town America."

From David Cranmer:

A real quick letter to let everyone know the latest eBook I've edited has just been released. It is called BEAT to a PULP: HARDBOILED and is available at Amazon for $0.99: http://www.amazon.com/BEAT-PULP-Hardboiled-ebook/dp/B0061NQXHY/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1320091997&sr=1-1#_.

HARDBOILED is a compilation of uncompromising, gritty tales following in the footsteps of the tough and violent fiction popularized by the legendary Black Mask magazine in its early days. This collection includes thirteen lean and mean stories from the fingertips of Garnett Elliott, Glenn Gray, John Hornor Jacobs, Patricia Abbott, Thomas Pluck, Brad Green, Ron Earl Phillips, Kent Gowran, Amy Grech, Benoit Lelievre, Kieran Shea, Wayne D. Dundee, and yours truly and a boiled down look at hardboiled fiction in an introduction by Ron Scheer. I co-edited the collection with Scott D. Parker.


From Janet Rudolph

"The next issue of Mystery Readers Journal will focus on Shrinks and other Mental Healthcare Professionals. Would love to have an Author! Author! essay from you for this issue (Volume 27:4). 500-2500 words, first person, upclose and personal about yourself, your books and the 'shrink' connection. Think of it as talking to friends and other writers in the cafe or bar. Please add a 2-3 sentence bio/tagline and snail-mail address (I'll send a copy when it comes out).

Mystery Readers Journal is in its 27th year of publication. We are a review quarterly. MRJ is available in both hardcopy and PDF. Have a look at tables of contents from past themed issues.
