New crime fiction magazine to launch 

Starting next month, a new print magazine about the mystery genre will be making its way into bookshops and subscribers' homes. As imagined by Jon Jordan (whose first book with Mystery One Publications, INTERROGATIONS, was a compendium of author interviews he's done over the years), Crime Spree seeks to offer something a little bit different for mystery fans and those in the industry--there will be interviews, some short fiction, and columnists, but writers such as Reed Farrel Coleman, Blake Crouch, and Brian Wiprud will contribute special features about their own experiences.

I tend to think of the magazine as crime fiction meets INSTYLE with a little bit of VANITY FAIR thrown in for good measure. But then, such a description could be chalked up to a wee bit of bias, as yours truly conducted the cover interview with UK-based author Mark Billingham.

Subscription information is available here, and further information about the launch issue is here.
