Mystery Scene Magazine

I’ve been discovering Mystery Scene Magazine the last several weeks and along the way I’ve read many terrific articles about the mystery genre—a terrific story about one of my favorite writers Ed Gorman, another about the old television series Cagney & Lacey, and yet another about the old Dell Map Back Mysteries.

There are also interviews with writers and publishers, articles about mystery in film and television, columns by people like Jon L. Breen, Ed Gorman, Dick Lochte and others. There are also reviews of forthcoming novels, short stories, audio, the small press and more.

The coverage of the magazine is impressive. It covers the entire genre, including suspense, thrillers, noir, hardboiled, whodunits, cozies, and any other sub-genre you can think of. It can be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys the genre—both writers and readers. In short, Mystery Scene rocks! And if you haven’t read it, you should.

There are several articles that can be found on the Mystery Scene website. A few of my favorites are:
