The latest All Due Respect (Issue 2) is out, with a special look at thriller author Owen Laukkanen, whose latest book, Kill Fee, was published in March. Laukkanen is interviewed by Chris F. Holm and offers up a non-fiction piece about his days on the seas and a story about deep sea fishing. There's also some "seriously dark fiction" from CS DeWildt, David Siddall, Joseph Rubas, Eric Beetner, Liam Sweeny, and Scott Adlerberg. And editor Chris Rhatigan continues his quest to review every Hard Case Crime book. You can grab your copy at Amazon or Amazon UK.
The spring 2014 issue of the excellent crime fiction magazine Needle has also just been released, with original stories from Patti Abbott, Jen Conley, Heath Lowrance, Stephen D. Rogers, Sandra Seamans and more.
Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine is already preparing its June issue to ship. From the blurb: Buried secrets have a way of working their way into the light, sometimes explosively. They may gnaw at psyches, as in Shelley Costa’s "The Specific Gravity of Blood in Sunlight" or Steve Lindley’s "Man Buries Man." There are also new stories from Neil Schofield, John C. Boland, Kevin Egan, Meredith Anthony, Jim Fusilli, Sarah Weinman, and a Mystery Classic by Nedra Tyre.
Likewise, AHMM's sister 'zine, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine has another great lineup for June, with a look at book awards season and new fiction from previous Readers Award winners Dave Zeltserman, with a new case featuring Julius Katz and Archie ("Julius Accused"), and British author Marilyn Todd, with a new story in her Claudia Seferius series ("Bad Taste"). Plus, there are eight other fine shorts from the likes of Bill Pronzini, Robert Lopresti and more.
