Sweet Victory: Spinetingler is Up

The new issue of Spinetingler proved to be a stubborn issue, but at last the Winter Issue is up, filled with all sorts of scrumptious goodies, just in time for your holiday indulging. There are stories by the likes of Bill Cameron, Stephen Allan, and Angie Johnson Schmit. But that’s not all! There are also stories by Vincent H Keen - he of the annoying name that, if I were him, I would just shorten to VINCE KEEN, because that sounds tough and crime writery – and JD Rhoades. And there are others, but they aren’t bloggers, which is the only reason I’m not doing a full-fledged list. You’ll find all the goodies at the site.

But if that isn’t enough to entice you already, try this on for size. I interview not one, not two, but three fantastic authors. And I recommend that you read them all, because names are mentioned and other authors interject on one of the interviews. In fact, I recommend starting with Jess Lourey, then Duane Swierczywonderboy and then Mark Billingham. When you read them, it will all make sense.

Still here? What the hell is wrong with you? Alright then. As though you needed any more enticement, Russel has made an appearance in this issue.

Go forth and spread the word. Seriously, it’s another massive issue. The print version will be available for purchase next week.

Meanwhile, we will collapse from sheer exhaustion.

You know what the cool thing is, though? Next year some of the authors I’ll be interviewing include David Terrenoire, Anthony Bidulka, Rick Mofina, Allan Guthrie, Robert Fate, Anne Frasier, Tess Gerritsen, Julia Buckley and Ken Bruen.

Right. I’m off to cuddle up with one of Barnes and Noble’s best crime fiction picks of the year, Ken Bruen’s American Skin. A read which is definitely on my top ten list for the year, which is more important than silly ol’ Barnes and Noble’s list.

I do dearly hope we managed to get all the bugs out of this issue…

Hey, did the last episode of The Wire blow you away or was it just me?

Patti, I answered the que in my new post, but in short, yeah. Now the only question is what season 5 will do to McNulty.

John, thanks...

Wow. I'm not quite sure what to do with that one. I've gotten used to getting hate mail. Thank you.

And I'm working on the book. Really. The rough's almost done. I don't know how you people do this.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Hate mail? Not from me! By the time we meet in person I'll be going all fan girl on you.

Thanks for another great issue, Sandra. You and all the team. I'd say more, but I'm off to get some reading done.

Vince Keen... Hmm, it's snappy, for sure, but it sounds like I should be an ex-Navy SEAL or something.

Sandra Ruttan said...

James and Trace, glad you guys like the issue. And thanks for spreading the word.

"it sounds like I should be an ex-Navy SEAL or something."

You mean you aren't? I also heard a rumour about MI6...

Very cool issue, Sandra. It gets bigger every time. Especially loved the interviews (haven't read the stories yet).

Sandra Ruttan said...

Glad you liked the interviews Daniel - they were a lot of fun to do!
