New Spinetingler

The new issue of Spinetingler is up. Since my site isn’t uploading to Crimespot these days I hope some of you guys will help spread the word, as there’s lots of great stuff in this issue. You can follow this link for the PDF download and table of contents.

Or take the direct links below for the stories, interviews, reviews, website features, a sampler of Harrogate 2007 and a very special article.

I asked blogger and author Sela Carsen to give us some insight on the romance genre. Crime fiction readers and authors regularly toss out the ‘we’re discriminated against’ mantra when snubbed for literary fiction by reviewers and major awards. But are we any better, or do we, in turn, snub our noses at romance? Great article.

Anyway, no sooner are we done one than it’s time to catch up on the editing and reviewing submissions for the next one. The fact that so many of you look forward to each issue makes it all worthwhile – we appreciate it, as do the talented authors we’re featuring.
