Brit Grit Alley features news and updates on what's happening down British crime fiction's booze and blood soaked alleyways.

By Paul D. Brazill

Hola! Thrillers, Killers n Chillers has been a consistently cracking Brit Grit  ezine since it started out in  2009. Editors Col Bury, Mat Hilton, Lily Childs and David Barber have published all manner of hard hitting fiction from across the globe. Well, at the moment they're having a Halloween competition. Here's what Col has to say:
'Just a heads up that we're holding a Halloween short story comp' on Thrillers, Killer 'n' Chillers - deadline October 22nd (midnight UK).

The editors are each doing a story too: Matt's and mine are already up, with Dave's and Lily's to follow before the top three comp' entries. The winner gets 4 x eBooks (written by the editors).

So, if you're a writer, submit, and, whoever you are, pop over and check out the stories. And be sure to have a sniff around the archives, too.
And there's more ...  Richard Godwin is currently committing some Atrocious Acts over at All Due Respect.There's a shed load of tasty hard boiled fiction in the archives there, too.
Vengeance Wears Black by Seumas Gallacher is free for the next couple of days.
