Brit Grit Alley

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 

The big news down Brit Grit Alley this week is a very important announcement from the people behind THRILLERS, KILLERS N CHILLERS, one of the best and most influential crime fiction ezines published over the last few years. TKNC- the brainchild of Matt Hilton along with Col Bury, Lee Hughes, Lilly Child and David Barber – has decided to call it a day. You can find a full statement as to why over here. The good news is that TKNC has a bastard offspring. THRILLS, KILLS N CHAOS is a flash fiction ezine edited by David Barber and you can find submission details and the like here.

Over at The Slaughterhouse, Richard Godwin has a natter with Craig Douglas about the Gloves Off anthology. And I have a chat with Craig’s co-editor Darren Sant here.

Martin Stanley has a short, sharp story called The Accident here; Tom Gillespie talks about a balanced writing diet here; Gareth Spark is over at Shotgun Honey with Regal King Size; Andrew Scorah’s latest high-octane thriller Jericho Blues is out now; McDroll reviews Keith Nixon’s cracking debut novel, The Fix; Steve Christie’s Good Deed is now available from Waterstones, and Matt Hilton has opened submissions for the second volume of Action- Pulse Pounding Tales. And I'm well chuffed that I've got a story in there

There'll be more carrryings on down Brit Grit Alley next week.
