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