Restarting the Factory

As promised back in November, Crime Factory--originally a print magazine out of Australia, edited by David Honeybone--has been reborn, sort of. Now it’s Crimefactory, a Web-based PDF-format publication filled with short stories, features, and reviews having to do with crime/mystery fiction and the people who bring it to us.

Issue No. 1 includes an excerpt of a new novel (Killer) by Ken Bruen, Scott Phillips’ tribute to Charles Willeford’s often funny characters, Adrian McKinty’s look back at his work on Fifty Grand, Rap Sheet contributor Gordon Harries’ analysis of Dashiell Hammett’s Red Harvest, and new short fiction by Dave White, Hilary Davidson, Frank Bill, and Steve Weddle.

A good start for the pub, all in all. If you’re interested in contributing to Crimefactory’s growth, here are the guidelines.
