Crimes of Identity

With Harrogate International Crime Writing Festival just around the corner--it runs from July 20 to 23--the Comma Press has announced the publication of ID: Crimes of Identity, the new British Crime Writers’ Association anthology.

ID: Crimes of Identity is edited by veteran crime writer and lawyer Martin Edwards (Urge to Kill, The Coffin Trail). Among the book’s contributors are Natasha Cooper, Mat Coward, Edward D. Hoch, Peter Lovesey, Stuart Pawson, and Danuta Reah, all writing on the topic of identity and the “who” in “whodunit.”

This new anthology will be launched on July 20 at 5 p.m. at the Old Swan Hotel as part of the opening event for Harrogate.

While we’re on the topic, submissions are now open for next year’s CWA anthology. That book will be called MO: Crimes of Practice. According to Literature North West, the anthology is looking for “stories that deal with not just the criminal’s modus operandi, but also the detective’s MO, and for that matter, the media’s MO, the judicial system’s MO and so on.” Full submission details are available at the Literature North West Web site.
