MYSTERY SCENE #118 ~ 2011 WINTER ISSUE!

MYSTERY SCENE #118 ~ 2011 WINTER ISSUE!

PER EDITOR KATE STIEN:

Hi everyone,

We've just finished up Winter Issue #118, which should be hitting newsstands and mailboxes early next week.

In the new issue, author Robert Crais discusses his latest Elvis Cole and Joe Pike novel, The Sentry, and Jill Paton Walsh talks about the challenges of continuing Dorothy L. Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries. Also, Lawrence Block recalls his friend Evan Hunter (aka Ed McBain), Kevin Burton Smith nominates Kalinda Sharma from The Good Wife as the "Best 'Tec on TV," and you won't want to miss the latest and final installment of our Book Collecting series.

We also sit down for a chat with Steve Hockensmith, author of the Holmes on the Range adventures about two cowpoke brothers turned detectives. A special online exclusive review of The World's Greatest Sleuth, which we're sharing with you first, appears in this newsletter.

And for your first look exclusive on March's Writers on Reading essay author Simon Tolkien weighs in on John le Carré's classic, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

Last but not least, Publisher Brian Skupin and I will both be attending Left Coast Crime March 24-27 in Santa Fe, New Mexico later this month. If you're also in town, please stop and say hello!

Sincerely,
Kate Stine
Editor-in-Chief
