Mosley, Ziskin & More In Strand Magazine

strand magazine feb - may

Short fiction by hard-boiled maestro Walter Mosley (not that short, actually), plus a terrific interview with neo-noir author Don Winslow, who James Ellroy has labeled “the master of the dope war novel”.

And more: A short and dark delight by one of my absolute favorites, James W. Ziskin, author of the incredible Ellie Stone mystery series. I humbly confess that Ziskin’s series triggered (or perhaps validated) some of my initial thinking for my own ‘Stiletto Gumshoe’ work, suggesting that a female protagonist in the late 50’s/early 60’s could be every bit as intriguing as the more often deployed Roaring Twenties, Depression-era Thirties, Postwar Forties and early Fifties…and thank you Mr. Ziskin for that!

All that and more is in the new February – May 2019 issue of Strand Magazine, which I just picked up after work Monday.
