A Brief Note
I've had an extremely busy weekend, traveling, seeing friends I don't get to see very often and going to job interviews. As a result, I'm functioning on no sleep, and I haven't looked at the Internet for the last couple of days. I feel completely out of the loop. No email. No Fark. No Crimespot. Funny how something that didn't exist when I was growing up now seems essential. Anyway, I've got nothing really interesting to say about crime fiction or anything else, and probably won't until I've had some sleep. I did notice, however, that J. Kingston Pierce over at The Rap Sheet, has started posting the answers he got as part of his one book project, where he asked people to write a little something about an overlooked piece of crime fiction. I've learned quite a lot reading it, and my contribution might show up there some time this week.
Welcome to the Indie Crime Blog. As the name implies, this blog is dedicated to reviews of crime fiction published by independent presses. There are many books published every year that seem to be ignored for a variety of reasons. The books sections of newspapers are getting smaller. Bookstores give more shelf space to more established authors. I could go on, but you get it.My intent is to review books both old and new in the hopes that some deserving writers and worthy publishers will gain some exposure.
