Out of the Gutter 2
I have been under a lot of stress lately because of a situation that is out of my control, and consequently I've been unable to concentrate on any one thing for a sustained period of time. Thank God issue 2 of Out of The Gutter arrived today. I'm free to pick it up and flip around to anything that catches the attention of my poor, fevered brain. OOTG 2 looks a little more polished than the first outing, and it's got a new flash fiction section, and whores. There are a lot of whores in this issue, as editor Matthew Louis is quick to point out in his intro. Don't see how that can be a bad thing. Oh, and John Rickards, in case you were wondering, is going straight to hell when he dies.
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.
