Return of the Genre Zombie
Remember when Ursula K. LeGuin responded to a negative review of Michael Chabon's The Yiddish Policeman's Union by writing about the genre zombie rising from the grave to terrify critics? Well, someone has come up with a suitably pulpy cover for the story. You can go here to download the cover and Leguin's writing as a PDF chapbook.
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.
