A blog dedicated to reviewing crime novels published by independent presses everywhere.
Tuesday, April 8, 2008
I was doing a little surfing, looking for something interesting for the Wednesday paperback cover, and I ran across Crimeculture, a site that features academic articles on crime fiction. It's been around a while, so it's probably old news to most of you, but I somehow managed to miss it entirely. It has articles on many topics, ranging from the cultural significance of paperback postwar American crime fiction to Paul Auster's New York trilogy. This promises to be interesting.
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.
