The James Deans resissued
Busted Flush Press has reissued Reed Farrel Coleman's The James Deans, a novel that won Shamus, Barry and Anthony awards, received boatloads of critical praise and then disappeared without much notice by the wider world. The reissue alone is nice, but David Thompson has added some bang for the buck, including two short stories featuring Moe Prager, a foreward by Michael Connelly, an afterword by Coleman and an excerpt from the forthcoming Coleman/ Ken Bruen collaboration Tower. If you're going to reissue a book, this is how you do it.
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.
