Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine is the real deal when it comes to mystery fiction mags. It’s been in print since 1941, and it continues to maintain a newsstand presence to this day, along with digital editions. Stephen King even called it the best mystery magazine in the world. In the mystery/crime fiction universe, this is as top dog as it gets.
I was thrilled to receive a mention in the Blog Bytes column by Bill Crider, himself a cornerstone of the genre, in the September/October 2015 issue. Crider graciously highlights this website, CrimeFictionBook.com, writing, “Everything is presented with clarity and precision, so you don’t have to be an expert to understand it, although you might feel like one after you read it.”
This is an incredible honor, and I thank Crider for his kind words. I put a lot of time into this website and the book published by Writer’s Digest. This recognition means a lot to me.
I’ll be swinging by a bookstore to pick up a copy of the issue. Here are the pages I screen-grabbed from a digital edition with the comments. Be sure to show your support to EQMM by picking up an issue for yourself, too.
