My friend Jeremy and I have launched a new online magazine of crime and noir fiction called
...that's right, The Big Click.
First issue features fiction from Ken Bruen and Anonymous-9, a new column by Tom Piccirilli, and an interview with Joe R. Lansdale.
Our business model is simple: we dole out the content online over the course of weeks for people who wish to read for free—come back and click an ad next week too!—and also offer the entire magazine immediately for e-readers for the low price of $2.99. This allows us to pay our writers, a rarity for online crime fiction magazines.
Please check us out. We're not open to over the transom submissions as of yet, but I'd like to hear from my old WestConn friends and colleagues if they have something suitable. There are guidelines on the site.
