For many of us, our introduction to mystery began either by watching a detective show on TV, or when we fell in love with characters like Phillip Marlow and the Continental Op in old books. This is the white knight, the only one with morals in the story, the one person who will set the world right.

Come with us and explore new takes on the traditional PI story, whether they're old school and solving a current day crime or sent on a case far away from the city into Appalachia. And enjoy some historic PIs as well, all with voice and perspectives you've never seen before.

Enjoy issue #1 of MCM - and be ready for more to come!

Contains my story "A Long Shot Worth Betting On."

A father's sins fall under a multitude of transgressions. Hiding family secrets. Stealing intellectual property. Being an alcoholic. Or even demanding a daughter marry for business, not love.

These sins and others, as well as how they effect the people around them, are explored in issue four of MCM.

Sins of the Father-So Criminal, it's Good.

Contains my story "Housewarming Gift."

Book Cover: Mickey Finn Vol. 1: 21st Century Noir

Mickey Finn: 21st Century Noir is a crime-fiction cocktail that will knock readers into a literary stupor.

Contributors push hard against the boundaries of crime fiction, driving their work into places short crime fiction doesn’t often go, into a world where the mean streets seem gentrified by comparison and happy endings are the exception rather than the rule. And they do all this in contemporary settings, bringing noir into the 21st century.

Like any good cocktail, Mickey Finn is a heady mix of ingredients that packs a punch, and when you’ve finished reading every story, you’ll know that you’ve been “slipped a Mickey.”

The twenty contributors, some of today’s most respected short-story writers and new writers making their mark on the genre, include J.L. Abramo, Ann Aptaker, Trey R. Barker, Michael Bracken, Barb Goffman, David Hagerty, James A. Hearn, David H. Hendrickson, Jarrett Kaufman, Mark R. Kehl, Hugh Lessig, Steve Liskow, Alan Orloff, Josh Pachter, Steve Rasnic Tem, Mikal Trimm, Bev Vincent, Joseph S. Walker, Andrew Welsh-Huggins, and Stacy Woodson.
