Well, it’s finally here–Switchblade Magazine, Issue 11
I’ve got a story in this one that is kind of a departure from my usual style–by which I mean it’s not SF/F/Horror but Crime Fiction–a new genre for me. “Whatever Lola Wants” is the title and it’s the story of a man backed into a corner who sees only one way out. I tried to capture the feel of Pulp Crime, with an unnamed first person narrator, a mysterious figure from his past, and a desperate crime of cold passion.
It must have worked well enough for Switchblade to buy it. I really want to find out how the crime fiction market takes to it, that’s going to be the real test.
