Mystery Readers Journal: Changes in 2016 Themes


Changes in 2016 Mystery Readers Journal Themes

The response to the Mystery Readers Journal: Small Town Cops -- Call for Articles was overwhelming. We had so many essays, articles, and reviews that Kate Derie and I decided to split this theme issue into two issues.

So 2016 (Volume 32) themes are New York City Mysteries I, New York City Mysteries II; Small Town Cops I; Small Town Cops II. Themes in 2017: Midwest Mysteries; Murder in Wartime; and more to come. Possible 2017 themes: Big City Cops which will probably be two issues. Small Town Cops I (Volume 32:3) will be out in October.

Call for Articles:

Still time to write an author essay for Mystery Readers Journal: Small Town Cops II. Send by October 15 to janet@mysteryreaders.org

Oh how annoying, I'd love to try this although I have visited many small tows in thh USA I don't think my experiences would help em write anything like this, even with research - no time now. Perhaps another time, another theme and perhaps in England???? Pretty please. Good luck everyone. :)
