AHMM Mar/Apr 2017

The big news in this second edition of AHMM’s new bi-monthly double-issue schedule—at least in my mind—is the appearance of Dale Berry’s seven-page comic. There isn’t any fanfare about it inside, but this must be the first time AHMM has ever run a comic. Kudos to the AHMM’s editors for mixing things up. I wonder what other readers will think…

Here’s the full contents:

Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine Jan/Feb 2017

AHMM Jan/Feb 2017

In a special note to subscribers Linda Landrigan writes: “Beginning with this January/February 2017 issue, AHMM will switch to a bimonthly publication schedule.” Six double issues a year allows more pages for special or expanded features, and defers a price increase for subscribers. “Note that you will still receive the same number of issue months that you have purchased.” She closes with, “Thank you for your continued support.”

At 192 pages the double-issue format is considerably more substantial than the old 112-page version. I hope the change is welcomed by subscribers and attracts new readers to the title. Below is the contents for this edition:
