Art Taylor’s Fairy Tale

Black Cat Mystery Magazine No. 1

An excerpt from my review of Black Cat Mystery Magazine No. 1 from The Digest Enthusiast No. 7:

Neighborhoods age along with their denizens. As they change, not all their residents adapt, like William, in Art Taylor’s “Fairy Tale.” William don’t like the new flock of school kids hanging around all the time—their attitudes and their—his word—entitled behavior. He don’t like the word old neither. But his kids are grown and long gone, his wife’s passed on, and if you saw him, you’d be hard-pressed to avoid the “O” word. Taylor takes you inside the man’s head so you can feel his rising ire first hand. With nothing else to occupy his grey matter, William can’t help but pick at the things that irk him, staring out at the street in front of his house. Almost like he was looking for trouble.

Alan Orloff’s Getting Away

Black Cat Mystery Magazine No. 1

An excerpt from my review of Black Cat Mystery Magazine No. 1 from The Digest Enthusiast No. 7:

Alan Orloff offers the opening gambit in this issue with “Getting Away.” Lloyd Birnbaum runs a one-man travel agency. Has for years. He does book travel for the sake of the rubes, but relocation, along with fresh identities for his criminal clientele is where his real fortunes lie. Orloff is the author of several novels—mysteries and thrillers. He garnered an Agatha nomination in 2010, and a Kindle Scout award for Running From the Past, in 2015.

Black Cat Mystery Magazine No. 1An excerpt from my review of BCMM No. 1 from The Digest Enthusiast No. 7:

Editors John Gregory Betancourt and Carla Coupe welcome their readers to the first edition
of BCMM from their “The Cat’s Perch” introduction. “We won’t shy away from intense, dark fiction that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end. Just as we won’t turn down the next amateur detective in the finest Agatha Christie tradition. Storytelling matters most.”

Black Cat Mystery Magazine’s debut includes an impressive list of contributors, many that will be familiar to readers of those bimonthly digests from Penny Publications.
