The Strand Magazine Twentieth Anniversary Collector’s Issue: Fiction by Mickey Spillane, Max Allan Collins Plus an exclusive with the Charles Todd writing team…

(To celebrate twenty years of publishing The Strand, we’re releasing a new Mike Hammer mystery, as well as short stories by John Floyd, Bonnie MacBird, Olaf Kroneman, David McVey, and an interview with the Charles Todd writing team. And fans of Ernest Hemingway will be stoked to read Terry Mort’s analysis of Hemingway’s long road to Paris. We also have an expanded review section with a young adult reading guide.)

Drawing on the notes left behind by the late, great Mickey Spillane, Max Allan Collins has Mike Hammer on a deeply personal case, a prequel of sorts called “Tonight, My Love.” John Floyd, in his eighteenth story for The Strand, sounds a cautionary note about snitching on a criminal in “Lucian’s Cadillac.” The multitalented writer, actor and producer Bonnie MacBird gives Lady Hilda—from the Arthur Conan Doyle story “The Adventure of the Second Stain”—a chance to explain herself in “Lady Hilda Revealed.” In “Milquetoast,” Olaf Kroneman shows how being a jerk can prove hazardous to one’s health. And David McVey’s “MacKenzie’s Artisan Ghost Train” will have you thinking twice about spooky amusement park attractions. Also, Terry Mort gives us the scoop on the real-life events that led up to Ernest Hemingway’s World War II short story “A Room on the Garden Side,” published for the first time in the last issue of The Strand. And we have the distinct pleasure of sharing a conversation with the mother-son writing team Charles and Caroline Todd. This wonderful duo, better known as Charles Todd, has skillfully created a hugely successful sub-genre in the form of the World War I mystery.

(The Strand Magazine: Unpublished Ernest Hemingway Short Story, also fiction by John Floyd, David Marcum and Elizabeth Creith and an exclusive interview with Jo Nesbø)

In our 55th issue, we’re proud to present an unpublished short story by Ernest Hemingway titled “A Room on the Garden Side.” The short story was set at the Ritz Hotel in Paris and is narrated by a man named Robert, who is also referred to as “Papa.” It paints a vivid sketch of soldiers tired from war, yet hopeful for the future. Hemingway scholar Kirk Curnutt provides an afterward, which looks at the historical and biographical context of this gem.

Among our other short stories in this issue, David Marcum challenges Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson with seemingly supernatural drawings in “The Problem of the Hindhead Minister.” John Floyd pairs a love-struck mechanic with a small-town femme fatale in “Foreverglow.” And in “To Talk to Freddie,” Elizabeth Creith sounds a warning to those who disregard closed signs on storefronts.

It’s our great pleasure to also share in this issue an exclusive interview with Jo Nesbø. The talented polymath offers his insights about playing soccer, writing, the banality of evil, Harry Hole, and the rich literary tradition of Norway.

We also have the scoop on the nominees for the tenth annual Strand Critics Awards. Lifetime Achievement Award winners Jonathan Gash and J.A. Jance both craft novels destined to become classics. More importantly, both are kind, generous, and great ambassadors for the world of crime writing.

We have book reviews of the latest mysteries, as well as a comprehensive summer audiobook list. You’re sure to find something to occupy you on those long road trips with the family. Our reviews this issue feature the latest novels by Walter Mosley, P.D. James, Joe R. Lansdale, Linwood Barclay, Jenny Milchman, and Linda La Plante.

The Strand Magazine continues to bring our readers the best in fiction, interviews with authors, book and audiobook reviews. In the past nine years we’ve featured unpublished works by writers ranging from Mark TwainJohn SteinbeckF. Scott FitzgeraldRaymond Chandler, H.G. WellsAgatha ChristieDashiell HammettTennessee Williams, and Joseph Heller .
