In our current issue: A previously unpublished James Thurber story, mysteries by Jeffery Deaver, Max Allan Collins, Mickey Spillane, and Renée Knight, as well as interviews with Heather Graham and Sherlock’s Mark Gatiss . . .
A previously unpublished James Thurber story headlines our spring issue; while in our interview section Heather Graham talks vampires, romance, and the lure of history; and Sherlock’s Mark Gatiss gives us a behind-the-scenes look at his hit TV show—Sherlock—and talks about what it’s like to work with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
James Thurber’s previously unpublished story, “How Law and Order Came to Aramie,” published here, in The Strand, for the first time, is a western spoof, featuring Thurber’s ironic humor and trademark wit, as well as a couple of gun-slinging bullies, a peculiar sheriff, and the promise of a good ol’ fashioned showdown.
In addition to all that, the incomparable Jeffery Deaver has Lincoln Rhyme on the case in “The Deliveryman,” while Renée Knight takes us across the pond to the UK for the bittersweet, mystical tale “Faithful.” The ever-prolific Max Allan Collins, drawing on the notes of the late, great Mickey Spillane, brings tough-guy Mike Hammer back in “A Dangerous Cat,” and O’Neil De Noux takes us back to steamy 1947 New Orleans with a hardboiled tale complete with wisecracking PI, smoldering love interest, and jealous husband in “Effect on Men.” We also have insightful reviews of the latest mystery books, audiobooks, YA books, and DVDs
