The fall issue of the Strand will include a short story by H.G. Wells that has never been published before, titled “The Haunted Ceiling,” this hidden gem is part supernatural, part psychological and is rich in atmosphere. Our 50th issue will also feature a exclusive interview with the talented and prolific Walter Mosley, where the celebrated author of the Easy Rawlins series spoke about noir legends, the craft of writing, and what inspires him to write, as well as fiction by Craig Johnson, John Floyd, Jeffrey Pearce, and Larry Millet.
Edgar nominated author John M. Floyd has a story about which serves as a warning on accepting stolen goods with “Jackpot Mode.” We are very proud to publish a short story by Craig Johnson who has Sheriff Longmire confronting a madman in “Land of the Blind.” While our pastiche by Larry Millet has Sherlock Holmes and Watson take a journey across the pond to tackle a peculiar hound in “The Adventure of the American Drifter.” And Jeffrey Pearce in his first short story in The Strand tells a tale of greed, ghosts, and the macabre with “All Quiet Along the Potomac Tonight.” We also have an Unpublished H.G. Wells story.
In our exclusive interview with Walter Mosley, the bestselling author of scores of books spoke in depth about how he created one of the most iconic sleuths of this generation, his writing routine, and the authors who inspired him become a novelist.
