  1. When I found The Strand magazine at an independent bookstore, on a recent trip to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, I was thrilled. I have been a long time fan of Mystery, hard boiled crime, and Noir, for a long time and find that the issue of The Strand magazine that I purchased had all of that and more. I had to have more issues. As soon as I returned to my home, in Vancouver, B.C. I went right to my computer to order a subscription. Not only am I looking forward to hours of reading entertainment, I recently completed a creative writing course where the instructor encouraged me to write more short stories. So I’m sure I will find the Blogs, and interviews very helpful. Who no’s, maybe one day you will be reading one of my short stories in The Strand,(I can dream, can’t I) Lol. Thanks, Strand.
