Issue 5 of Crime Factory is now available on the web here.
Factory management tell me there’s been a few technical problems with this issue, hence the delay. But the wait has been well worth it.
In addition to the usual high quality fiction offerings, issue 5 has some great features and reviews on hardboiled and noir crime fiction and film.
And while I’ve got your attention did I mention that yours truly is among the contributors. Issue 5 includes my interview with one of the veterans of the Australian crime writing scene, Garry Disher. Garry talks about the difference between writing hard-boiled fiction and police procedurals, why after a ten plus-year break he decided to write another Wyatt book and the state of crime fiction in Australia.
