Meanwhile, other Thirteeners have also been busy. Catch up time:
Steve Finbow has a lot of new work out, including short fiction in Word Riot, Passages North, and Flash Fiction Magazine.
Grant Nicol's The Mistake is in the running for the 2016 Ngaio Marsh Award for New Zealand crime fiction. The longlist will be announced soon and the results at WORD literary festival in August.
"Once again Robert White proves himself to be one of the most intelligent and inventive crime writers around," says some guy or other about Robb White's latest, Waiting on a Bridge of Maggots.
Dark Passages Publishing - all flavours of crime novellas - is the latest branch of Ariana Den Bleykers publishing empire. They already have Trey Barker among their authors with plenty more great stuff coming soon.
Matt Phillips continues to take the crime world by storm - hate to say I told you so - with Bad Luck City from Near to the Knuckle's new crime novellas imprint.
Aidan Thorn has put together Paladins, a charity anthology featuring KA Laity and a whole host of Number Thirteen friends and favourites (Darren Sant, Ryan Bracha, Jason Beech, Keith Nixon and more, plus Aidan himself). Buy it for charity, read it for some of the best crime fiction authors writing today.
And Paul Brazill has plenty going on this year: his short collection The Last Laugh, and Other Shots of Noir is out May 1st from ADR, and Cold London Blues - the long anticipated follow-up to Brit Grit landmark Guns of Brixton - is already available for pre-order in paperback from Caffeine Nights.
Which gives everybody plenty to be going on with. Until next time, triskaidekaphilliacs...
