New Story in Mystery Magazine

The latest issue of Mystery Magazine, Canada's number one source for mystery, crime, and thriller stories, is out now and it features a brand new Mike tale. With "The Snake," readers will find out just how far an untrustworthy husband will go to get rid of his wife.

This piece is Mike's fourth appearance in the beloved Canadian periodical. The first came back in March of 2019 with the Midport Mystery story featuring his recurring protagonist Detective Molly Fetterly entitled "K. O'Connor." His second appearance was in September of that year with a follow-up Midport story "Burn," often regarded as one of his best mystery yarns, while the third, published in January of 2021, was his dark and twisted tale of revenge "Why Do They Have to Make it so Easy?"

Noir Magazine Dark Yonder Debuts

Dark Yonder, a brand new neo-noir magazine from the minds of crime fiction writers Eryk Pruitt and Katy Munger, officially celebrates its publication birthday. The dark and gritty magazine features Mike's "Perforation of a Moment," which also kicks off the publication as the lead story.

Pruitt, in the editor's statement of the magazine, stated, "Katy Munger and I planned to showcase eight authors in four issues per year. However, for this issue we received over 250 submissions and so many of them were top quality that we expanded this first collection to 10... It's hard to use one or two words to categorize these stories."
