Each June, International Crime Month is a celebration of international crime fiction. Four of America’s most prominent independent publishers—Grove Atlantic, Akashic Books, Melville House, and Europa Editions—have joined forces this time to bring this compelling genre to a wider North American audience. International Crime Month, June 2014, highlights new titles from Akashic’s city-based “Noir” series, Europa’s World Noir imprint, Grove Atlantic’s Mysterious Press and Atlantic Monthly Press imprints, and Melville House’s International Crime series.
Eighty independent bookstores in the U.S. have signed on to the initiative and will be distributing our International Crime Month magazine and stocking the titles detailed within its pages. Click here to read the magazine online and learn more about the indie bookstores.
The magazine is packed with original short fiction, interviews, conversations and profiles from/with/about featured authors. I’m dead chuffed to see Christopher Brookmyre and Mark Billingham getting some ink on this side of the Atlantic.
