"I Spy: A Writer Remembers Espionage Magazine"

Sometime around the middle of 2017, my friend Michael Bracken was asked to write an essay about the long-lamented Espionage magazine for Richard Krauss' excellent twice-a-year publication, The Digest Enthusiast. Michael said he'd be happy to do it, but recommended that Richard ask me, instead, since I had more of a history with Espionage.

I was happy to write a piece for DE, and Richard really played it up, with my name prominently displayed on the cover of Issue #7 and almost a page of news about my recent publications and a photo of me with my "Noir at the Bar" sword at the front of the book. The article itself is profusely illustrated, and immediately after it there's a review of the first issue of Wildside Press' Black Cat Mystery Magazine, including paragraphs about each of my two contributions, "Eb and Flo" and "The ABCs of Murder."
