A couple of weeks ago, Cemetery Dance made a low-key announcement about a new book they’ll be publishing later this year: The Interrogator and Other Criminally Good Fiction edited by Martin H. Greenberg and Ed Gorman. It’s an unusual endeavor for the publisher on a couple of levels: 1) It’s an all-reprint anthology, and 2) it’s straight crime fiction as opposed to something with a supernatural twist.
Typical of a Cemetery Dance project, however, is its stellar table of contents. CD alumni David Morrell and Tom Piccirilli are represented alongside renowned thriller/noir authors such as Lee Child, Jeffery Deaver, Michael Connelly, and Don Winslow.
I’m excited to see Cemetery Dance branching out this way, and I hope it’s only the first of many noir/crime offerings they bring us. And who knows, maybe they can lure a few of these mystery writers over to the dark side….
