Top Ten Fantasy Crime Novels

Oct 09, 2017 in Books, Guest Posts

Let’s face it: we love crime stories, and this holds just as true in the genre of fantasy fiction as it does in contemporary thrillers, mysteries, and non-fiction. Sometimes we’re hoping for the cop, the detective, or the private investigator to hunt down that rogue necromancer; sometimes we’re rooting for the clever thief to pull […]

Denise Mina on What Really Happened in the Peter Manuel Case

May 23, 2017 in Guest Posts

Manuel is a legend in Glasgow. People still whisper about him. The ITV drama In Plain Sight tells the story of how he was caught and tried and hung, but if you want to know why he still lingers in our collective imagination, you have to listen to the pensioners. I had no choice but to […]

I Worked for a Duck

Apr 13, 2017 in Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors

Once upon a time, in the early 1970s, I worked for a duck. He was a nice duck and owned a flower business. What he did was he hired people like me, and other long-hairs and down and outs to stand on street corners in Austin, Texas and sell flowers. Ducks make nice employers. People […]

Somebody Knows The Secret

Mar 02, 2017 in Guest Posts, Writing

We asked Ayelet Gundar-Goshen, author of Waking Lions (out now from Little, Brown and Company!) to tell us how her riveting new thriller came to be. A middle-class doctor hits an unnamed refugee and leaves him to die by the side of the road. That’s not exactly the beginning of a romantic comedy. But when […]

A Soundtrack for Walk Away

Jan 31, 2017 in Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors, Music

Whenever I’m working up a new book, whether it’s during the concept phase or during outlining, I start making a playlist to go with it. Eventually I start calling it a “soundtrack,” but it’s really only a playlist. I can only imagine how much I’d have to pay in licensing fees to make an honest-to-goodness […]

A Letter of Introduction from Federico Axat

Dec 06, 2016 in Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors

I am writing these lines a long time after the last page of Kill the Next One. The book is no longer the same, and I am no longer the same. The life of a book in the outside world commences with the word “fin,” and a number of things have happened since then: translations, […]

Ruler of the Night: Malvern’s Bizarre Water-Cure Clinic

Nov 11, 2016 in Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors

David Morrell’s Ruler of the Night is set on the harrowing, fogbound streets of 1855 London. A gripping Victorian mystery/thriller, its vivid historical details come from years of research.

A Soundtrack for The Highway Kind

Oct 19, 2016 in Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors, Music, Short Stories

It was a thrill and an honor to work with such an exceptional group of writers for The Highway Kind, and, as music plays such a vital role to the theme and mood of the book I wanted to put together a soundtrack that captured its eccentric spirit. What I didn’t want was a collection […]
