Elizabeth Zelvin reports:

The November/December issue of Ellery Queen is out, with, I'm proud to say, my name on the cover along with Charlaine Harris's  and Doug Allyn's and my story, "Death Will Help You Imagine," inside, right after Bill Pronzini's. It's well worth the wait of almost 20 months from submission to print to be keeping such great company, especially since it was accepted way back in 2016 and I got paid for it shortly afterward.

SMFS Member Publication News: Peter DiChellis

My crime-horror piece “Stegmann’s Basement” is free to read at Spelk Fiction.

Storyline: After a botched robbery a young criminal flees into a creepy basement.

For those not familiar with this market, Spelk is a popular U.K.-based site that accepts flash up to 500 words (all genres, literary). Non-paying, but seems to yield wide exposure, including via social media.
