At the cutting edge of crime fiction, Mystery Weekly Magazine presents original short stories by the world’s best-known and emerging mystery writers.
The stories we feature in our monthly issues span every imaginable subgenre, including cozy, police procedural, noir, whodunit, supernatural, hardboiled, humor, and historical mysteries. Evocative writing and a compelling story are the only certainty.
Get ready to be surprised, challenged, and entertained--whether you enjoy the style of the Golden Age of mystery (e.g., Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle), the glorious pulp digests of the early twentieth century (e.g., Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler), or contemporary masters of mystery.
Our cover feature, “Lucid” by Bill Kelly, is a femme fatale tale dealing with mystery, memory and murder.
“Only The Desperate Come Here” by Michael Mallory: People only come to attorney Scott Turley when there's no other choice. So when a confessed murderer with deep pockets and a powerful family retains him, he sees it as a big payday … not realizing the extent of the price to him.
“The Odds Are Good” by Josh Pachter: When Ginny Krause heads north to escape a bad second marriage, she finds Alaska full of surprises.
In “A Grave Mistake” by Rachel Amphlett a walk in the woods takes a dark turn for Ben.
In “The Power Of The Dog” by Leone Ciporin a girl wearing a dog costume is performing at a county fair with a kindergarten class, when a gunman rushes the stage. Can her costume help her save the children?
“Bone Soup” by Michael Bracken: Sheriff Sherri Fine won her election by mistake, and now she's faced with a cold case that pits her against the local political machine.
“A Little Housecleaning” by David Bart: Wade comes to understand the phrase: “The chickens have come home to roost.”
