Amazon Description:

At the cutting edge of crime fiction, Mystery 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.


In this issue


Our cover feature is “Palomino Coal” by Doug Crandell: If the palomino gold was here in the stables, Dani would need to be patient, look for it everywhere. Maybe it would help her find her grandpa.


“On The Pad” by R.T. Lawton: During Prohibition, you could buy a bottle of booze from your local bootlegger or drop by a speakeasy for a couple of drinks. Or, you could just ask your family doctor to write you a prescription for a bottle of medical alcohol.


“First Arrest” by Jim Doherty: This is the story of a serendipitous turn on the trail. This is the story of Gus Hachette’s first arrest.


“Dance With The Dolly” by Gary Alan Ruse: In this modern cozy, a retired college librarian and her best friend get involved in a real-life murder mystery that becomes dangerous to them as well.


“Flight Control” by Jacob Aaron Reingold: A chance encounter between a woman and a man on a plane dredges up their war-torn past with dangerous implications for their futures.


“Cover Of The Moon” by Robert Mitchell: In the depression years of the 1930's a man returns home to learn his father may have been murdered by a local sheriff. This leads him on a trail of discovery to learn a shocking truth.


“In-Laws And Outlaws,” a You-Solve-It by John M. Floyd: Fran and Lucy accuse a thievin’ vegan.
