IJ Parker, one of my virtual crime author friends, appears in the November 2012 issue of the Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine. Confessions features her historical Japanese detective, Akitada, the protagonist in her novels.
This is, as Joe Biden would say, a "big f$#%ing deal." AHMM, along with Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, is at the very top of the crime fiction magazine heap. Only the best crime writers appear in its pages. I'll be lucky if I'm ever considered in my lifetime. IJ's been at it much longer than me, and even she had to wait a year to hear back on her query.
It's the real deal, people.
I got a heads up from IJ about the issue over on CrimeSpace. But it was still a thrill to pick up the issue at Barnes & Noble.
P.S. The issue is on stands through Oct. 2, so don't wait to get yours.
