Keith Rawson, Cameron Ashley, and Liam Jose have united forces to bring back Crime Factory, and issue #1 hit the web early early this morning. 108 pages of fiction, essays, reviews, and quotes from favorite authors like David Goodis, Charlie Huston, Ken Bruen, Jason Starr, and more. The lineup for this debut issue is astonishing, and it makes a strong impression with big promises for the future. And judging from the quality of this first issue, big things are definitely on the horizon for Crime Factory. I'm still going through this first issue and I'm already anticipating Crime Factory #2.
Among the authors included in the first issue: Patti Abbott, Cameron Ashley, Frank Bill, Ken Bruen, Jimmy Callaway, Hilary Davidson, Peter Dragovich, Gordon Harries, Liam Jose, Adrian McKinty, Nerd of Noir, Scott Phillips, Keith Rawson, Kieran Shea, Steve Weddle, and Dave White.
All I can say is, "Damn." You don't mess with a crew like that.
