Crescent Blues

From 1998-2005 I had the privilege of editing one of the web’s first nonfiction websites devoted to genre fiction and all the geeky goodness that goes along with it. From fantasy to horror, romance to mystery–and anything else that looked interesting–the talented writers of Crescent Blues covered it all. I wrote a lot for the magazine, but CB had so many great writers, you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t check out their contributions, too. So I’m just going to give you the link to the archive’s table of contents. Enjoy!
