Spinetingler relaunch week

For the last month or so Spinetingler has been in the middle of a facelift and working in a live beta mode while doing so. This week is our "official" relaunch and we would like to invite everyone to stop by; we have a lot planned. We made a decision to shift away from issue-based publications and towards a continuous publication format. At the same time we wanted to split the mystery and crime fiction content off of the parent site, BSC Review, to give it room to breathe and bring it into greater relief.

Spinetingler will be debuting two brand new original short stories this week. For the next three months we will be featuring two brand new original stories a month and then we will switch to one new story a month.

Here is what you can look forward to for the next week at Spinetingler:

On Monday Spinetingler will post an original story by Hillary Davidson and we will kick off our annual Conversations with the Bookless series which is a continuation of last year's BSC Review series. The Conversations series will run on weekdays for the next couple of weeks.

On Tuesday we will have a review of this weeks episode of Justified and an exclusive interview with P.D. James.

On Wednesday we will be debuting a new weekly column that focuses on crime songs and we will be announcing all of the nominees for the 2010 Spinetingler Awards. The voting polls will open also.

On Thursday we have an article on Asian crime fiction and an exclusive article by Adrian McKinty.

On Friday we will publish the second original short story and we will have an exclusive interview with Robert Crais.

On Saturday we will be running two articles. The first is titled The Greater Bruen Mythos and the second is titled The Wire: The Feminine Equation.

On Sunday, in addition to our weekly wrap-up, our weekly coverage of Breaking Bad will continue.
