The May edition of THE BIG THRILL is here!

In our May issue, Christopher Golden tells how he crafts a frightening story while keeping the characters real. We find out what’s most important to Sara Paretsky and how Jeffery Deaver builds his roller-coaster stories. Other essential lessons are learned in interviews with William Lasher, Brendan Reichs, and Alan Jacobson. We dive into the work of Kati Hiekkapelto of Finland in “International Thrills,” and Mike Nicol talks about the “deep state” in “African Scene.”

In “Author Guided Tour,” J. H. Bográn takes us to New Orleans, and in “Debut SpotlightLynDee Walker chats with Jill Orr.

Other amazing authors in this issue include Radha Vatsal, Sandra Block, Rick Reed, Candace Robb, Karen Harper, Lisa Preston, David Healey, and many more.
