Book Description

Our tenth issue begins with a tale of violence and betrayal, "Late Night on Route 17" by Libby Cudmore. Have you ever caught yourself wondering what true love really looks like? Well, read this and find out. Come to think of it, our second story, "The Lost City of Emory Winters" by Christina Scholz, is also about violence, betrayal, and love... though maybe not in the same order, or in the same proportions. In the middle we have Barry Graham's column about when acting and writing transcend what they are, and finish with capsule reviews of the best new crime fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Won't Be Sorry... March 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The Big Click is brand-new. It's a crime magazine. They have a nice-looking website and a distribution model I like: you can buy the whole issue right now, or you can read a different article or story each week for free as it's released. I read the first story for free before buying the issue, and I always encourage people to do that when they can. I picked up the issue on the strength of that first story, and I'm not sorry I did, I'll tell you that.

Angel of Hospitality lands somewhere in the 3.5-4 range out of 5, if we want to play the numbers game. I love the voice author Ken Bruen uses, the nontraditional sentence structure, the plot--everything. The one part that grated on me--you might not even notice, and I can't say much without spoiling the piece--has to do with a way of ending stories and a narrative perspective that just don't match up to me. But Bruen totally saved the story for me with everything else he did.

Triangulation by Anonymous-9 is about a middle-aged woman who hatches an elaborate scheme in order to show her gullible friend the error of her ways. It's definitely a modern story, as opposed to Angel, which could have happened fifty years ago or yesterday. It's told from the perspective of all three of its characters and ends on a believable, satisfying note.

The issue is fleshed out with a creative essay by Tom Piccirilli and an interview with Joe Lansdale, conducted by Piccirilli.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Exciting New Source for Noir! March 15, 2012

I was really impressed by the premiere issue of THE BIG CLICK. The fiction was really good and just the right length each time. One gets the feeling that anything is possible in this little mag, as long as it is dark and excellent. I can't wait for the next issue!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for more April 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A new journal that has started off brilliantly, and will surely make a big impact on the world of noir! I loved the unique voice of Tom Picarilli's story and the totally unlooked for twist if twist you could call it. I am sad to say I have never read him before but that will definitely change! Ken Bruen is an old favourite and his story doesn't disappoint either, I find his language getting more and more interesting, brushstrokes of dialog with a careening plotline that I am entirely jealous of. And the interview with Joe Lansdale? Anonymous 9? Like chocolate cake on my birthday...so get yourself a copy

4.0 out of 5 stars About Damn Time March 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Other genres being more than well-served by quality indie online efforts, crime fiction has waited a long time for likes of, say, Chizine or Clarkesworld. Whether The Big Click is that remains to be seen, but Mamatas and Tolbert's effort is off to a rousing start.

The ebook version could use a clickable TOC, and the stories a little short as yet, but from vets like Bruen and Pic and newcomers as welcome Anonymous-9, very welcome. Will keep buying and reading.
