I don't usually review short stories, but 80 pages is quite a decent short story. It borders on novella. …Continue

Howdy all

I thought I should introduce myself. I use the pen name Frank Gates. I am using the pen name to separate the two genres I now work in. I have an average publishing history; 50 short stories, 3 novels and I've edited a few publications.

This is my first step into Crime Fiction. I love books by Bob Morgan, Robert B Parker and John Case and more recently Richard Castle and I love the TV show as well. Castle and Supernatural are two shows I never fail to miss. But I loath CSI, NCIS LA (Miami and NY are ok), Numbers.

As I know zero about writing fiction I thought joining an active group on the subject might be a good idea.

I have a solid murder and I have worked backwards to find the who and the why. Now I need some clues, a location and a sleuth. Do I want to go third person or first person? Should I chuck it in and go back to the tried and true? Wow, that was a bout of 'fear of the unknown' better stay away from that.

Anyway, my name is Frank Gates, and I'm a beginner crime writer. Nice to meet you.

Hi Frank,


I'm one of the editors for Noir Nation, and I would love to get some stories from Japan for Issue 2  (Issue 1 will be available Sept 1, 2011).  Looking for short stories and graphic stories (comics).  Maybe you have some, and could also help spread the word among Japanese writers and readers?  We start reading for issue 2 on Oct 1.


Thank you,
