New Mystery Magazine Is Launched

Post date: Mar 22, 2013 1:57:17 PM

Darusha Wehm is the author of the sci-fi mystery novels Beautiful Red, Self Made, Act of Will, and The Beauty of Our Weapons, writing as M. Darusha Wehm. Her short fiction has appeared in publications such as Thaumatrope Magazine, Luna Station Quarterly, and Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine. A Canadian, Darusha is currently living in New Zealand aboard a sailboat in which she is sailing around the world. As if these weren’t enough accomplishments for one person, Darusha has embarked on a new venture, as editor of Plan B Magazine, a new e-zine devoted to mystery and crime short fiction — “cops, con artists, capers and killers,” as the web site says.

Plan B launched in early March with a short story by mystery author Gary Cahill, and will publish a new short story every two weeks until the end of August 2013. At that time, the 13 mystery and suspense stories will be published in an anthology. Among the writers featured will be well-published authors such as Derringer Award-winning writer Nick Andreychuk, Sara M. Chen, Laird Long, and yours truly.

Darusha wants to publish a quality magazine, and since she believes quality fiction deserves to be compensated, Plan B will be a paying market. But readers can enjoy the online stories for free.
