Unlimited access to The Dark City Crime & Mystery Magazine along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium stories
The Dark City Crime & Mystery Magazine is a quarterly magazine featuring crime and mystery stories with an emphasis on character and setting. We prize memorable writing and appreciate humor in our fiction. Recent stories have featured madness, revenge, murder-for-hire, and telling tales out of school. Citizens of The Dark City walk down ordinary streets, but have extraordinary lives (and sometimes deaths).
The fall 2019 issue of The Dark City Crime and Mystery Magazine features stories about a girl who relieves the pain of her childhood by the simple act of cutting, an old man with diabetes planning a new life by convicting his partner of attempted murder, an addict and bad husband who runs into a gang of gunmen, a teenage girl who plans to rob a relative, and a husband who takes revenge on his tyrannical wife by murdering her every day--in his journal. Welcome to the darker side of reality. Welcome to The Dark City.
