The torrid summer days are a great time to kick back and read, and our July/August issue is full of hot new fiction. From flaring tempers to the spiciest chicken wings to a world baked by global warming, the characters in this issue brave it all. A food-truck owner with the hottest wings in town and his off-duty security guard–customer deal with some unwanted heat in Robert Mangeot’s “Let It Burn.” Jay Carey brings us another dystopian procedural set in a future Florida ravaged by global warming in “We Frequent the Moon Bar.” The heat of an office romance drives characters to make bad decisions in Cathryn Grant’s “Serious Damage.” And some minor league ball players are filling their off-hours by making an amateur film when they learn of a teammate’s drowning in Chris Muessig’s “The Making of Velveteen Dream.” Meanwhile, a gathering of southeast Asian drug warlords proves difficult for a city-bred teen in R. T. Lawton’s “Merit Making.” A pit stop at a lonely diner puts small-town Mississippi sheriff Ray Douglas and mystery writer Jenny Parker close to the scene of a murder in John M. Floyd’s whodunit “Trail’s End.” O’Neil De Noux returns in noirish form with a story about the 1940s New Orleans PI Lucien Kaye, “The Magnolia Murders.” Joseph D’Agnese offers an unusual Sherlockian tale, with Mycroft and Mrs. Hudson facing off in “A Respectable Lady.” And a former fur trapper struggles with settled life—and a murder—in Eric Rutter’s “Blood Debt.” We warmly welcome two authors new to our pages: Bev Vincent with a tale of an unlikely superhero in “Pain-Man,” and Susan Breen introducing novice PI Maggie Dove as she tackles her first big case in “The Countess of Warsaw.” Finally, Steve Liskow scores his second Black Orchid Novella Award with “Look What They’ve Done to My Song, Ma,” which once again visits the Detroit music scene for a new mystery involving that hot new band, Promise.
