Crime is a community affair in EQMM’s September/October 2017 issue, and members of the EQMM community won’t want to miss “Bunker Hill Blues,” the next installment in Paul D. Marks’s Readers Award winning series set in L.A., or “Phantomwise: 1972,” a haunting new tale by master Joyce Carol Oates. On a changing NYC block, in “e-Golem,” S.J.
