The Strand Magazine

For almost 20 years, The Strand Magazine has been America’s leading print publication for readers passionate about great mystery writing. Each quarterly issue delivers gripping tales of suspense—from hard-boiled detective stories to cozies—by some of the today’s most renowned mystery writers.  The Strand Magazine publishes never-before-published works by literary masters such as Dashiell Hammett, Joseph Heller, James M. Cain, Mark Twain, Tennessee Williams, and H.G. Wells, as well as new fiction by authors such as Alexander McCall Smith, Michael Connelly, Joseph Finder, and Jeffery Deaver. The Strand Magazine also features in-depth interviews with accomplished authors and editors in the world of fiction and mystery publishing. And the magazine’s insightful review section critiques everything from Sherlock Holmes pastiches to the latest mysteries and thrillers, as well as anthologies, mystery audiobooks, and videos.
