Jeffrey Marks joins Mystery Scene

Jeffrey Marks, who has been writing book and magazine criticism in the mystery world for many years, is joining Mystery Scene in the role of consulting editor.

“Jeff has an extremely wide-ranging knowledge of the mystery genre and

a lot of great ideas for developing the magazine,” said Mystery Scene’s

editor Kate Stine in a statement. “He’s going to add even more depth to our

outstanding team of reviewers, writers and critics.”

Marks is likely best known for his biography of Craig Rice, WHO WAS THAT LADY? and for ATOMIC RENAISSANCE: WOMEN MYSTERY WRITERS OF THE 1940s and 1950s. He’s currently working on a biography of notable writer and critic Anthony Boucher. He is certainly an excellent addition to the magazine, and congratulations go out to Marks.
