Brian Thornton

I'm a Seattle-based writer and occasional editor. My most recent fiction project was editing an anthology of West Coast-set crime stories entitled West Coast Crime Wave, released by BSTSLLR, Inc. on October 17. My fiction has appeared in such venues as Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, the late, lamented BULLET UK and the Akashic Books anthology Seattle Noir. I'm also the author of several works of non-fiction, including a piece on Ross MacDonald that appeared in the anthology A Hell of a Woman: an Anthology of Female Noir, books such as Honest Abe: 101 Little-Known Truths About Abraham Lincoln (Adams Media 2010), and The Book of Bastards: 101 Scoundrels and Scandals from the World of Politics and Power (Adams Media 2010).

West Coast Crime Wave is now available for both Kindle and Nook!
