We've made A.B.'s Anthology Corner!

Down under cop turned gritty crime writer, A.B. Patterson, include ECR among some pretty heavy hitters in the indie anthology world. 

Check out all of the great independent titles here.

AB Patterson is truly an officer and a gentleman. His growing COPS WRITING CRIME Group is pretty awe inspiring to say the least. ECR recommends reading, HARRY'S WORLD

A review of this wonderful book is on the way.


Our pulp brothers Broadswords & Blasters were gracious enough to write up our Debut Issue. And they were completely honest. Thanks for the candor Matt Gomez!

You can read Matt's review here.

While we are on the subject. ECR has been quiet for the past few weeks. We've been busy reading submissions as well as reading Broadswords & Blasters. Look out for an overview review of BS&B's catalog coming soon!
