Alex Segura Crimespree Interview By Dave White

I hate hot weather. Give me winter and snow any day over the humid, sweaty nonsense that comes in the months of June-August. But, when it comes to crime fiction, the mean streets of Miami—away from the glitz and glamor of the beach—catch my eye. Why?

The Black Hood Q&A with Alex Segura and Duane...

The Red Circle characters have historically been on the periphery of the super-hero scene, with the Archie characters keeping the spotlight for decades. But the newly re-launched Dark Circle line is looking to be one of the biggest news makers of 2015. What should we be expecting from your book, THE BLACK HOOD?

So I pitched him a story that I’d been kicking around as a possible novel, something so dark and violent and Paul Schrader-ish that I...
