Maggie Topkis, owner of the Partners & Crime bookstore in New York, has started a new publishing venture she's calling Felony and Mayhem. F&M will be printing trade paperback editions of previously published mystery novels that have gone out of print. This is a small-scale venture right now, but the benefit to writers is terrific -- seeing one's older books back in print again.

Two of mine Maggie is reprinting are The Fourth Wall and Your Eyelids Are Growing Heavy. The former will be available in July; I don't have a pub date for Eyelids yet.

I'm especially glad about The Fourth Wall. That was my first mystery novel and I still have a soft spot for it.
