Crime Syndicate Issue Three features ten hard-hitting stories from some of the industry’s best short story writers. Guest-edited by Eryk Pruitt, this issue has a little something for everyone: Work out your drugged-out marital problems and feed your family from the East Texas countryside in Eryk Pruitt’s “The Deplorables.” Find out if you’re being detained, and what depraved results the answer might hold in Kevin Z. Garvey’s “Good Cop Bad Cop.” Reach for the sky and fall through the floor in Max Booth III’s “Below the Angels.” Can you escape a schmuck’s fate in Dennis Day’s throwback historical noir story “Schmuck?” Help your new college bestie murder a New Orleans local “god” in Nina Mansfield’s “Gods and Virgins in the Big Easy.” Think twice before you front on an old schooler in S.A. Cosby’s “Slit the Belly.” Take in the beard cream smell while you take down some skinny jeans in Travis Richardson’s “Hipster Pantsin’.” Show off your new racist jail tat while you dredge up demons from the past in Paul Heatley’s “The Whitest Boy on the Block.” Get your trap music murder on in Allen Griffin’s “Dirty South of Heaven.” Take down career criminals and the ghosts from your past in David A. Anthony’s “The Contractors.”
