Crooked Holster is an annual anthology of mystery, crime and thriller, set up to showcase the devious doings of the best new and established writers. We started in 2015, and what was originally designed to be a one off project for our Masters in Creative Writing has developed into an annual publication.

Although there are loads of fantastic online publications for crime writing, we wanted to provide something in print. There are many great options for other writing genres or literary writing  out there, but there seemed to be a dearth of printed anthologies or regular publications for those of us who like to be a bit more crooked in our scribblings!

We are crookedly happy to announce that volumes one to three are available on Amazon. Volume one has also been re-released in a groovy new cover so it matches our new look.

You can buy copies here at Amazon in paperback or kindle.

Ritually Yours,
