The mystery field has undergone a change in recent years. According to the December 2004 MWA letter: "Now it is time to recognize that the field has broadened and diversified since its inception. We are all over the map - from darkest noir to softest cozy; from-just-the-facts-ma'am to fantasy and science fiction; from historical romance to futuristic techno-thriller."
This newly defined mystery story is our priority. All kinds - softboiled, hardboiled, not boiled at all; the traditional P.I. as well as unorthodox finders, amateur sleuths, police detectives, new age detective, magical Private Investigators, you name it; and we also seek tales with a supernatural or speculative fiction touch.
We're wide open -- there's room in Mystery for cross genre material -- speculative fiction, horror, fantasy. Who says a werewolf can't be a P.I.? Or, perhaps you can do something completely different.
Since its founding, Mysteical-E has been interested in mystery and the "mysterious" in general -- so your stories, articles, and ideas in this vein are welcome.
