The August Edition of The Big Thrill

There are between 600,000 and a million books published annually in the US alone. That’s a lot of books! With so many fresh titles—and debut authors—hitting the shelves, it’s sometimes easy to forget that many writers have been churning out page-turners for decades. In this issue of The Big Thrill, we pay tribute to some of those authors. Sandra Brown’s BLIND TIGER marks her 88th publication. Joy Fielding’s CUL-DE-SAC is her 29th book. VORTEX is the 26th installment in Catherine Coulter’s bestselling FBI series. These are successes worth celebrating. And speaking of success, be sure to check out Rick Pullen’s enlightening feature on international superstar Peter James. This month, we go Between the Lines with the incredible Megan Abbott, and get up close with more than 40 authors of gripping thriller, mystery, horror, and suspense titles. The August issue of The Big Thrill is live now—and it’s sizzling!
