28 Years with Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine


This morning I finished up a fiction assignment for Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine. This was for a story about a robbery at a Catskills resort and involves a lot of old time jewish comedians. This magazine is currently my longest continuous client relationship, with my first assignment for them being in my first year of business, back in 1989. You can see other samples of my work with this magazine here at this link. I love working for them, as they are one of the last surviving ‘pulp fiction’ digests, and, for me, it feels like a romantic link to the past, to a long list of forgotten illustrators going back to earliest days of the pulps.

I’ve been diligently saving every issue that my work has appeared in, and I’ve got a nice stack of old AHMM magazines on my bookshelf, but I’ve misplaced some of the earliest years, and would love to get my hands on some old copies of this magazine from 1989-2003. So, if you should happen to read this, and have a box of old back issues in the attic, drop me a line, and perhaps we can work out a deal.
