Another Emerging Artists title; this is the third book in the Ways series – anthologies of anonymously written stories which, put together, are ‘novels’ that challenge traditional notions of narrative genres- in this case, the detective novel. Crimeways is set in a New York under siege by an underground band of criminals threatening to destroy a landmark in the name of art. The attempts to save the city from these artistic fascists and their bad taste form the backbone of this book.

Contributors include novelist Geoff Nicholson, ex gay porn writer Jack Pretzer, architects Roger Duffy and Dana Bauer, Honcho editor Gordon Wallace and photographer Nick Briggs.
