New Book from a Critter Member**NOW IN PRINT EDITION TOO!** Awesome new book, HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SPECULATIVE FICTION OPENINGS, from a Critter member whose unearthed a shard of The Secret to becoming a pro writer. Really good piece of work. "...if you're at all concerned about story openings, you'd be nuts not to read what Qualkinbush has to say." —Wil McCarthy, author of BLOOM and THE COLLAPSIUM

Great review site, deserves our support
Submitting my blog review site again this year. Last year I finished 7th in the top ten behind all the review sites that are huge, have teams of reviews, and focus on one genre. Time to try again and see how I do.
Kevin has been at this a long time and is not afraid to tell it like it is. He is discerning and reviews all sorts of books in the field. He deserves the win!
Kevin is dedicated to the (apparently) dying art of reading carefully. He is the patron saint of literacy.
He's a hard-working, good writer I've read for many years.
Kevin is a brilliant and tireless reviewer and a statesman of the mystery genre.
Kevin Tipple is a servent to the writing community. He does the hard work, when so many others just spout off.
This site is always timely.
Kevin does an amazing job, this is a daily stop for me.
Great source of info on mysteries and ops for mystery writers
Kevin's Corner is extraordinary, as is Kevin Tipple, its creator. Through unbelievable personal tragedy and ongoing life upheaval he has kept the Corner going - and it gets better all the time. I wouldn't miss it.
A great site for reviews, and finding out which authors will be included in upcoming books!
Kevin does a ton for the mystery-reading and -writing community!
