J. Box, Declan Burke, Scott Cupp, Christa Faust, Ed Gorman, Carolyn Haines, David Handler, Gar Anthony Haywood, Cameron Hughes, Dean James, Jennifer Jordan, Toni Kelner, Joe R. Lansdale, Russel McLean, Denise Mina, Marcia Muller, Gary Phillips, Scott Phillips, Tom Piccirilli, Bill Pronzini, Cornelia Read, James Reasoner, Kat Richardson, S. J.
