The American
Crime Writers League

The American Crime Writers League (ACWL) was formed in the late 1980s by a group of writers looking for "a private forum for exchanging ideas, complaining about almost everything, and trying to understand this decidedly wacky business. Here's your chance to find out what some of the major names in mystery fiction--from those who write about cozy cats to those who walk the mean streets--have in the bookstores today. You can discover new authors who are not yet household names but intend to be. You'll find covers, capsule reviews, interviews, circus acts, conference information, uncensored photos of best-selling authors, agents' home telephone numbers, tour schedules, what authors truly think of Ben & Jerry's, and much more," according to author Joan Hess, a past-president of the League.
