I Didn’t Say That, Did I? by Paul D Brazill

I Didn’t Say That, Did I? What The Hell is BRIT GRIT TOO?
Brit Grit Too is an anthology of 32 up and coming British crime writers, including novelists Nick Quantrill, Richard Godwin, Gerard Brennan and Pulp Metal Magazine’s own Jason Michel. It is published by Trestle Press.The proceeds ofBrit Grit Too go to the charity Children 1st http://www.children1st.org.uk/
The history of the anthology is as follows:
Last year, I contributed an essay to the programme of the NoirCon crime fiction convention, which is held in the USA every two years and celebrates dark crime fiction. The topic of the essay was the rise of hard-hitting, gritty British crime writers, such as Allan Guthrie, Tony Black, Charlie Williamsand Ray Banks. The title of the essay was Brit Grit.
Earlier this year,Trestle Press published my first short story and flash fiction sampler and I decided to call it Brit Grit.
After realising that there were more and more British writers of gritty crime fiction out there, many of who were unpublished, I l decided to try to put together an anthology of Brit Grit writers.
