The International Thriller Writers is an honorary society of authors, both fiction and nonfiction, who write books broadly classified as “thrillers.” This would include (but isn’t limited to) such subjects as murder mystery, detective, suspense, horror, supernatural, action, espionage, true crime, war, adventure and myriad similar subject areas.
Editor’s note: David M. Kinchen, HNN’s book reviewer, congratulates Woodland Press on this achievement. He says: “I’ve reviewed many books — fiction and fact — from Keith Davis’ shop and have enjoyed them all. His editing is of the highest level and West Virginians should be proud that Woodland Press is an important part of the arts scene in the Mountain State.”
