Crime writers join forces for Oxfam

Armagh author and screenwriter Stuart Neville is among the cream of crime writers who have contributed to OxCrimes, a new collection of 27 killer stories being sold in aid of Oxfam.

The anthology features Stuart Neville’s story Juror 8, an alternative take on Twelve Angry Men.

Introduced by Ian Rankin, OxCrimes is curated by Peter Florence, director of Hay Festival. The stellar cast of contributors also features Adrian McKinty from Carrickfergus and Irish writer John Connolly, and a host of other compelling suspects including Mark Billingham, Alexander McCall Smith, Anthony Horowitz, Val McDermid, Peter James, Denise Mina, and Louise Welsh.

Following the success of OxTales (2009) and OxTravels (2011), which have raised more than a quarter of a million pounds for Oxfam, this collection of crime writing is the latest Oxfam fundraiser from Profile Books.

OxCrimes is available now online and in all good bookshops, priced £9.99, with all profits going to Oxfam.
