    Crime and Fiction

    Why are true crime, detective fiction, and mysteries such popular literary genres? Are the protagonists, while full of flaws, actually rebellious knights-errant seeking truth in a world of pervasive moral and social collapse? Examine the codes of ethics, class, and ideology in some of the most intriguing and hard-boiled characters. Then integrate the craft of writing crime into a work of fiction.

    Rod Davis received the fiction award in the inaugural PEN Southwest Book Awards in 2005 for Corina’s Way (NewSouth Books, 2003). He is also the author of American Voudou: Journey into a Hidden World (UNT Press, 1998). His work has appeared in numerous magazines and journals. His piece “Wal-Marts Across Texas” was featured in True Stories by David Byrne of The Talking Heads.
