Their editors have improved the Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine web sites.
Both sites have Podcast pages. EQMM has a mystery crossword puzzle, PDFs of a few past stories, and PDFs of excerpts from stories in the present issue. Alfred Hitchcock also includes PDFs of excerpts of stories from that magazine.
I read and enjoyed Kristine Kathryn Rusch's "The Secret Lives of Cats" on the EQMM site. It's a story that starts out innocently enough and ends up in a grisly way.
I also truly enjoyed listening to Ellery Queen's "The Myna Birds" on the Podcast page. What fun! It was like listening to an old radio show.
