"Mystery readers: I never miss a Julius Katz mystery. A great series. Simply the best." David Kanell, owner of Kingdom Books, Waterford Vermont, specializing in mysteries and crime novels.
My Julius Katz mystery stories and novel are very different from my crime novels. They're certainly not cozies, just as Nero Wolfe and Sherlock Holmes books aren't cozies, but the stories were written for Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine so there's no profanity (unlike PARIAH which has possibly more profanity per page than any other crime novel!), there's no sex, and there's minimal onscreen violence--and the little that's there is bloodless. What drives these stories is the relationship between the brilliant and eccentric (and lazy) Julius Katz and his assistant, Archie, as well as humor. I think it's safe to say that Archie, who narrates these stories, is one of the more unusual detective sidekicks in the annals of the mystery genre.

Will there be more Julius Katz stories? Yep. Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine recently published ARCHIE SOLVES THE CASE, and has also bought my 5th Julius Katz story, JULIUS ACCUSED for future publication. A 6th story has also been written.
