Roger and Janet Carden are the husband and wife team behind Crimson Streets (2016–present), an online magazine dedicated to fiction in the style of the pulp magazines of yesteryear. They focus on fast paced stories of action, adventure, and intrigue; from hard-boiled detectives and dangerous dames, to bold aviators and unspeakable horrors. Before starting Crimson Streets, both Roger and Janet worked with a team which published The Familiar (1988–1998), a professional print magazine dedicated to role-playing and adventure games. Roger is a co-founder of the Game Publishers Association, as well as an early supporter and member of CAR-PGa, the Committee for the Advancement or Role-Playing Games. Both enjoy playing “let’s pretend” with their friends via table-top role-playing games, Janet is a fan of mystery and crime novels, whereas Roger is a fan of classic science-fiction and fantasy. They both really enjoy genre movies; the good ones… and the really, really bad ones.
