Sam Tomaino's review on Gumshoe ( concluded "Crimewave is a digest-sized magazine of exceptional quality and well worth subscribing to."

A longer quote from reviewer Sam Tomaino's verdict in Gumshoe; "Crimewave is published by TTA Press, the same folks that publish Interzone (science fiction/fantasy) and The 3rd Alternative/Black Static (horror). From reading issue #9, it is up to the standards of those publications. All the stories here got, at least, a Very Good from me and two were exceptional."
