I'd be remiss not to mention that Josh Stallings who embodies all three with verve and nerve (noir as fuck, self published and available almost exclusively online) has a brand new book available. Young Americans is a blast.
check em out.
Cruel Yule that features a murderer's row of their most thuggy bunch (Rob Hart, Jordan Harper, Hilary Davidson, Thomas Pluck, Ed Kurtz, Brace Godfrey (as discovered by Johnny Shaw), Justin Porter, Angel Luis Colón, Jen Conley, Terrence McCauley and even ol' Krampus hisself, Todd Robinson).
Down & Out Books has got a slew of Kindle deals right now too. Ebooks by Les Edgerton, Eric Beetner, Gary Phillips, Trey Barker, Ryan Sayles, Rob Brunet, Liam Sweeny, J.I. Abramo and more for less than a dollar. Do it.
Bad Beat is out now and you'd be stupider than you look not to pick it up.
Subterranean Books in St. Louis, Nightbird Books in Fayetteville, Arkansas, The Wild Detectives in Dallas, and I can't wait to check out The Bookbar in Denver next week. If you're around I'd sure love to see you there on Dec. 10 for N@B with Jon Bassoff, CJ Howell, Mario Acevedo, Jennifer Kincheloe, Michael Lion, J.I. Abramo, Mark Stevens and Benjamin Whitmer. Or you know, fuck you.
