Noir at the Bar (St. Louis) anthology out soon, to benefit Subterranean Books
“We are now down to the waiting for hard copies to land and I’m terribly pleased with the book. Just goes to show what you can accomplish when you’re surrounded by generous, talented people and you don’t give two shits about punctuation or spelling.
Y’know who gets a big fat round of applause for this book tho? Fuckin Jon Bassoff and Matt Kindt, thems who. Bassoff formatted it and pulled some strings for my cherry ass and Kindt designed the shit outta it. Y’know who else gets a big thanks? Our blurbers – Lawrence Block, Duane Swierczynski, Megan Abbott, Todd Robinson, Roger Smith, Tom Piccirilli, Stephen Graham Jones and Sara Gran. Without their cavalier attitudes toward public decency in the information age I would’ve been without the leverage to wrangle some juicy recommendations outta that prestigious lot.
So, who wants a copy?
Here’s what you need to know: this has been put together as N@B’s effort to help out our local bookselling heroes at Subterranean Books, which is why they’re the only place you can get it. As soon as it’s available, I’ll make that announcement and you can order one off their website or send me a suitcase full of cash to trade for it. What? You don’t order books online? Fine, come on out to a N@B event ’cause you know we’ll pimp ’em there. Are you attending Bouchercon in September? Subterranean Books will have a table in the book room and you can make for to purchase it there too. There will be no eBook.
Not good enough? Kiss my ass. Publish your own damn book.”
