First up is a scorcher from Jason Duke at Spinetingler Magazine, Less Than Living. A low-level scam artist whose self-loathing simply knows no bounds. Duke's use of repetition to create this character's bleak world is genius, and the ending is unexpected and devastating.
The new Dark Valentine Magazine is out. Paul D. Brazill's werewolf detective is back for a another fun, bizarre ride in La Fee Verte. In that same issue, Matthew C. Funk introduces the horrifying and heroic Swamp to New Orleans. Katherine Tomlinson has a tight, funny and twisted tale with Easter Dinner.
Over at Title Fights, Eric Beetner has a cool gangster-and-his-loser-cousin story with Pat.
Thanks for the mention, Chris. I think Jason's story is pretty damned great. I need to catch up with the others.ReplyDelete
I print off each issue of DV like I use to do woth THUGLIT. This IS reading!ReplyDelete
Story as personal as a punch in the face from The Sarge. Hopeless as a nuclear fireball in your living room. Gotta print out DV like David says. It's just too big for a 'puter screen.ReplyDelete
Eric is a smooth, classy fighter with a healthy twisting and twisted uppercut at the finish. Da winnah and still Champeen! Cool.ReplyDelete
Chris, thanks for the shout out man! I appreciate that. Let's see if I can write something even better for Pulp Tones!ReplyDelete
Never heard of TITLE FIGHTS before. Will check it out.ReplyDelete
Title Fights is a contender of a site. Some great work there. And that Jason Duke story is something else.ReplyDelete
