“To read Steps is to experience the thrill and disgust of real human emotion, to see the absurdities at the heart of all relationships revealed under the spotlights glare.” --- TONY... More > O’NEILL (From the introduction to Steps) “Hussy treads the same broken path that Messrs Bukowski and Fante have walked before him... Yet, he has a distinct poetic voice, a voice made his own.” --- SUSAN TOMASELLI (Dogmatika) Steps’ narrator faces a career filled with empty-headed liberals, a boarding-house full of grotesques, a girlfriend who can’t stand kissing him and a brain that won’t let any of it rest. But maybe - maybe - there’s another lesson for a teacher to learn. Available exclusively in this limited edition chapbook and set before SK#1’s Tara and SK#3’s Wilson, Steps charts the origins of Hussy’s days as a college and university lecturer.< Less

"Dirty Work" is the fourth of Mark SaFranko's series of Max Zajack novels and follows the critically acclaimed "Hating Olivia," "Lounge Lizard" and "God Bless... More > America." "Dirty Work" is the bridge between "God Bless America" and "Hating Olivia." Max has left school and is searching for a steady job that gives him enough sanity to survive...and enough free time to write. Drawing comparisons to both "Factotum" and "Death on the Installment Plan", the novel charts Max's struggles to make cash and become a great artist. As he writes: "How often does a man love what he’s doing? Once or twice in a lifetime if he’s lucky. For the artist it’s more complicated. He’s absorbed in himself, in his own inner machinery. The external world, the realm of dollars and cents, isn’t usually of much interest to him....I didn’t know what I was. But was I an artist? Where was the evidence? Right then and there I should have gotten up and walked out. But I didn’t. When I suffered, I tended to stay put and suffer more."< Less

Bowl By Fulvio Strano

Dopo l'ennesimo rifiuto da parte dell'editore Romanoff, Bill Bowl prende atto della realtà: Le possibilità di sfondare come scrittore emulando le gesta dei suoi grandi eroi,... More > Dostoevskij, Leskov, Cechov, sono davvero esigue. Bisogna darsi da fare, dunque, non perdersi d'animo e rimboccarsi le maniche. Bill sfodera grinta ma con risultati discutibili. Di giorno veste i panni di agente assicurativo per conto della Golden Rescue Insurance, la compagnia più importante dello stato, nei ritagli di tempo scrive pessime sceneggiature di film porno che non vedranno mai la luce e la sera, invece, si trasforma in sfortunato webcam boy travestito da uomo tigre. Potrebbero essere tutti elementi di una tragedia o prove di un fallimento, ma in questo caso la commedia la fa da padrona e l'insuccesso, forse, ha i giorni contati.< Less
