More > rugged Paradox Valley, in the county of Montrose, Colorado; and was reported on daily by the two newspapers 100 miles away in the county seat: The Montrose Daily Enterprise and the Montrose Daily Press.

Nam By Robert McGowan
Paperback: $21.75

Derived of the author’s Vietnam War experience, the thirty-seven stories in this sometimes harrowing, sometimes hilarious collection look back at the Vietnam War from a distance of forty or... More > more years, nearly a half-century, and via the perspectives of not only the soldiers themselves, but also their children, spouses, siblings, parents, friends. Nothing comparable to this collection exists within the literature growing out of the Vietnam War. NAM is hardly just another batch of macho war stories. These short fictions, most of them memoir-based, neither glorify nor even excuse war but come forward instead as eloquent testament to the tragic lunacy of it.< Less

“I had learnt that teachers are almost exclusively smug, phony left-wing, backstabbing, pseudo-intellectual, frequently stupid, hypocritical cunts. But I better explain all that. “And... More > why you need to run, fucking run, from them.” --- After quitting teaching in his late twenties, Steve Hussy became an editor of Murder Slim Press. He then became penniless due to be being screwed over by one of his co-editors. Forced back into teaching, he follows a series of rules to ensure that he keeps his job... whilst constantly watching and writing about the strange and often repellent hundred-plus teachers that he works with. For Hussy, his students are rarely the downside of the job... The true pitfall is the charmless, corporate face of modern education. --- Hussy's sparse, venomous writing - first in STEPS and then in numerous literary magazines - has drawn comparisons to the darkest and most honest confessional writers.< Less
Loners By Mark SaFranko

Prints in 3-5 business days
Murderers and serial killers...Jilted lovers and outcasts... Broken men and lost women.... Loners. Cutting across genres for more than 20 years, Mark SaFranko has excelled in charting the life of... More > the outsider. This collection includes nine of SaFranko's stories... all shot through with his trademark realism. 'New York Times' bestselling crime author Seymour Shubin ['Anyone's My Name'] introduces the stories, hailing Loners as "a collection of brilliant short stories that had me twisting inwardly as I read them...They are magnificent." Mark SaFranko's tales will appeal to fans of the first-person realism of Fante and Bukowksi, while the spiralling effects of being an outsider have drawn comparisons to Harry Crews ['The Gospel Singer'] and Chester Himes ['A Rage In Harlem']. Some of the stories will shock ["Just Next Door"], some will thrill ["Alley Night"], some will provoke thought ["Life Change"] but all have the page-turning energy of writers such as Joe R. Lansdale ['Mucho Mojo'].< Less

More > Lock': “The Angel,” which charts the events surrounding Trantino’s arrest and conviction for the murder of two New Jersey policemen in 1963.

He has put it all in one book replete with maniacal illustrations as a handbook to Eternity.” [HENRY MILLER] “I hear Trantino calling to the soul of the world, in his own language, by his own hand. Who can change the world? Just one person in one prison cell... a caller of the Great Call.” [ALLEN GINSBERG]< Less

Steps By Steve Hussy

“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

More > was she going to do about him? She wouldn’t give me a straight answer. We argued. When nobody was around, I hollered. I threatened. I begged. It’s crazy, what you do when the roof caves in...." --- Lee Grenetts was a cop in Hatberg, Pennsylvania. After a thief’s bullet buzzes past his right ear, he realises he wants a quiet life. A hotel in the Adirondack Mountains seems idyllic. Then the "bomb" drops as his wife, Ellen, starts acting strangely. And Lee starts to accept a bullet in the head isn’t so bad after all....
