Why Me? By Seymour Shubin
Paperback: $13.06
Ships in 3-5 business days
"It came one day, fully, by itself, without prodding, urging, even without thought: Does the river know the rower’s gone? Does the rower know the river is still here?" (Seymour... More > Shubin, 'Why Me?') In a writing career spanning over six decades, Seymour Shubin has focussed almost exclusively on fictional and crime stories. Whilst such crime classics as 'Anyone's My Name' and 'The Man From Yesterday' feature Shubin-like alter-egos, these forty poems mark his first truly autobiographical work. 'Why Me?' is by turns touching, funny and thought-provoking as Shubin looks back at his childhood in the Great Depression, the nature of loss and the shadow of death that looms over us all. Steve Hussy's introduction hails the book, highlighting that: "'Why Me?' communicates complex ideas with simplicity, honesty and skill. And, as a result, it's yet another form of writing that Seymour Shubin has mastered. What the hell will he do next?"< Less

Paperback: $19.70
Ships 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."

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
