Noir At The Bar, Go Git It!

As mentioned in a prior post, I won a copy of Noir At The Bar from Patti Abbott's blog via a guest post by Chris La Tray.  Everyone has jumped on the ebook bandwagon, but this collection is a great example why we still need paper. The cover, blurbs, and foreward by Jedidiah Ayres had me laughing my ass off ( not easy to do) before I read a single story. When it arrived, I opened the package, wife and kids all anxiously waiting to see my winnings. The wife says 'you won a used book?' It is not used, but the cover is made to look like it. It's all part of the presentation, along with every blurb that basically shits all over it. Fucking Brilliant!!!

Every story is a keeper in this collection. I enjoyed everyone of them. I hate spoilers so I'm not going to go into details, but if I had to pick one story that is still stuck in my head for various reasons, it would be "They Take You" by Kyle Minor. Like I said, not a bad tale in the lot and this collection is superb.

You can get yourself a copy, as well as read the blurbs I was talking about HERE

  1. I think the cover looks superb and I know a lot of writers are going back to the way the old covers used to be.
