I suppose you think we’ve been quiet lately. You’d be excused for thinking so, even if you’d be sadly mistaken. We’ve been churning away at producing some of our most ambitious projects to-date, including our first massive-narrator anthology of crime fiction, a couple of literary fiction pearls, and enough science fiction and fantasy selections to send you to other worlds, alternate universes, or altered states. Enjoy!
Las Vegas Noir by Jarret Keene and Todd James Pierce (Editors). Narrated by Darla Middlebrook, Arielle Lipshaw, Mike Vendetti, Charles Bice, Lee Ann Howlett, Diane Havens, Denice Stradling, and Kenneth Campbell. Published in print by Akashic Books.
“…this anthology does a fine job of illuminating the dark underbelly of Sin City.” — Publishers Weekly
SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY
A Book of Tongues by Gemma Files. Narrated by Gordon Mackenzie. Published in print by ChiZine.
“(A) boundary-busting horror-fantasy debut . . . Files smoothly weaves an unusual magic system, Aztec mythology, and a raunchily explicit gay love story into a classic western tale of outlaws and revenge . . . this promising debut fully delivers both sizzling passions and dark chills.” — Publishers Weekly
A Rope of Thorns by Gemma Files. Narrated by Gordon Mackenzie. Published in print by ChiZine.
“This sequel to A Book of Tongues paints a stark, vivid, and gory picture of the ‘wild west’ in the years following the Civil War. . . . Filled with antiheroes, sacrificial victims, and supernatural beings, Files’s latest is not for the squeamish but should delight fans of gothic Western fantasy and Central American myths.” — Library Journal
The Other by Matthew Hughes. Narrated by Edward Willett. Published in print by Underland Press.
“Hughes serves up equal measures of wit, intrigue, and seat-of-the-pants action and even dabbles a little in Jungian psychology.” — Booklist
The Silence of Trees by Valya Dudycz Lupescu. Narrated by Xe Sands. Published in print by Wolfsword Press.
“Few book reviews start with a foot rub but, really, more should. In one of the most thrilling scenes in Valya Dudycz Lupescu’s first novel—exciting for its unabashed passion and feminism, and most important for the new story it promises to start even thirty pages from the book’s end…” — Kristin Thiel, The Nervous Breakdown
Trash Sex Magic by Jennifer Stevenson. Narrated by Arielle Lipshaw. Published in print by Small Beer Press.
“This just absolutely rocks. It’s lyrical, it’s weird and it’s sexy in a very funky way. Trash Sex Magic is full of people you would maybe be afraid to meet in real life, but once you’ve met them fictionally you are damn sorry you can’t at least have a beer with them.” — Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife
