The Mysterious Bookshop shared Nick Kolakowski's event.
Tonight at 6:30!!
Nick Kolakowski has a new crime-fiction novel out from Down & Out Books' Shotgun Honey label; it's called "Slaughterhouse Blues," and it takes place in Nicaragua, Cuba, and NYC. Thomas Pluck has a collection of 21 awesome short stories, also from Down & Out Books, titled "Life During Wartime and Other Stories." Kolakowski and Pluck will read from their respective works, take a few questions, and generally lurk around the famous Mysterious Bookshop. There will be laughter. There may be tears. There will definitely be books for reading and sale. Description of "Slaughterhouse Blues": "'Slaughterhouse Blues' catches up with Bill and Fiona, the chattery and gun-happy anti-heroes of 'A Brutal Bunch of Heartbroken Saps,' soon after they’ve escaped the Rockaway Mob, the criminal enterprise from which Bill 'borrowed' several million dollars. Holed up in Havana, Bill and Fiona know the Mob is coming for them—it’s just a question of time." LINK: Description of "Life During Wartime": "Take a ride on the neuter scooter in 'The Big Snip,' selected as one of the best crime stories of 2016. Follow a mountain man who’s not what he seems into a snowbound frontier town where evil has sunk its claws. Dine at the most exclusive restaurant in New York, where 'Eat the Rich' takes on a whole new meaning. And meet Denny the Dent, a hulking 350 pounds of muscle who wouldn’t harm a fly…but who’ll glad crush a bully’s skull. And read the Jay Desmarteaux yarn that takes off where Bad Boy Boogie ends." LINK: It will be fun!
