A Bucketful of Bad Business

Here's a new horror/noir antho slated for publication later this year that you folks might want to check out. Preorders end this Friday, so now's your chance to grab one (and while you're at it check out the Yellow Rose website, too). Anyway, here's the word from yours truly:

"Take warning, Tales from the Yellow Rose Diner and Fill Station isn't what you'd call popcorn horror. This roadside joint's made of wood and glass, nailed up shadows and curtains of smoke, and the people inside it damn sure aren't the kind you'll find in the latest teen-scream feature. They're the real scuffed-down American deal, and their stories cut both to the bone and the heart. In other words you'll want to keep your eye on these folks as you belly up to the bar. And keep your eye on the writers who created them, too -- Erik Williams, John Mantooth, Kim Despins, Sam W. Anderson, Petra Miller, and Kurt Dinan. They've done good work here, and if you're thirsty for a double-shot of horror and noir you ought to grab this one. I'm glad I did."
