Off The Record

Luca Vesta edited a fantastic pulp anthology that will benefit charity.

I can’t say enough about the editor or the fine group of authors he was able to assemble for the book. Not a bad read in the lot. I’m actually pretty honored to be asked and included with all these fine people.

Do yourself, and some kids, a favor and check it out. And while you’re reading, listen to the sound track on YouTube.

From Amazon: ‘Hitmen, cons, winos, bag snatchers, killers and psychos, the wronged, the vengeful and the damned, all darken the pages off this superior crime anthology. Off The Record is seriously cool.’ – Howard Linskey,         Author of The Drop, named in The Times best reads of 2011

38 writers, 38 short stories based on classic song titles…

The best writers from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, come together to produce an anthology of short stories, with all proceeds being donated to two Children’s Literacy charities.

In the UK, National Literacy Trust. (http://www.literacytrust.org.uk/)

In the US, Children’s Literacy Initiative. (http://www.cliontheweb.org/)
