All Due Respect books snags two kick-ass William Wallace novellas!!!!!!!

Man, this guy can write great crime.

ADR Magazine Sales Numbers

I saw a blog post recently in which a short story writer guessed that about 100 people would read any short story he published. I saw another blog post a while back in which a writer guessed that a particular magazine only sold 50 copies per issue.I used to do the same thing–guess at how […]

The Story Behind A Pack of Lies

I wrote this very short book (long short story? I don’t know, I get tired of labeling fiction) about a sleazeball reporter, Lionel Kaspar. It’s called A Pack of Lies and it’s one half of Two Bullets Solve Everything, along with a shorty by Ryan Sayles. This is the most autobiographical thing I’ve written. I took […]

ALL THE YOUNG WARRIORS by Anthony Neil Smith

So I’m, uh, a little late to this party. But this is a remarkably good book, so I felt compelled to post about it. What starts out looking like a police procedural is actually the story of two young American-Somali men who venture to Somalia to fight in a holy war. They take wildly divergent […]
