Two New Books

Posted: October 22, 2012 in Uncategorized


Time to pimp a couple new books just released : A new story collection by veteran writer Ken Goldman and a first book of poems by Alexander Thorne. (Click on the covers above for ordering info.)

First off is DONNY DOESN’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE, a 150-page collection by Ken Goldman.

If you’ve followed horror or crime fiction at all in the past thirty years, you’ve likely seen Goldman’s name – he’s only had 650 stories published during that time.

The new collection gathers two of his darkest novellas and three of his best short stories.

The book is available in trade paperback and for all ereaders via Amazon, Kobo & Smashwords. It’ll be coming soon to Barnes & Noble, Sony, and other ebook markets.

Here’s the skinny on the stories:

Donny Doesn’t Live Here Anymore – First there was the awful incident with Donny and the turtle. Artie, Donny’s childhood best friend, could forgive that. Then Donny grew up…

Hotline – What’s poor, insecure Phoebe to do when the unstable caller on the other end of the phone thinks he’s dialed the suicide hotline?

A Museum Piece – The strange skull in the display supposedly stems from a demonic love triangle. But bewitching tour guide Belinda also has a wicked tale of infidelity to tell…

Sine Qua Non – Cultured, privileged, prim and proper, Timothy will tell you: Trying to kill yourself can be murder!

‘Vette Fever – Wally’s midlife crisis toy seems to literally be making him younger. But the worship of speed, horsepower and youth demands sacrifices…

Next is ANOTHER MISTAKEN ANIMA by Alexander Thorne.

Full reveal: I’m on the acknowledgements page, and Alex is the son of one of my best friends.

But the poems reveal someone who knows the territory. Alex studied under Stuart Dybeck, for example, and his work is more sharp, insightful and intriguing than anything I was writing at the same age. For now his book is only available on Smashwords, but I’m encouraging him to publish it lots of other places.

Alexander Thorne was born in 1989 and spends most of his time living in western Michigan. His written work has appeared in the e-magazine Phoenix Lore, the short fiction and poetry collection There Are Monsters Everywhere, and in news articles from the Western Herald.
