The Thuglit anthology, Hardcore Hardboiled (ISBN 0-7582-2266-1 ) has hit the streets. It features the best stories from the first year of Thuglit, as well as original stories from such well known noir writers as:
KEN BRUEN (author of American Skin and Priest)
SEAN CHERCOVER (author of BigCity, Bad Blood)
VICTOR GISCHLER (author of Shotgun Opera and Gun Monkeys)
CHARLIE STELLA (author of Mafiya, Shakedown)
DUANE SWIERCZYNSKI (author of The Blonde, The Wheelman)
It is my hope that this anthology gets some high profile exposure, as Todd Robinson (AKA, Big Daddy Thuglit) deserves the success. His eZine is an excellent place to find hard-hitting, neo-noir short stories.
I was lucky enough to see my story "Rescuing Isaac" published there. I got even luckier when it was selected to be part of this anthology.
So do me a favor. Run, don't walk, to your nearest bookstore and order this one...it'll kick your ass. I promise.
