A Tattoo And A Review, Featuring Paul D. Brazill
British author Paul D. Brazill has a fantastic new collection of noir short stories out called Snapshots, published by Pulp Metal Fiction.
Today, one of our favourite customers, Bill, came by Malefic Tattoos for more ink and got to read some of Paul's dark and twisted little tales of suspense. The first story in this collection, my personal favourite, is called "Seeing Blue".
Here's the opening line: "First, it all turns red. And then it goes black for a very long time. After that, everything is a searing white. Until I see Blue. Then everything hurts. Everything."
Bill says that Paul's a terrific writer with a lot of style and every story was great. I would most definitely agree with that statement. I'm a fan of Paul D. Brazill. He's got some serious grit. Ah, those British noir writers, they make me jealous they're so good. I swear they're invading North America like the 60s British rock invasion.
Coming next month, Paul's phenomenal Drunk On The Moon series, featuring a werewolf P.I. and a ton of contributing writers (myself included) published by Dark Valentine Press. It's a really fun series that combines werewolves and zombies with the classic noir/detective story. Who would have thought that could ever happen.
Bill still has some work to be done on his tattoo before it's complete. The nice folks up at his cottage aren't going to be please. They might have to start locking their doors at night now that the rumour about Bill's new awesomeness is out.
Snapshots if you want to know what the hell I'm talking about.
Check out Bill's review of Nigel Bird's short story collection. He's another one of those British noir types.
