Meat Bubbles @ Unlawful Acts

“The hard-boiled edge of Mickey Spillane’s ‘I, the Jury’ and the drug-infused rantings of William S. Burroughs’s ‘Naked Lunch’ fused together in a whiskey-soaked opiate haze.”

David Nemeth, Unlawful Acts on Meat Bubbles & Other Stories

I felt downright queasy reading David Nemeth’s review of Meat Bubbles – and I was the one who wrote the damned book!

Unlawful Acts is a must-read crime blog, and David’s passion for independent crime fiction is infectious. I’m very happy that he crawled back into the Paignton Noir wasteland after going toe-to-toe with series opener Skull Meat last year.

I would like to tell you that I will never write another book as extreme as Meat Bubbles, but then I cast an eye over my works-in-progress and I’m not so sure!

My next book, Repetition Kills You (out in September from All Due Respect) dials down the darkness a notch. Hell, there’s even a love story in there… kind of. Suffocated beneath meaty slabs of suburban savagery!
