Venus In Fake Furs @ Retreats From Oblivion

“Frank has come a long way. The way people tell it, he started out selling dirty pictures imported in bulk from the Eastern Bloc. Pale flesh, dead eyes and plenty of pubic hair. He kept them in a lock-up behind Winner Street and flogged them in pubs, video shops and amusement arcades. Understandably, he was known around town as ‘Frank the Wank’ . . .”

Many thanks to Lou Boxer and Cullen Gallagher for running my brand new Paignton Noir story Venus In Fake Furs at Retreats From Oblivion: The Journal of Noircon.

This one is a companion piece to my upcoming book, Repetition Kills You, which will be published by All Due Respect/Down & Out Books in just over a month’s time. It is always fun to pick through the narrative wreckage and find out what the survivors are up to!

Coincidentally, Repetition Kills You is available for pre-order now!
