Tom Leins is a disgraced ex-film critic from Paignton, UK. Over the last 15 years his short stories have been widely published in magazines, anthologies and online.
He is currently working on a series of ‘Paignton Noir’ novels, including Boneyard Dogs, Thirsty & Miserable and All Is Swell In The Grinding Light.
Skull Meat, a Paignton Noir novelette, was published as an e-book in June 2017. This will be followed by a Paignton Noir collection, Meat Bubbles (& Other Stories) in early 2018. In September 2018 All Due Respect will publish Repetition Kills You, which Leins describes as a ‘literary jigsaw puzzle’.
Work on a collection of wrestling-themed noir, The Good Book, is almost complete.
