Death's Head Blues

Lord knows I've got 'em.

Handed in the introduction to Joe Pulver's upcoming collection Sin & ashes, which is up for preorder at Hippocampus. This old boy will make your brain bleed. Ghosts of Thompson, Chambers and Lovecraft, informed by film noir and that badass James Ellroy...Pulver's the kind of stylist  who  ties you down and works you over while eerie music plays through scratchy intercom speakers and that one naked bulb on a wire flickers and flickers...And the misshapen thing in the suit chuckles from the shadows while its moll smiles and smokes a cigarette with her ivory holder. There's a big black Lincoln in the front lot by the gate, lights on, engine running. It's late, and getting later.

SIN & ashes by Joseph S. Pulver, Sr.

Thanks for the great intro Laird. I am blown away and humbled by your praise! A Ligotti blurb and and a Barron intro -- Hey, look at all those tiny clouds DOWN there . . . Walking on air is pretty sweet, I like it.
