"Highlighting lowlifes in hardboiled homilies - these stories stick it in and break it off. Tender as a brick, subtle as a Molotov Cocktail." - Jedidiah Ayres author of Fierce Bitches.
"ALL DUE RESPECT is the sort of anthology you dole out to yourself piecemeal. You read 'Even Sven' and then shake your head, looking off into the distance, trying to make sure you start breathing again. You read Matt Funk and Patti Abbott the way you eat a good meal in that restaurant you go to for your anniversary. You savor the characters, the plot undertones. When a Joe Clifford character says that something 'tastes like a cat's ass,' you nod that, yeah, that character probably has that experience. Full of great stories from David Cranmer, R Thomas Brown, Fiona Johnson, Ryan Sayles and more, ALL DUE RESPECT is a book you'll read a story at a time, maybe one a night, like that after-dinner drink you can't put down." - Steve Weddle, editor, NEEDLE: A Magazine of Noir
"ALL DUE RESPECT is full of bars and beatings, guns and grifters, not necessarily the kind of crime to cozy up with by the fire, unless it's one of those burning cars on the side of the road. All of these were good fast reads. Highly recommended." - David James Keaton, author of FISH BITES COP! Stories To Bash Authorities
urban decay meets the eldritch borders of another world: WEIRD NOIR.
Featuring thugs who sprout claws and fangs, gangsters with tentacles and the
occasional succubus siren. The ambience is pure noir but the characters
aren’t just your average molls and mugs—the vamps might just be vamps. It’s
Patricia Highsmith meets Shirley Jackson or Dashiell Hammett filtered
through H. P. Lovecraft. Mad, bad and truly dangerous to know, but
irresistible all the same.

Black Sails, Disco Inferno is a retelling of the classic medieval romance of Tristan and Isolde, turning things on their head by reversing the sex of the chief protagonists and placing them in a '70's pulp/noir world.
Andrez Bergen's latest novel exposes layers of the bullet-riddled pulp/noir world of Trista and Issy amidst a sensual, disco-infused narrative overflowing with shady schemes, double dealings, cruel brutality and spellbinding mystery.
