Product Description

Product Description

Faithless Street is a collection of four short stories that set the scene for the novel Old Gold. Each story is set in the Black Country, in the English Midlands, and shows glimpses of peoples lives as they try to make ends meet amidst gang life, drugs deals and Gypsy camp evictions.

Please note that all four of these stores are also collected in The Goldfish Heist And Other Stories, Jay Stringer's newest anthology.

About the Author

A Black Country native, Jay Stringer was raised on pulp fiction, comic books, morgue humor, music, and films. He found inspiration for Old Gold in his UK homeland and the postindustrial region where he grew up. Currently living in Glasgow, he has been published in The Mammoth Book of Best British Crime, volumes 8 and 9, and considers his works to be pieces of “social pulp.” Alongside writing, Stringer has been a zookeeper, a bookseller, a video editor, and a call center lackey. Old Gold is his first novel.

More About the Author

Jay Stringer was born in Walsall, West Midlands, in 1980. He would like everyone to know he's not dead yet. He's worked as a zoo keeper, a bookseller, a video editor and a call centre lackey.

His work is a mixture of crime, mystery and social fiction, and Jay coined the term "social pulp" to describe the mix. He likes to write about the difference between the 'haves' and the 'have nots,' and to show that violence and crime are sharp and brutal acts that are done for a reason, and by those who have reason to do them.

His first novel,Old Gold, is due from Thomas & Mercer in July 2012, and he blogs every thursday at DoSomeDamage.Com. You can also catch him at Twitter under his own name.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful read to an extent 23 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
On the back of Jay's novels about a Midlands, specifically Wolverhampton, ex cop and the interesting characters - criminals - he gets involved with, I bought this prequel. Actually it's not so much a prequel but more of an in-depth look at the background of the main characters. I'm not sure that it was an essential purchase; it's the sort of thing a writer might keep as background notes for his or her novels and then tidied up a bit for publication. It is not absolutely necessary that you read this before, or after, you've read the complete stories. Regardless, if you enjoyed Jay's books then this might be worth downloading to your Kindle, just for interest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that good, but passed the time. 2 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I didn't really enjoy this book of short stories. I'd read "Old Gold" before reading this and I don't think I'd missed anything by not reading this first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little read 13 Jan 2013
By Vikkie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There were some bad reviews about this book, but they couldn't have read the description as it was what it said. If you come from Walsall which I do I suppose you can relate to some of the areas mentioned. Took me about an hour to complete I enjoyed each little story, easy read. Worth it as an in between book read, if that makes sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant story 2 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read 'Old Gold' and thoroughly enjoyed it, I've not been disappointed by this prequel. I'm also ordered his next book and await that eagerly. Well written, well constructed, a solid story line, full of tension; a ripping yarn indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Older Gold 20 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Don't understand the two 1* reviews. If you like Old Gold then this is £0.77 well spent. Four short stories expanding on some of the characters and themes in Old Gold. The story 'Fathers Day' is excellent.
Looking forward to reading more by Jay Stringer.
