"These stories are bleak, dark, and downright scary, but ultimately the end result is an incredibly life-affirming and rewarding literary experience."
-- Joseph Ridgwell, The Beat, December 2008
From the Publisher
Mark SaFranko's tales of loners will appeal to fans of the first-person realism of the Zajack novels and Dan Fante ('Mooch'), while the spiralling effects of being an outsider have drawn comparisons to Harry Crews ['The Gospel Singer'] and Chester Himes ['A Rage In Harlem'].
Some of the stories will shock ["Just Next Door"], some will thrill ["Alley Night"], some will provoke thought ["Life Change"] but all have the page-turning energy of writers such as Joe R. Lansdale ['Mucho Mojo'].
