Warning: This Post May Contain Traces of Quertermous

Mes Amis

Bryon Quertermous is either very brave or very foolish (or quite possibly both). Yes, the baby-faced purveyor of perversion has started his own ezine. Oh dear, I hear you cry, what foul terror has he cooked up for us? Is it suitable for human consumption? Well, yes, actually. DEMOLITION looks very, very good. And the first installment features stories from Pat Lambe (who has contributed some of my favourite stories to Crime Scene Scotland), Anthony Neil Smith (the ever smiling author of Psychosomatic and the soon-to-be-released The Drummer) alongside Victor Gischler (The Pistol Poets) and Mike MacLean (who has appeared in other cool places like Thug Lit and Thrilling Detective).

This could be the start of something very cool, mes amis.

Au revoir

Thanks Russel for the notice. I have it so much easier than you guys did when you started off. Now of course I'm going to kick your ass and leave you only Rickards stuff to publish.

He publishes it all himself on the blog! All the 'what-what!' stories and the creeping Cthulu stories and damn that boy writes a lot of stories!

I'm dead prolific, me. (Well, except when work intrudes, which sadly scuppered my Guyot competition plans.)

Of course, there's not many places I can think of that would post the kind of mad bollocks that spews from my imagination, so I'm probably better off hosting them myself...

Unless either of you guys is interested in this idea I've had for a chimp investigating crime...

That sounds tailor made for the Dude Noir follow up, Hard Boiled Monkey.

For the price of only a few bananas and a few fresh pieces of lettuce, P.I. Samson Kaboodle tracks down the primates gone bad. Beating his chest and looking for red rumps in dark alleys, Kaboodle does get side-tracked. But when he hears a cry for help from a gorgeous orangatan named Betty Grape, he's leaves the fetid air of the alleys behind to help her find her missing sister, Kiwani Grape.

The may be different if different species, but Kaboodle can't help the strong need to breed stirred up by Betty's presence. He knows he can't act on these feelings until Kiwani is home, safe wit her troupe.

All that stands between Kaboodle and the orange-haired primate he loves is a dirth of clues and a silverback at the Green Leaves Bar who's been baring his teeth whenever Kaboodle asks a question.

Will Kaboodle find the lost Kiwani in time to mount Betty while she's in estris? Will the taciturn silverback ever do more than grunt?

Read 'Monkey See, Monkey Doo' to find out!

John

You had me at "Chimp"...

Jennifer Jordan said...

Ah, Russ-poo, who hasn't had you at chimp?

Not sure what that means exactly, but it amused me.

Russel said...

I'm not sure what it means either, but the scary thing is its probably true...

Sorry guys, but Monkey Detectives are old news!
