|CAUTION - NOT READING THIS SERIES WILL RESULT IN EXTREME REGRET|
A Grifter's Song, Season One is moving right along. Frank, the creator/editor of this new series got things rolling in January with The Concrete Smile, followed by JD Rhoades story, People Like Us and this month's installment, Lawrence Kelter's The Whale.
Next up starting with April, will be The Movie Makers by Gary Phillips, May will feature Lost in Middle America by Colin Conway and June will offer the first year finale, Losing Streak written by some shmuck that you've never heard of - unlike the other authors. Season Two which is already lined up, will feature more of the same. Terrific stories written by some great authors; Eric Beetner, Holly West, Eryk Pruitt, Asa Maria Bradley, Scott Eubanks and Frank again.
A Grifter's Song description in Frank's own words:
"The series features a pair of grifters, Sam and Rachel, who are lifelong grifters in their late thirties. Their past is as shadowy as their present, but we know that they pulled a major long con on the mafia in Philadelphia, and now they are on the run. While one or the other may speak longingly of that quiet life in a beach house somewhere at the end of the rainbow, we all know that the likelihood is that they will never leave this life, unless it is in a box. They are who they are, and so they continue to find and exploit marks, trying to stay one step ahead of the mobsters bent on vengeance." So do yourself a favor...Buy them, enjoy them. - JW
