Welcome to the latest issue of The Big Click. We’re expanding again, this time into the exciting world of capsule reviews. Please do check out John Harwood’s The Asylum and Sara Gran’s Claire DeWitt and the Bohemian Highway. If you are a publisher, publicist, or author, and would like to submit a forthcoming (not current, not backlist) book for review, drop us a line at the contact form. Please do not simply drop a million Kindle files on us. We will hate you forever.
We’re very pleased to bring you this month two writers that have been working under the radar for years. Jason Ridler is known for his fantasy pulp, and has moved into self-publishing a pro-wrestling/role-playing game/comic book convention thriller series for e‑readers. It’s for nerds… perhaps like the somewhat nerdy protagonist of his story in this issue, “Bragging Rights.”
Ann Sterzinger has been a zinester, a satirist, a fantasist, and is now both a futurist and a noirist with her “You Are Watching.” It’s not the usual sort of crime story we publish, but we could not resist it. Nobody can resist anything anymore!
Interim columnist Barry Graham is back and is picking fights with the UKGuardian. How punk rock is noir anyway? Anyone who has spent a night burning with furious energy over whether or not to sell out by actually learning to tune their guitars will sympathize.
Thanks for reading—please continue buying our ebook editions, and consider a Weightless Books subscription. We’ll see you in sixty days, with noir from around the world… and maybe even from across time!
