Shots In The Dark: A Short Story Sampler.

‘Another gem of a collection from Paul D. Brazill here, as he dishes up several of his customary helpings of grimly fascinating, gruesome and frequently laugh-out-loud noir. Downbeat anti-heroes cause joyous mayhem while creating (and creatively disposing of!), a plethora of corpses in a bizarre and wonderfully eclectic series of bite-size shorts. ‘ Short stories, flashContinue reading “Shots In The Dark: A Short Story Sampler.”

This Old House by Paul D. Brazill

THIS OLD HOUSE Ten Sycamore Hill was, in Peter James’ mind, the font of all of his misfortunes. While women, work, cars and kids came and went, the only constant in Peter’s turbulent life – apart from the copious amounts of alcohol that he consumed, of course – was that weather-beaten Victorian detached house overlookingContinue reading “This Old House by Paul D. Brazill”

A Bit Of A Pickle by Paul D. Brazill

A BIT OF A PICKLE The ghost of a Petula Clark song drifted into The Bag O’ Nails through a partly open window. A shard of sunlight sliced through the blinds, picking out specks of dust that floated in the air. An old electric kettle boiled in another room. A refrigerator hummed.  A dishwasher chugged dully. AContinue reading “A Bit Of A Pickle by Paul D. Brazill”

The Liberator by Paul D. Brazill

Weather the storm, they say. Let the dust settle. Bide your time. Wait. But what if that storm never stops raging? What then? Even if you cut off one of the Hydra’s heads, another grows back. It is, as Simon Bolivar once said, like trying to reap the ocean. But still I slice. Still IContinue reading “The Liberator by Paul D. Brazill”


‘The stories in The Last Laugh are vivid and violent slices of Brit Grit and international noir, full of gaudy characters and dialogue sharp enough to cut your throat. The Last Laugh is a violent and blackly comic look at life through a shot glass darkly.’ From France, to Spain, to the northeast of England,Continue reading “The LAST LAUGH: CRIME STORIES BY PAUL D. BRAZILL”

Recommended Read: Stray Dogs and Deuces Wild: Cautionary Tales by Judge Santiago Burdon

Recommended Read: Stray Dogs and Deuces Wild: Cautionary Tales by Judge Santiago Burdon I absolutely loved this beautiful and brutal collection of razor sharp, short stories. These tales of lowlifes with high-hopes – or, more often, not a hope in hell – are reminiscent of Nelson Algren, David Goodis or ‘Small Change’ era Tom Waits, inContinue reading “Recommended Read: Stray Dogs and Deuces Wild: Cautionary Tales by Judge Santiago Burdon”

A Story For Sunday: Chelsea Girls

Chloe left the money and took the guns. She couldn’t carry everything and she knew that cash would be a hell of a lot easier to come by than a couple of AK47s that was for sure. ‘Fuck you very much,’ she said to Charlie Grimhaven’s unconscious form. Grimhaven was naked, bloodied and handcuffed toContinue reading “A Story For Sunday: Chelsea Girls”
