The Abysmal Brutes are back with a vengeance! Life issues caused us to take a longer than wanted hiatus. As we always say life intrudes but you have to make the time to write. This episode we catch up on what we have been reading and writing since our break. We rap about mystery series, value of research and literate tough guys. Writers name-dropped are Ken Bruen, Robert Crais, Larry Correia, S.A. Cosby, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Gabino Iglesias, Ed Brubaker, Laird Barron, Hampton Fancher and Joe R. Lansdale. Rob and Bill share their recent writing success. Bill published “Shakedown in Deadtown” at Close 2 the Bone. Rob got his sci-fi yarn “Sundown” accepted for Switchblade Magazine’s upcoming Tech Noir issue. So go forth faithful listeners and make the time to claw, bleed and create.
