9781551525211This week’s story comes from Patrick Roscoe’s suite of stories The Laboratory of Love, published by Arsenal Pulp Press. In this powerful collection set in Spain, Africa, and North America, populated by wild dogs, tattoo artists, and lost boys, Patrick Roscoe’s characters- lonely, damaged, nomadic- are outsiders in an often brutal and punishing world. In Roscoe’s beguiling laboratory, science meets emotion in experiments that attempt to decipher the forces of love, loss, and longing.

Bookslinger Update: “Cutblock”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

This week’s story is from Bull Head by John Vigna, published by Arsenal Pulp Press. Bristling with restlessness and brutality, these linked stories set in the Pacific Northwest catapult readers into the gritty lives of social outcasts lost in purgatories of their own making. John Vigna tempers raw and at times cruel rural masculinity with graceful prose and breathtaking tenderness to illuminate the plight of men living in small towns and backwoods who belong neither to history nor the future. A startling homage to the great Southern Gothic tradition, Bull Head is a dazzling debut that heralds a powerful and exciting new literary voice.

Bookslinger Update: “Toddlers and Tiaras”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

This week’s story is from Dirt Chronicles by Kristyn Dunnion, published by Arsenal Pulp Press. A tattooed young man regains consciousness in the Don Jail, charged with his friend’s murder. An anti-social office clerk falls for a handsome bike courier and abandons his former life. An Ojibwe teen hunts for her kidnapped girlfriend in an illegal sex trade ring and seeks revenge. This is the intense reality of The Dirt Chronicles, Kristyn Dunnion’s stunning debut story collection. In these linked tales, urban outlaws in Toronto map out their plans to take over the world while living collectively in an abandoned chair factory, destined for demolition according to a real estate gentrification plan. Their community is infiltrated by the King, a dirty cop bent on obliterating the city’s defiant underclass and exterminating the group’s rogue members; in order to survive, they may have to betray what they value most: autonomy, friendship, and newly discovered concepts of freedom.
