Bookslinger Update: “The Wolfman of Alcatraz”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

9781618730732The story this week is from Howard Waldrop’s Horse of a Different Color, published by Small Beer Press. Waldrop’s stories are keys to the secrets of the stories behind the stories . . . or perhaps the stories between the stories everyone else knows. From “The Wolfman of Alcatraz” to a horrifying Hansel and Gretel, from “The Bravest Girl I Ever Knew” to the sixth Marx brother’s story of a vaudeville act tracking down the Holy Grail, this new collection is a wunderkammer of strangeness.

Think of it as the best tasting menu in literature. Try this, then go get more.
