DEAD LETTER OFFICE
Daniel Natal

"The gift for metaphor Mr. Natal demonstrates lifts the prose above that of the typical “suspense novel”. It's a thinking man's thriller."

PULLED FROM THE RIVER

HOLLYWOOD BUCKAROO
Tracy DeBrincat

"If Kurt Vonnegut teamed up with J.D. Salinger to write a teaser for Six Feet Under and The Coen Brothers filmed it, you’d have a sense of the gorgeous, off-beat, poetic, deep, astonishingly hilarious, intimate, touching family of characters that Tracy DeBrincat has created in Hollywood Buckaroo.”
