People of California:
Mr Goombah Gumbo is coming to the city of angels and its immediate environs. I love the posters Eric Beetner came up with, though to my enduring shame I often mix this classic up with Kelly’s Heroes, because Donald Sutherland and Ernest Borgnine are in both (I was only thinkin’ positive thoughts about that goddamn bridge!)
Come join us for what’s sure to be a fun time. I’ll have Bad Boy Boogie and Blade of Dishonor on hand, and if you don’t know the crew I’m rolling with, they are great crime writers. From pulp and noir maestros Duane Swierczynski and Eric Beetner, the bad-ass noir poet of L.A. Josh Stallings, to up and comers like the acclaimed Joe Ide, SW Lauden, and Nolan Knight, Gotham writer Jordan Harper, and Stoker-winning author Maria Alexander.
