"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of "The Collector" series, The Killing Kind, and Red Right Hand.

"A refreshingly new voice in noir." --Ed Kurtz, author of Nothing You Can Do and The Rib From Which I Remake the World.

"A glorious boilermaker of noir and East Coast gothic. The action is taut as a sprung snare and Bagley tightens the screws with every page." -- Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase and Blood Standard.

Yellow States

Would you vote for this man?
I did.

Seems Bleak House Books is starting a book club, and they’re letting readers decide which of their new titles will be the first pick. The list of Bleak House candidates is far more impressive than that in our current presidential primary clusterfuck.

Anthony Neil Smith’s latest novel, Yellow Medicine, is one of the contenders. I’ve already expressed my admiration for this book. Voting ends March 15, and the winner will be announced the next day. Go vote. Go. Now.

And remember: if you don’t vote for Neil, the terrorists win.
