Bad Things, they are upon us.

Friend and writer Chris Pimental has launched Bad Things, an online “pulpazine” dedicated to stories of the hard-boiled/noir/hard crime persuasion, which went live just today. He’s collected a nice assortment of short stories and flash fiction from both veteran and rookie writers.

In addition to porting over the first five installments of my flash fiction serial “Stayin’ In Vegas” from DZ Allen’s late and very much lamented Muzzle Flash site, Chris invited me to keep the serial going there, so Bad Things is now home to the all-new sixth installment. How ’bout them apples? Part 7 is waiting in the wings as we speak. After that…hell, I still have no idea how it’s gonna end. All I know is I’m having fun writing it and trying to figure out what happens next. As for the site: I love the pulp page layout; it makes me want to pull that old Royal manual typewriter out of the closet and rock the rest of this story old-school.

Thanks to Chris for putting it all together. Most of the stuff you’ll read there is pretty hard core, so far as language and descriptions, and subject matter is concerned. So, go check it all out, but don’t say you weren’t warned.
