Jason Duke will be appearing at Crimewav at some point this week with the first episode of his novella, PHOENIX NIGHTLIFE.

From Jason himself:

Keep an eye out @CRIMEWAV.COM this week for the first of four episodes of my serialized novella PHOENIX NIGHTLIFE.

First and foremost, a big shout out to Seth Harwood and Aldo Calcagno for making this happen, who have my respect, gratitutde and appreciation. I can’t thank them enough for giving me this opportunity.

I think the four episodes will be released over the next month or so, about one per week. Not sure, but I think the text version will also be available at some point on Darkest Before the Dawn, if you can’t stand the sound of my voice and would rather read it instead. There’s some writing I left out of the podcasts that you can read in the text.

The novella originated from a short story that was published nine years ago in Plots With Guns. Yeah, it’s taken me nine years, off and on, to finish the thing, but fuck it, better late than never.

So love it or hate it, call it the greatest thing since Dashiell Hammett, call it a piece of shit, just read it and call it something, and spread the word. Thanks.

Saw the Trailer on FB. Wow. Dark black and seamy at the edges. The camera work is astounding. Got my attention for sure.
