City of Heretics at Snubnose Press

It's been officially announced now at their website and on the ever-present social networks, so I reckon I can say it here, at last:

My second novel, CITY OF HERETICS, has been adopted and given a comfy home by the terrific SNUBNOSE PRESS, and should see the light of day come 2012.

Snubnose is a relatively new publisher, an off-shoot of Spinetingler Magazine, and has been putting out some really class stuff these last few months by the likes of Keith Rawson, Patricia Abbott and Sandra Ruttan. Coming very soon will be books by Helen Fitzgerald, Nik Korpon, and Vern E. Smith. Oh, and now me.

They're a small press with big goals, committed to publishing edgy, original crime fiction. They have so far proven to be absolutely fearless... and that more than anything really appeals to me as a writer and as a reader.

Naturally, I have a great deal of work to do in the meantime-- re-writes, editing, all that glamorous writer stuff. So after the series of "No Rules" guest posts are wrapped up (sometime in mid-December, I think) you'll see less activity here at Psycho-Noir for a bit, probably only one or two posts a week.

But I promise to make it worth it in the long run. City of Heretics is a much different novel than The Bastard Hand, leaner and considerably more hardboiled, and working with Brian Lindenmuth will, no doubt, make it even more so.

Thanks, friends, for all your support...


  1. Fucking splendid news Heath! Just fucking splendid!!!

  2. I'm very happy to hear this. You've been very secretive about that project.

  3. Welcome to the Snubnose family.

  4. That's great news, hearty congratulations.

  5. Great stuff! Really looking forward to it!

  6. Hats off! Great news, and I will be sure to get a copy. I have BASTARD HAND, way way way up there atop the to-be-read pile. And a ponderous pile it is. I compile this pile with books unread in life. I forged it volume by volume...
    Sorry. It's just that that pile makes me channel Jacob Marley.
    Again, congrats (love the fatal female at the top of the Psycho-Noir page, too, by the way).

  7. Serious congratulations are in order, Heath. Well done!

  8. Thanks, everyone. I'm very excited to be working with Brian and the other Snubnose people.
