Hoods, Hot Rods, and Hellcats
Not long ago, Chad Eagleton invited a handful of writers to contribute to an upcoming anthology of stories about '50's counter-culture. You know-- greasers, bad girls, fast cars... It's a great premise, and all the writers who were asked jumped at it. Well... I jumped at it, anyway, and I'm only assuming the others did the same. Who are the others? Check this line-up, Dad:
Thomas Pluck. Eric Beetner. Matthew Funk. Christopher Grant. David James Keaton. Nik Korpon. Heath Lowrance. And Chad Eagleton himself.
AND, as an added bonus, an introduction by Mick Farren.
The above-named writers are some of the sharpest, coolest cats working in the trenches these days, in my opinion, and I'm pretty stoked about it.
To order to recoup the publishing costs and to make sure the writers get some bread, Chad set up one of those indiegogo things, and is inviting YOU, the reader, to drop a buck or two. It's a clever approach, I think. I hope you consider pitching it, or if you're like a lot of us and have no moola, then maybe spread the word a bit? This is a worthy anthology packed with terrific stories, and deserves a big audience.
