Jackass Letters: Volume 1

by

Christopher Jorgensen


From the popular website of the same name comes Jackass Letters, a collection of correspondence with corporations, celebrities, and politicians that consistently pushes the boundaries of good taste and polite decorum, often with hilarious results. Now, these irreverent gems are available to fans and new readers alike in a multi-volume book series. Real people, real letters, real jackass.

Indie Bound B&N Amazon

Christopher L. Jorgensen has been on the Earth for over 40 years. It is unknown how many years he’s spent on other planets as a Space Marine.

During his deformative years Christopher was exposed to too much SCTV, constant late night HBO showings of “Excalibur” and “Altered States,” and countless live matches of Jai alai (it’s big in Iowa).

In his ample spare time he likes to create recipes for puppy and to pursue new hobbies. He owns more domain names than you can shake a stick at!

His girlfriend/editor/typist would prefer you not encourage him (that’s her job).


In a time when we need real heroes more than ever, Christopher L. Jorgensen arrives to save us all. And I don't care if he masturbates in his kitchen or not—this is not a time to be picky.

-Dave Hill, author of Tasteful Nudes-


Jorgensen is the master of yanking corporate American’s chain.

                                                                           -Joel Postman, author of SocialCorp-


In these uncertain times, we need writers like Christopher L. Jorgensen, who aren't afraid to poke the seemingly un-pokeable with an endless arsenal of originality and wit, and discover humanity in the unlikeliest of places.


                  -Christian Dumais, author of Smashed: The Life and Tweets of Drunk Hulk-


Like the letters your crazy great uncle would write, except twice as coherent, three times as funny, and for the most part legal. The greatest use of the US Postal Service since the SASE!

Viscous Dogs

by

Henry Brock



Down-and-out P.I. Derek Lasker hopes his luck has taken a turn for the better when he lands a case with Bob Linehan, a client who believes his potentially psychotic teenage son, Bob Jr., is the culprit of a heinous crime. Lasker follows the teen into Toronto’s dark underworld of violence and crime, realizing too late that he’s got his eye on the wrong psychopath. It’s a grave mistake that could cost him dearly. But will it cost him everything?


Indie Bound B&N Amazon

Born in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Henry Brock lives in Toronto, where he has worked in the Toronto film industry for ten years. He currently works as a makeup artist for a number of popular daytime dramas.


. . . an excellent, vibrant read, even though it does rather tarnish the image of Canada being an always-gentle country where the most untoward behavior is ordering an Americano at a Tim Hortons.

-Mystery Scene-


Brock reshapes the traditional gumshoe persona in his debut noir novel . . . certain to become a new favorite for noir aficionados.

-Manhattan Book Review-


I bloody loved it. Henry Brock's Vicious Dogs is a brutal slice of lowlife noir that smartly blends Charles Bukowski with Eddie Bunker and breathes new life into the PI novel.

-Paul D. Brazill, author of Cold London Blues and Guns of Brixton-


A classic PI story with a fresh new voice. Vicious Dogs hits all the right notes. And who says Canadians are so polite? By the end, this dog bites!


-Eric Beetner, author of Rumrunners and The Devil Doesn’t Want Me-


“The first Derek Lasker Investigations delivers a whip-crack plot and devilish humor that goes down like a tall can of Molson's after a plate of poutine.”

-Eryk Pruitt, author of Dirtbags and Hashtag-

Suckle

By

Benjamin Salmon


An unremarkable widower tells a truly remarkable story of loss, mourning, salvation, and ultimately weird sex when he is struck with an outrageous and  inexplicable talent.


Indie Bound B&N Amazon

Benjamin Salmon teaches high school English in Arkansas. In his spare time he builds wooden stools. He does not collect model trains.

An outlandish exploration of the ways loneliness, love, and loss manifest themselves in a seemingly ordinary man . . . is both funny and heartbreaking.
