CrimeWAV - Rich Katz reads Heavy Duty

This one has Phoenix thugs, Chi-town bad guys, and plenty of gats. You know what I say, "I LOVE GATS!"

Plus, this is the kind of story you'll need to cut away some real time to enjoy. Comes in at just over 50 min. So enjoy, dig in, and plug those buds in your ears.

We're hosted again by the good boys from the Booked. podcast, Robb and Liv. They hold it down more than amicably, as usual.

Here's all you need to know about Rich:

Rich Katz lived on both coasts and in the Midwest but now calls the Southwest home. Five years ago, he took an online writing course from Seth Harwood and hasn’t stopped writing crime fiction since. Several of his short stories have been posted online and one adapted into an indie screenplay. “Heavy Duty” is his third contribution to CrimeWAV. Rich is currently writing a crime novel about alpha dogs and underdogs who learn that even a rabid dog has his day.

He has never played Bryan Cranston on television.

That's my boy. You can find his other CrimeWAV stories here:

Hilary Davidson reads from Blood Always Tells

This month’s episode brings you Hilary Davidson reading from her new book BLOOD ALWAYS TELLS, live at Noir at the Bar in Milwaukee. As you’ll hear in the episode, the Booked. boys stumble a bit with Hilary’s bio because in addition to being prolific in crime, she also has a huge presence in nonfiction travel writing. But those books can take a walk, because we’re here for the down and dirty. 


As far as credentials go, Hilary won the 2011 Anthony Award for Best First Novel for THE DAMAGE DONE. The book also earned a Crimespree Award and was a finalist for the Arthur Ellis and Macavity awards. The sequel, THE NEXT ONE TO FALL, a mystery set in Peru, was published by Forge in February 2012; the third novel in the series, EVIL IN ALL ITS DISGUISES, was published in March 2013. Hilary's first standalone novel, BLOOD ALWAYS TELLS, was published by Forge in April 2014.

Noir at the Bar is a live reading series originated by Peter Rozovsky, and popularized by Jedidiah Ayres. There are N@B affiliates in cities around the United States and abroad, including a thriving event in New York hosted by Todd Robinson and Glenn Gray. There’s also a strong Los Angeles series, hosted by Stephen Blackmoore and Eric Beetner. If you’re lucky enough to catch wind of one in your city, count yourself lucky. 

Don’t forget to wish Seth a happy birthday, he’s been hard at work writing and recording, to get the freshest stories to your eyes and ears. As always, scoop up Seth’s books, including his Jack Palms series and his awesome stories he’s publishing in the Kindle Worlds, including As Much Protein As An Egg and other stories in the Vonnegut world. 

Your hosts for this episode are the boys from Booked. check them out! And as always, as a special treat for CrimeWav listeners, you can get the Booked. Anthology, featuring stories by CrimeWAV alum such as Nik Korpon and Seth himself, for $5 off the Amazon price! That’s three bucks for 27 amazing stories. Top that!

Barry Graham reads "Big Davey Joins the Majority"

Serious. Seriously.Serious. Seriously.This time around, Barry Graham reads his story “Big Davey Joins the Majority”. Graham is the author of many books and short stories, and his colorful author bio hints at a very interesting life. In this episode, you’ll enjoy the story of a hardened criminal, and the consequences of his actions. Then you’ll endure Robb & Livius arguing about nationalities and calling each other cunts. More info about Barry Graham here: http://barrygrahamauthor.com.


Graham hails from Glasgow, Scotland, though he now calls Portland, OR home. His novel The Book of Man was chosen as a best book of the year by the American Library Association. More recently, The Wrong Thing was nominated for the Spinetingler Award for Best Novel of 2011. It's published by the amazing folks at PM Press--a great publisher here in the Bay Area who’s not afraid to take on any and all comers. We thank them for all they’ve done over the years for authors. More books and info about PM Press is here. Also, thanks to PMP for putting us into contact with their great authors, including Ken Wishnia and Sin Siracco (forthcoming, we hope). 

If you’re in the know, then you’re already checking out your man Seth’s books using Kindle Unlimited, and you’re seeing Amazon’s tweets about Seth’s great work in the Vonnegut world. I highly recommend starting with As Much Protein As An Egg, which the boys at Booked. gave some love to recently.

July 2014 - Nik Korpon reads "Straight Down the Line"

Death-Korpon

This episode,Nik Korpon reads his story Straight Down The Line from The Booked. Anthology. You got that right! A story plucked from the anthology that your hosts Livius and Robb put together last year. And it’s got plenty of down and dirty.

Be sure to grab a copy of Nik’s book Stay God, Sweet Angel from Perfect Edge Books. He’s also in the upcoming Four Corners novel-in-novellas, co-written with Axel Taiari, Caleb J. Ross and Richard Thomas, which will be out in summer 2015 from Dzanc Books. 
 
Finally, anybody who is familiar with the recent shutting down of Exhibit A Books will join us in mourning the delayed release of Nik’s other novel, Fait Ave, which was originally slated to release in Spring 2015, and is now orphaned. So any publishers listening, be sure to check out our boy and give his book a deserving release.

That’s half off!  Also, keep checking back here for updates on Seth’s progress on the new Jack Palms story he’s cranking out. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been enjoying Seth’s stories that are set in the Vonnegut world, so you should check those out too.

May 2014 - David James Keaton reads "Tap Tap Tap"

This episode, David James Keaton comes to you live from AWP 2012, where he read an excerpt from his upcoming book The Last Projector, from Broken River Books.

 
This story was read at the Wrong Kind of Reading, organized by Anthony Neil Smith and emceed by Jedidiah Ayres, at the Galway Arms in Chicago in March of 2012. This is the event that first introduced CrimeWAV creator Seth Harwood to the Booked. podcast boys. So it’s a pretty significant event. 
 
The story David reads is called Tap Tap Tap, which is part of a novella that he published in a collection called Uncle B’s Drive In Fiction, which was itself a part of a larger work-in-progress called Spunkwater, which would eventually become the upcoming novel The Last Projector. No copies are in circulation yet, but based on some Facebook posts, we’re guessing the book will be in the neighborhood of 600 pages, and that’s after heavy editing! 
 
Broken River Books is run by Oklahoma street tough J David Osborne, and their debut run of books includes Peckerwood by Jedidiah Ayres. You can see their full shelf of books on Osborne’s website: http://jdavidosborne.com
 
Booked. has dozens of live reading episodes. If you want to hear more from David James Keaton reading from The Last Projector, or other authors such as; Seth Harwood, Jed Ayres, Frank Bill, Scott Phillips, and many more, click here (http://www.bookedpodcast.com/category/episodes/readings-and-events/)
