Thomas Pluck has slung hash, worked on the docks, trained in martial arts in Japan, and even swept the Guggenheim museum (but not as part of a clever heist). He hails from Nutley, New Jersey, home to criminal masterminds Martha Stewart and Richard Blake, but has so far evaded capture. Wallace Stroby called his novel BAD BOY BOOGIE "a vivid dose of New Jersey noir with heart, soul and muscle.“

Joyce Carol Oates calls him “a lovely kitty man.”

He is also the editor of the Protectors anthologies to benefit PROTECT: The National Association to Protect Children.

You can find him on the web at www.thomaspluck.com and Twitter as @thomaspluck

She had it on her bookshelf, and I used the book to find Slim Harpo's grave. Thank you for writing it. I love the state of Louisiana and write about it -- from the perspective of an outsider who loves the people.(less)

I can’t blame the supply chain, my publisher accidentally sent these to my old address. Sarah and I picked them up on Thanksgiving, and I was very thankful to finally hold this beautiful book in my hands. That purple cover?

The Big Rewind by Libby Cudmore
"EDIT: If you look this book up on Amazon you will see pages of 5 star reviews. I'm baffled. Either I completely missed the genius of this book, or Libby Cudmore has a lot of friends with Internet access.

The Big Rewind by Libby Cudmore
"My introduction to the fiction of Libby Cudmore is her debut novel The Big Rewind. Published in 2016, this book asks the question, "Can a novel that opens with lyric by Warren Zevon, one of the greatest songwriters of all time, be terrible?" I don't " Read more of this review »
